“Why do cows lie when it’s raining?"/"To keep each udder dry.”

A cow riddle is:

Q: Why do cows lie down when it’s raining?
A: To keep each udder dry.


“Udder” sounds like “other.” The riddle was printed in the book I Know an Old Lady (1992) by Brough Girling and Arthur Robins.

When it rains, cows normally lie down. The reason for this is to keep each udder dry.
