Have you ever won a stuffed animal for your Sweetie at the Fair?

You beat the odds.

Mrs. Geezer once won a Goldfish at the fair.
She named it ‘Goldie’.

I made up that last part.

Why does the black sheep keep three bags of wool lying around? The only wool it needs is still attached to it’s body. And if it’s someone else’s wool, why is the sheep in charge of it? It’s a sheep, not a warehouse.

I read a tweet that said, “You cite an amendment from 1789, you get a gun from 1789.”

And I thought, “you cite an amendment from 1789, your abortion gets performed using 1789 medical technology.”

Wait, this logic only applies when you want it to?

Why does the black sheep keep three bags of wool lying around?

Isn’t that already known?

One for the master,
And one for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Now why the sheep reserved one for the little boy remains a question. Probably drugs were involved.

And I thought, “you cite an amendment from 1789, your abortion gets performed using 1789 medical technology.”

I like that, but I think the year should be 1868.

6. Sobek - October 29, 2017

Well right, but what I mean is, someone took the time and effort to sheer that sheep and put the wool in bags for designated recipients, and then, what? Left the bags in the custody of the sheep? Is there a reason we trust the sheep to watch over this property?

7. Sobek - October 29, 2017

I get why you say 1868 (14th Amendment), but it’s the fifth amendment that applied the 14th to the states. That sounds backwards, but there you go.

Mrs Geezer and I had 6 sheep once.

(trying desperately to fit in)

9. Sobek - October 29, 2017

You ever sheer one of them and then put it in charge of taking care of its own wool until a third party could come by and pick it up? No, you did not.

10. Sobek - October 29, 2017

“Baa has, black sheep. Have you any wool?”

“Yes, sir. Yes s…”

“Holy Crap, you speak English?”

“Yes. By the way, your sheep accent is terrible.”

11. geoff - October 29, 2017

I think it’s also important to examine the motives of the questioner: what business of his or hers is it? Do they have an eye on one or all of those bags? Is the sheep prepared to defend the designees’ property?

Are we still having this ages-old conversation?

It’s a sheep, not a warehouse.

Sheep are notoriously terrible managers of vertical storage.

Believe me.

And do NOT put a sheep in a forklift ‘just to see how she does.’

13. lauraw - October 31, 2017

…it may sound like I’m just being bossy or dispensing some questionable advice, but actually, apparently “there are laws.”

14. OBF - October 31, 2017

When a sheep is outside in a rain storm why doesn’t in shrink? Everything else made of wool shrinks. Now that we know Sobek talks sheep he can ask.
