A sheep tale

Once upon a time, there was a tiny sheep who really wanted to fit in with the trendy sheep that were eating lushious grass in the meadow. The tiny sheep was, most of the time, minding its own business but once in a while it would do something really compulsive because many other people (hum…I mean sheep) were doing it. The tiny sheep learned that this strange behaviour is called the bandwagon effect (the sheep speaks French ok). Anyway, the tiny sheep saw, god knows where, that a lot of cool sheep were getting a new book called Lines & Shapes (yes, sheep read books and some of them have university degrees). So without a minute to spare, it went into its wool purse to get its wool wallet and took out its visa card (there is no wool visa…we all know that) and ordered the entire collection (6 different books). And when the first book finally got to the meadow, the tiny sheep was a little confused because it didn’t fully understood the concept of the book! That’s what happen when tiny sheep want to mix with trendy sheep ;)

This post is wonderfully funny! I love it! I wish I had thought of it first so I wouldn't have to be a sheep (bah) and copy your idea.

Well - this sheep is very confused. I haven't seen the book as my pasture is a locked pasture and not anywhere near your pasture. :)

Haha...funny review. I haven't seen the book in person, but have been reading about it all over the internet. Guess it is not a great read after all?
