As a vet student I would like to point out that I have never seen or heard of cows with odd-coloured eyes.
I think it means you have sad eyes but I suppose different people decide on their own meanings.

I'm Irish and I say 'ant'. I don't usually hear the 'ont' pronunciation but I could imagine someone with a posh British accent saying it.

They are not considered complete sentences. The shortest complete sentence in the English language is "I am".

I also heard it means "of the" and it came from old English. I know Americans say "It's a quarter of" rather than "a quarter to".
Also, as an Irish person I can assure you that it certainly does not mean "Son of" as Gravy suggested. I can only assume that he was joking.

I just think that Americans have their own dialect which can be quite irritating. To quote Henry Higgins in "My Fair Lady", "Americans have not spoken English for years".

I've never heard the phrase "all the sudden", it must be regional.
