Yes subby, that does look like a whole sheep.

I'd be far more terrified if thirty partially-sheep invaded Midtown Manhattan.

Although, come to think about it, that might not be half-baad.

"It's not gonna be as pleasant to eat lunch here."

I work a few blocks away and eat lunch there all the time. I'll be there on the 27th.. with my lunch!!! 

/maybe get a lamb dish from the Raffggi Brothers lunch truck!

..as opposed to 30 partial sheep?

It's a sheep all the way through. This one is wholly a sheep, no additives. It's not just a cheap, phony "sheep plated" animal like those commemorative sheep you see on TV.

It's enough to cause sheer panic.

Perhaps we are overlooking the obvious. Subby may have been referencing the sheep's spiritual elements and persuasions.
Lamb and the cross, etc.

i think some rats will hollow one out shortly and walk around in the carcass to more effectively look for meals

FTA: "It's not gonna be as pleasant to eat lunch here. I grew up on a farm in west Pennsylvania, and sheep do not smell good,'' said Amy Arden, 34, a financial analyst from Brooklyn, who nonetheless she'll bring her kids to the event.

I don't know what sort farm that lady grew up on, but sheep in reasonable concentrations do not smell bad. They're herbivores, and more efficient than horses, so their manure is mild. The animals themselves don't smell bad at all. Even the rams in season (who have a distinctive musk odor) don't smell nearly as strong as goat bucks year 'round. Yes, sheep even have their cousins the goats beat for inoffensive livestock odors.

/Yes I have thought a lot about this.

Don't sheep come in flocks, not herds?

"The push for eco-fashion and finding natural resources is a trend now," she said. "I'm under the impression that it doesn't hurt the sheep."

Doesn't hurt the sheep?
How would ewe like to be held down and all the hair on your body be sheared away? Just imagine the embarrassment!

There's always a risk of nicks and scratches, even from the best shearer. A jumpy or wrinkly sheep is at greater risk of little cuts than a calm or smooth-skinned sheep. They don't enjoy the process, but with a good shearer, it's over in a few minutes at most, and the animal feels better for getting the wool off. (Unless they have a dense fleece, like a merino, they will rub the wool off on their own, eventually.)

As a Brantgoose, Bryant Park is special for me. One, is named Bryant Park. Two, it is behind the New York City Public Library, one of the high holy places of book lovers, and three, it is on 42nd Street. The subway station is at 42nd and Fifh Avenue, which is a great address for the imagination.

And look at it: http://www.bryantpark.org/

What's not to love?

Turquoise? Really? A turquoise building? God, I hate the Seventies. The decade, not the streets.

How many city parks have a gift shop, I wonder? The Bryant Park coloring book. Only $12.00. New York Ciy prices, I see.

Hurrah for Bryant Park!

Now what's this about filling the Rockefeller Center with cranberries? I don't remember that, although admittedly I've only been through New York once and it wasn't a planned stop. We got lost on a family trip and went via the Bronx. A black city larger than Nairobi. There wasn't a white face in miles, not even a light brown Hispanic one.

We saw the Statue of Liberty--from a distance. You can see it from a lot of places, actually, and from miles away.

One of my t-shirt ideas:

SAVE A SQUID.

EAT MORE LAMB.

With nice old-timey prints of a giant squid and a lamb.

Those poor, country sheep better watch out, or they're likely to get fleeced...

I grew up in NYC. If they don't have someone guarding them 24/7, they're going to get stolen or abused.

Agreed, Byant Park is a great park. Used to eat lunch there back in the eighties when it was rat infested.
/use to eat on the lawn with a blanket and have the rats try to take my lunch all the time.

I was backpacking along Hadrian's Wall back in 1993 and one morning I woke up to discover that one of my tent stakes was buried under a massive mound of sheep shiat. I just cut the cord and made a made a new stake out of a large stick. Such is the danger of England.

They'd better let that fountain get fully dry before they fill it with wool, or they're gonna have a felted mess like they've never even imagined.

WMittensRomney: Central park used to have a sheepfold.


It also had a herd of cows and a dairy to supply fresh unadulterated milk to Manhattanites.
