Parenting Tip of the Day
Sure, its cool to be popular, but some sheep just take that way too far. I remember growing up and asking to do something, because "everyone else is doing it". Mom would counter with "if everyone jumped off a bridge would you do it too?" (This was before the days of bungie jumping.) Well, obviously Turkish sheep need to improve their parenting skills, cause 1,500 sheep jumped off a cliff just because the cool guy and everyone else was doing it. Luckily not all of the sheep died. It turns out that it takes about 450 sheep to create the proper amount of padding to cushion the fall for the others. Wow, that would make a big pillow.
Seriously who in their right mind is going to let sheep roam around freely in area where there are cliffs they can fall of. Now that's what I call negligence.
Next time use a fence guys!
Jay, I think they jumped off a cliff, not a bridge.
And I was thinking about the wool thing, maybe it's like leather...on the cow, as dirty as you want no stains, but on a coat, backpack, pants, whatever, stains like crazy! So perhaps on the sheep, no shrinking, but when you try to wear it...
Parent: If all your friends were sheep and you had 450 of them and they jumped off a bridge, would you?
Kid: Yes. Sounds fun!
