We sure are thankful for the bovicides in this world. Harsh, but then there was steak.

Bovicide is a fancy word for "slayer of oxen or other types of cattle." So, one who works in the slaughterhouse. Getting past the morbid thoughts of the word 'slayer,' it's nice to know that when red meat arrives at an honest butcher shop, bovicide means good eats tonight.
