“We need more people speaking out. This country is not overrun with rebels and free thinkers. It’s overrun with sheep and conformists.” Bill Maher

Not a peaceable kingdom: If the number of sheep-attack videos on YouTube is any indication, it would seem that sheep aggression is not unusual. According to some of the info on raising sheep, rams can be aggressive and head-butting may result in injury or death. Sheep apparently have no qualms about attacking humans. The use of herd dogs is recommended when raising sheep because the dogs know how to keep their distance, control their posture, and are able to manuever the herd around. Sounds good to me, but I think I’ll stick with cats.
Thanks to Karen for the title.
ABOUT THIS POST
It was originally posted around the time we started the blog at the beginning of March 2010. Next to the alcoholic monkeys and sherry-drinking mice, it’s the most popular post. When it first went up, we got this response:
Overrun with sheep and conformists, I’ve never heard such negative comments in my life. And to think we are likened to conformists? What an insult.
We are rebellious and free-thinking. On our own we produce clothing and food for the entire nation, we are dominant in literature from the Old Testament to todays literature, we’re in the movies, 20th Century Sheep and much more.
