IJMC Earthworm Jim's Revenge

                   IJMC - Earthworm Jim's Revenge

I wonder how many Super Nintendo playing kids heard (or will hear) about 
this one and thought, "wow, did I do that?" Earthworm Jim must be sitting 
around laughing his suit off...                                     -dave

P.S. That makes for flying chickens (frozen) and now cows on the IJMC, 
     but I want a flying pig!

Earlier this year, the dazed crew of a Japanese Trawler were plucked
out of the Sea of Japan clinging to the wreckage of their sunken ship.
Their rescue, however, was followed by immediate imprisonment once
authorities questioned the sailors on their ship's loss.  To a man they
claimed that a cow, falling out of a clear blue sky, had struck the
trawler amidships, shattering it's hull and sinking the vessel within
minutes.  They remained in prison for several weeks, until the Russian
Air Force reluctantly informed Japanses authorities that the crew of one
of it's cargo planes had apparently stolen a cow wandering at the edge
of a Siberian Airfield, forced the cow into the plane's hold and hastily
taken off for home.  Unprepared for live cargo, the Russian crew was
ill-equipped to manage a now rampaging cow within its hold.  To save the
aircraft and themselves, they shoved the animal out of the cargo hold as
they crossed the Sea of Japan at an altitude of 30,000 feet.
