Yo—it's Io, the nymph who got turned into a big, white heifer. Zeus transformed Io into a cow to protect her from his wife Hera, when his wife almost busted in on him and Io in, ahem, a compromising position. Long story short: Zeus's ruse didn't work out well for Io. She ended up plodding all over the Earth in cow-form, while a nasty Hera-sent gadfly stung the crap out of her wherever she roamed. Eventually, Io ended up in Egypt, where Zeus finally transformed her back into a sexy nymph. Some say Io ended up becoming the mega-famous Egyptian goddess, Isis.
