Mad now brown cow?

Mad cow disease is everywhere.

And no, I don't mean in that burger you're about to chow on, I mean it's been all over the news lately. On Monday, an Alabamian cow tested positive for the disease, and then on Tuesday, the government announced that despite Monday's results, fewer cows would be tested in coming days.

All the coverage got me to thinking: how exactly do you test for mad cow disease?

After a lot of thought, this was the best I came up with (click for the full and massively huge version):

Then again, maybe that's not quite it.

Editor's Note: To give credit where credit is due, I took the lab coat dude from here, the cow from here, the backdrop from here, and the shot of the processing plant from here. And thanks as always to The GIMP and Paint.NET for their awesome image manipulation skills.
