xcowsay displays a cute cow and message on your desktop. Inspired by
the original cowsay.

xcowsay includes all these amazing features:

* Fully configurable!
* Calculates display time from amount of text
* Dream mode — display images in the bubble
* Can draw thought and speech bubbles
* Daemon mode! Send your cow messages over DBus!
* Three different sized cows provided
* fortune(6) wrapper program: xcowfortune — cow will deliver pearls of wisdom!
* Replace the naffness that is xmessage(1)
* Should work with any window manager
* Supports UTF-8 characters properly
* Use alternative non-cow images if you like.
