Utes in the outback
"It's hard to accurately describe the noise a baby cow makes when it lands on the swollen bonnet bulge of a spanking-new Ford special-edition ute. It's a strange cacophony of human gasps, weird bovine squawks and a kind of audible dread of just how badly it's all going to end. Time slows, faces stretch in shock, hands fly to mouths. Then the crashing crescendo arrives with a bass-heavy thump as 450 kilograms of surprised beef bends the bonnet of a one-of-only-75-ever ute in on itself like it's made out of papier mâché."
