Weird-ass sheep

So these things were turning up all over Britain last year: sheep with spooky-ass smiles stenciled on their sides. Turns out — eventually, after letting folks stew for a while — that it was a PR stunt for a new amusement park’s roller coaster.

Yeah, it’s a year old. I ran across it while I was doing a Google images search of sheep. Never you mind why.

Remember, now: tomorrow. Here. Six sharp. Dead Pool Round 54!

sock it to me

I will never again look at sheep without seeing in my mind that (kiwi) video :
“What do you want?”
“baaaaaaa”
“When do you want it?”
“baaaaaa”
“Whose yer daddy?”
“baaaaaaa”

Dead Pool is just an anagram for “POODLE AD”. Beware.

There are worse ad campaigns, I guess.

For “Dead Pool”
– DODO PLEA
– DOPE LOAD
– LAD POOED

Add a “The” for “The Dead Pool”
– ADOPTED HOLE
– HATED POODLE
– LOATHED DOPE

Well, then. That was mindless fun for a few minutes…

Rumour has it that Fukushima SFP4 is about to undergo a serious chain reaction … so I bet on North America being it for the next Mega-Death Zone!

Dear lord, Mrs C — that thing still hasn’t sold? I actually posted about it, like, a year ago.

You know, I reserved myself an Etsy shop to sell drawings out of. I just haven’t gotten around to setting it up.

Oh poop, thought you would be pleased and surprised! I was searching for antique tiaras and that little nugget popped up. She does look a bit tired tho, maybe burial is the best thing for her.

Now get to cracking on putting up some pictures, I’ll buy some!!

Mrs. C….That weasel looks a bit angry at things, despite the pretty hat.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
