You start a contest where people could earn virtual reputation for their drawings from people they don't know. It's a great success, millions of people are coming. feeling great and bounding with their new virtual friends.
At some point, you turn 18 so you can finally buy two real cows, create an online auction. You sell your two cows and your blog to a stranger for 15millions dollars.
Everybody gets tired of the cow blog after a year or two.

Republican Model

You have two cows. One dies. You decide to have a raffle to get rid of it, and not have to dispose of the body. You paid $800 for the cow, and manage to sell 1,000 tickets for $5 each. You're forced to give the winner her money back, but still come out $5,195 ahead. Then you go on to form a company, and call it Enron.

Yet another American Model

Your neighbor notices how much money you are making and claims his Bull's balls are rotting off from a sexual disease it contracted from your cows. He sues you and ties up a good portion of your money in court. PETA then takes note of a promotional trailer you put on Youtube and pickets your house, which pisses off all your neighbors. They bring the video to the attention of the SPCA, who then files charges against you for cruelty to animals.

You use up all your new found money on attorneys fighting off your neighbor, the SPCA, and the criminal charges, to no avail. You wind up in a federal prison passing your time as a b*tch for some guy named Tito.
