when christmas sweaters go really baaaaaaad.



       residents of omaha, nebraska saw something strange wandering their streets over the weekend: a sheep wearing a jolly christmas sweater. the festively-attired animal was captured by animal control and taken to the humane society. “here’s something we don’t see every day!” they posted on their facebook page along with a photo of the sheep. “if you’re missing a sheep that enjoys wearing christmas sweaters he’s here.”

       thankfully, the sheep—whose name is gage—has been reunited with his family. margaret, his owner, told NBC that gage is an indoor sheep and must have followed one of the family members out of the house and escaped from a fence that’s under construction. “i was looking for him, all worried for him,” she said. “it’s like losing my kid. i was all scared and didn’t know what to do.” the family has had gage for five months. “i’m glad he wasn’t eaten,” margaret said. “people eat these things this time of year.”

 “getting lost is just another way of saying ‘going exploring.”

  1. The shepherd orders his sheepdog Thug, to cut three sheep from the flock and bring them to him. The dog runs up to the flock and barks, ” I want three volunteers ! Ewe, ewe and ewe !” 😀 ❤

  2. There is just so much surreal about this – so many unanswered questions – that I have to wonder if maybe it could be an alien and not really a sheep. Remember Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy when all the dolphins in the world disappeared overnight and it turned out they were actually aliens studying us? And the note they left at each aquarium – “So long and thanks for all the fish”.. This has a very similar feeling. Mark my words- one day that sheep will be gone and a note will be found in its place.
