Kerrville, Texas — Gene Simmons, where were you on our about November 25, 2016? That’s how the story begins of this Gene Simmons look alike calf that was born on July 28, 2017 in Kerrville, Texas on the Ranch of a Heather Leonard Taccetta who works at Cowboy Steak House, according to Hill Country Visitor. The ranch where Little Genie, as she’s been dubbed, was born is about 65 miles northwest of San Antonio.
Little Genie has become an overnight social media superstar after being snapped sticking out her tongue while rocking butterfly-shaped black markings on her face, similar to “The Demon’s.”
The similarities between the pair immediately sparked jokes on KISS’s Facebook page about the rock star ― who in the 70s was rumored to have grafted a cow tongue onto his own ― somehow being the calf’s father.
After posting it to Facebook, it didn’t take long either until the photo caught the attention of the calf’s hard-rocking potential daddy tweeted out a link to the calf’s story, along with: “This is real, folks!!!”
Drew Taylor, who runs the Hill Country Visitor said it’s been decided that she’s way too tough to become anyone’s next meal and will instead move on to become a mascot for the steakhouse, whose owner he described as a collector of odds and ends.
“She’s too cute a calf,” Taylor said.
