That it should not be in vain

So I got asked to do a flyer for the church fête in a real hurry today, and I thought, “I know — singing ewes!”

The hell was I thinking, right? Because I guess we’re going to sing songs or something. Still, I got this far before realizing that…just. No.

I went with a picture of the church. But please enjoy these two ‘tardalated ewes so my time won’t have been completely in vain.

That would be a good picture to put comic bubbles of one ewe telling the other a joke…or…something…the one on the left looks like it’s saying something, anyway…

I know what they’re singing.

“And BA did those fe-e-e-t in ancient ti-BAAA-i-i-me
Wa-a-a-lk upon England’s mountains BAAAA!:
And was BAAAA! the ho-o-o-ly Lamb of God, BA!
On England’s pleasant pastures seen! BAAA! BAAA!

And did the Counte-BAAA!-nance Divi-i-ine,
Shine forth upon BAA clouded hills?…”

Sorry. Apologies. Terrible.

I can’t tell if the ewe on the left is rolling her eyes in disgust or is really, really drunk.

As a certified, authorized, sanctified, baptized, dyed-in-the-wool church lady, I can tell you with absolute authority that the women of the church fête have LOVED the ewes. While you created them to look like they were singing, they also look like they are talking (Have you heard about the church fête …) so I hope you will construct a second flyer, and give the ewes another chance.

Why is the one on the left moo-ing?

I didn’t really have time to do the ewes justice, Deborah. I may resurrect them for some future get-together.

I think the ladies of the area hold warm feelings for the livestock, but I get the impression the male farmers come to hate their beasts over time.

I could never keep livestock…I’d turn them into pets and go broke :+)

Tis not in vain. Giggling madly at work. That is worth so very much.

Uh, um, er, since Platypus picked James Garner in the last Dead Pool, doesn’t that mean we have a new one up today?

Sorry, Weazy, but the Reaper is tappin’ his foot…

I like it! Do we get to see the picture that won your internal debate?

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.
