Baaa, man


So, somebody dumped the remains of a dope-growing operation on the side of the road in a little Welsh village…aaaaaannnnnd the sheep got into it. They’ve been roaming the village, breaking into homes. Presumably to raid the ‘fridge and watch cartoons.

Eh. Sorry about the lameness. I’ve brought a lot of work home this week. Don’t ever let ’em know you can do publication design.

I am in brochure hell…

Thanks be to Glorious Al Gore for inventing the internet and making it easy to translate these colloquialisms.

Don’t these British writers realize their work is read world wide now? And these parochial slang terms are confusing.

Be Carefull Ms Weasel, you might end up with a real job.

Will the wool be tie-died on shearing?

Hunh. Doesn’t appear there’s any actually evidence connecting the sheep and the pot; and only the word of one local local politician with an axe to grind that there have actually been any incidents with sheep. Not saying it couldn’t or didn’t happen, but “worried locals fear” is kind of a stretch.

Sigh. Typical news reporting, eh?

Deer love it too. Cows, well, who knows?

Any of ’em waving switch-blades yet?

Have I ever been there, done that. An inopportune word dropped in a meeting and you’re up to your eyeballs in film flats.

However, you’re most likely providing a service they couldn’t afford, and it never hurts to keep one’s skillz sharp cuz life tends to hand one lemons from time to time.

Acid flashback man … like you did the same post a few years ago. I guess dumping the dope on the sheep is pretty common. Groovy.

Really, drew? I repeat posts a lot when we go to annual recurring events (stand by for reports on the Cuckoo Fair), but I don’t remember the ‘sheep in the dope’ story happening before.

And yes, Can’t Hark, I thought that. It’s not that any of this has happened, it’s that locals fear it will happen. Boo, nonstory.

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.
