Cowthink is a command-line tool that displays a text message in a speech bubble coming from an ASCII art cow. It is similar to the more common tool called cowsay but features a thinking cow rather than a speaking one. The cow ASCII art is a popular internet meme and has been incorporated into various command line tools for fun and entertainment purposes.

To use cowthink, you simply enter a message as a command line argument, and the cow will "think" that message in the speech bubble. By default, the cow is positioned on the left side of the output, but you can adjust its position using additional command line options.

Overall, cowthink is a lightweight and amusing utility that adds a touch of humor to the command-line experience. It can be used for creating fun ASCII art messages or simply to bring a smile to your face during the terminal interaction.
