Sheeps is sooo stupid...

I know I shouldn't laugh but this article just makes my Friday. In part, it reads:

450 Sheep Jump to Their Deaths in Turkey

STANBUL, Turkey - First one sheep jumped to its death. Then stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched as nearly 1,500 others followed, each leaping off the same cliff, Turkish media reported.
In the end, 450 dead animals lay on top of one another in a billowy white pile, the Aksam newspaper said. Those who jumped later were saved as the pile got higher and the fall more cushioned, Aksam reported.

teehee. :-P

It would be my luck to get a wool sweater for Christmas made from the wool of one of these sheep.....

"He could've told me he didn't like it....he didn't have to jump...."
