In this episode, Mike is concerned about a blow torch being used so close to a cow's flatulence. However, contrary to popular belief, the high amounts of methane emitted from cows (and being blamed for global warming) does not come from a massive amount of flatulence. Rather, it comes from the burping of a cow. All ruminating animals (cows, sheep) burp high amounts of methane. One cow can burp 400 quarts of methane gas per day.

Mike: (with his arm up a cow's rectum) I could have hosted a game show. No, I'm sticking with this gig for a little longer. See where it takes me.
Joe: The pins are the cheeks of your rump.
Mike: Well, not my rump. That rump.
Joe: The cow, excuse me.
Mike: Just so we're clear.
Mike: Study after study has shown that cows find me fascinating.
Mike: If I could do that I'd never leave the house.
