Alistar Support: The Cow That Won't Die

Of all the supports I've played so far, Alistar is my personal favorite. His kit is overpowered, with two stuns (Q and W), a very solid heal, and an ultimate that can make him ridiculously hard to take down. My favorite thing is the potential of Headbutt, the W - assuming you can get the right angle on the enemy, you can send them flying in any direction of your choosing, whether it's back under the turret, into your whole team, or into a wall. One perfectly-timed, perfectly-angled W can turn a teamfight around, and so too with the Q, which is a knock-up stun. Alistar has no real exploitable weaknesses: he's a solid ton of cow that can barrel straight into the other team, knock up all the squishies, and generally cause glorious mayhem.
In short, I cow, you cow, we all cow. Moo.
I mean amen.
