noun for cows launched
into space, to orbit in cow-size hamster balls

"Speef Ham" in other words

Many cows still orbit to this day, although a large
number were initially
sent soaring into deep space by passing geostationary
satellites, which were prone
to clicking the hamsterballs at their orbit speed of mach
Holy christ on a bicycle, Zorgoff! I could have sworn i just
saw a speefball flying past that
meteor over yonder!
