I thought sheep ran scared in Tennessee?

Needed some mutton to go with the chickens I had in Oregon yesterday.

If you're on the NJ turnpike, should you really be reading fark?

I know exactly how to clean up this mess:

I figured it was all the Scottish immigrants.

This made for extremely [image from too old to be available] newscasting on the 11'oclock news broadcasts last night. Somewhat amusing, but please, people. Think of the poor sheep. This is bad.

BAAAAAAAAAD, I tell you :)

I once drove to Atlantic city from Boston. Ended going down the Garden State Parkway (I didn't see any gardens. WTF?)

What the hell is up with all the deer? At first it was really neat. "oh look! A deer!" and then another and another.

Honestly. You couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting a deer.

The round up would go faster, but the people counting the sheep keep falling asleep.
2004-11-09 11:14:55 AM

Freaking sheep with laser beams attached to their wooly hides. Sheep that come from a stock out of Fallujah!
2004-11-09 11:31:43 AM  
Is it possible to read the line "killing an unknown number of sheep" and not laugh just a little?

The Washington Township animal control officer was called to the scene to assist state police.

One animal control officer v/s dozens of sheep. to be him. ;^p

I am just picturing a couple talking while they are driving and the husband saying to his wife mid sentence "Sheep!"

2004-11-09 11:46:06 AM  
But won't anyone think of the poor deranged inbred redneck who's now deprived of his god-given right to commit gross acts of pryapic bestiality on the prurient-but-now-inaccessible sheep?!?!
2004-11-09 11:46:13 AM  
That's sad.

/got mutton...
2004-11-09 11:50:08 AM  
Sheep, filet of sheep, it tastes unlike any other meat...
Sheep, filet of sheep, so open up and eat!

If you're on the NJ Turnpike and wondering why you have to keep dodging sheep - TURN OFF THE DAMN COMPUTER AND CONCENTRATE ON THE ROAD, YA MANIACS!!

"Was that a goat?"

2004-11-09 11:54:34 AM  
Great headline submitter-

gave me a chuckle.

/What's amatta? Mutton hunny.
2004-11-09 11:56:43 AM  
That's got to be right in front of the big Barnes & Noble shipping center. Wow - all those sheep, flattened by trucks full of Lemony Snicket paperbacks.
2004-11-09 12:04:37 PM  
The poor things.
2004-11-09 12:08:33 PM  
Poor bastards. Driving on the NJ Turnpike. Oh, and the sheep, damn shame about them too.
2004-11-09 12:14:28 PM  
Every time you masterbate to animal pr0n, god kills a sheep on the NJ Turnpike.

Please think of the sheep.
2004-11-09 12:15:19 PM  
"Brave New Jersey.. You will let me know when those lambs stop screaming.."

"Was that a goat?"

Outstanding movie to cite, brownout.

okay, where's that NJ Tag?

Normally, Turnpike drivers only have to keep dodging daytripping BMW-driving asshats from New York, and overturned buses full of senior citizens heading to Atlantic City.

/wait, that's the Parkway...
2004-11-09 02:28:17 PM  
So what are they worth? 500 points? 1,000 points?

The Turnpike is far scarier than the Parkway, poor sheep.

I thought they were just republicans out for a stroll.

I was neither a murder suspect,
nor a target for an international spy organization.
But I drove a car down the Jersey turnpike at 80 mph.
...A police officer pulled me over and asked for my driver's license.
He said I was going 20 mph over the speed limit.
I instantly pointed to my wife and said "I'm in a hurry, my wife is in labor."
Fortunately, my wife actually had a big stomach.
I hoped he'd let me go with this excuse.
"Oh, since it's an emergency. I'll lead you to the hospital with my police car," he said.
"No, it's not necessary."
"Why not?" asked the officer.
"Let's get going," said the officer.
"No, no! We can't!
This baby is a demon child!"

"Was that a goat?"

Outstanding movie to cite, brownout.
"Well I'M a Gator fan and I'M calling in."

That has to be 1 of the most under-rated movies of the decade.

It was friggin hilarious, yet it barely made more than 7 mil in the United States. That's pretty sad.

Seriously, I wish they aired it more on Showtime. I love that movie.

Well, Miami sucks. But the cops are kind of nice.

hlx: Awww, I love Shaun.

brownout: I was thinking the EXACT same thing...By the way, have you read the book? It's by Dave Barry, and even more hilarious than the movie.
