Texas Tourism Company to Gene Simmons: Did You Bone This Cow's Mom?

Texas Tourism Company to Gene Simmons: Did You Bone This Cow's Mom?”

The calf was born on July 28 and like Simmons, continues to stick her tongue out when posing for photos.

Hill Country Visitor, a tourism agency that promotes the region of Texas Hill, shared the image on Facebook, joking that Simmons could be the father.

The calf was named Genie.

Heather Taccetta (tuh-SET'-uh), who lives at the ranch with her family, said Tuesday that the calf belongs to her grandmother. Really, the resemblance is uncanny.

"Where were you on or about November 25, 2016?" the website posted, tagging the singer of such hits as Rock and Roll All Night and Detroit Rock City.

Taccetta reported that the cows were listening to Kiss music from a rock station in San Antonio, but it's unclear if that was before, during or after conception.

As the Daily Mail notes, Gene himself later tweeted out a photo of Genie, with the caption "This is real, folks!"

According to reports, rumours swirled in the 1970s that he had grafted a cow tongue onto his own, to give his own extra length.

The calf's rare face might have just spared it from a medium-rare fate.

"Obviously, we can't serve this fine specimen", Hill Country Visitor wrote.
