Reminds me of the old joke:

Two Scottish sheepherders are flying a flock of sheep on a cargo plane from one part of Scotland to another. Suddenly, the engines start making a ton of noise, and the plane starts quickly dropping toward the ground. The first Scotsman grabs a couple of parachutes, puts one on, and tosses the other to the second Scotsman. "Put this on, and let's bail out," the first Scotsman says, "because this plane's going down!"

"But what about the sheep?" asks the second Scotsman.

The first Scotsman, annoyed, shouts: "F*ck the sheep!"

The second Scotsman pauses a second to consider this, then says: "Do you think we have enough time?"

/Thanks, I'll be here all week; try the veal.

Mary had a little lamb,
She tied it to a pylon.
10,000 volts went up it's ass
And turned its wool to nylon.

Was it a 500 sheep pileup?

I wonder how many officials fell asleep trying to assess the number of sheep lost

That's one hell of a crash. It skinned, gutted, and butchered them all.

Fark, it's 3:20AM and I'm wide awake. Now what the hell am I supposed to do to get to sleep?

500 dead sheep?

That is at least half of Fark's liberal base dead, just like that.

Ewe don't have to ram the puns down are throats, subby. I am really trying not to baaah about it, but I feel like I may have to go on the lamb to get away from these baaah'd jokes. Really mutton to see here.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if 500 New Zealanders suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

I wasn't just going to lurk in this thread and wool gather. It was shear determination to really horn in on the fun and stand out from the flock.

Looks like there'll be no wool in Aussie Land tonight!

How did they fit 500 sheep on one automobile? Did anyone else consider that? Is that normal?

/Do they put them in the drier to shrink them first?

1/2 of a band die a sheepish death, the rest flock together.
Or
500 meat deadline for Australian sheep-steaks.
Or
Double decker mutton turn overs didn't mix well.

We will be fine, in New Zealand, there are 10 times as many sheep as people.

What happens when people have too many sheep anyway:

or maybe this is what happens when people have too much time on their hands?

A sheep requires about 3 square feet for transport. For 500 sheep, that's 1500 square feet. If the trailer is 8 feet wide, it would have to be more than 180 feet long or, if double, 90 feet long in two layers. How big are those trucks?

Officials took 6 times longer than anticipated counting the sheep; something about falling asleep.
 
2009-11-20 09:18:52 AM  
They really shouldn't let those things drive.

Oh, and "Free Sheep!"
