that is what im going to find out.
the image is this
a simple cow shrouded in mystery
with tineye we can see the image goes back to the year 2009, maybe even older
one of the oldest results i have found is a user called milkcow500 https://www.overclock.net/members/milkcow500.71741/
there profile pic is blank, but maybe in the past it was this image
i searched google for the name milkcow500
i get results but not what i need.

I've seen a lot of my classmates at school play this when CoolMath was a thing (I remember being introduced to it when I was in the Third Grade), myself included. I would love to find out more about the characters I see above.
this is some hard hitting journalism
