Sheep Slip Sleeping Shepherd

A shepherd inΒ Huesca, Spain counted his sheep a little too well and fell asleep on the job Tuesday night. Seeing their chance, all 1,300 of his flock descended on the town and woke neighbors before police corralled them. Police estimate it will take two months to issue 1,300 citations for going the wrong way in the roundabout.

    Having recently heard quite a bit of the woman’s voice on the sat-nav in England, hers is the voice I hear now. “Take the second exit- on the roundabout” she never loses her cool, tho’ occasionally there’s an ever-so-slight intake of breath and the merest suggestion of her total disdain. I would love to hear her dealing with this! HAH!

      In Italy, we ended up calling her the B**ch in the Box when she would use that faintly
      exasperated tone when we’d make a wrong move. She also called Dante Alighieri
      Street “Danny O’Leary” Street. Gimme a paper map everytime, puleeze.

        The voice can be turned off. And I can’t look at a map in a moving car nor see street signs all that well at night, so I love GPS. Danny O’Leary St is tough to take, however. Not helpful, la-a-Admy! ( Jerry Lewis voice – to add to the irritation quota) 😝

          I can’t believe I missed that misspelling – “Hey La-a-a-ady” is what it should’ve said – but you all probably knew that.☺️

    How did the police stay awake long enough to round them all up.

    Very fluid notion. Hypnotic. Zzzzzz zzz

    This looks like something from “Sheep Week” on the border collie channel: “The shepherd fell asleep, and now the sheep swarm the sleeping village! Is there anydog who can save these people?!!”

    NTMTOM not only shared a story of a shepherd who counted his sheep and fell asleep but gave us a tongue twister. Say the ” Sheep slip sleeping sheperd” three times, fast.

      I couldn’t even say it ONCE!

      I tried. And either the shepherd started seeping, or the sheep did something that required shovels.

        HEE, HEE! Or washing mouth out with soap.

      And those sheep aren’t feeling sheepish either!

    • Faye June 10, 2016 / 10:19 pm

    That poor shepherd – they really pulled the wool over his eyes!

    • Carol June 10, 2016 / 10:57 pm

      Nice! If you really think about it there’s lots of “sheep” puns and stuff out there.

    Yet another chapter for the coffee table book?

    Its like that creepy exercise scene from Midnight Express, but somehow even creepier.

    • Faye June 11, 2016 / 6:29 am

      Ooo you’re right! The off white shuffling. Creepy.

      An oozing of sheep.
