  1. Jay Fry says:

    Am I first? Wahoo!

    Very cute sheepie.

  2. Jay Fry says:

    I should say… very cute ‘lambie’!

  3. Hmm. Good question.

  4. Jay Fry says:

    Oops… forgot the rules about FP. My bad.

  5. Ehh… as some of the CO “regulars” are probably busting to point out, right about now, it’s *my* rule. Like, personally. But I appreciate it.

  6. aww I just wanna tickle those lambie ears. (So that’s what sheep do on their *days* off.)

  7. Mom! I just found out I’ve been accepted by the coolest farm frat house – Alfalfa Lambda Delta!

  8. From geek jokes to Greek jokes…

  9. pistache268 says:

    Happy lamb.

  10. Awww…. so soft… so fluffy…sooo zzzzzzzzzz

  11. “Alfalfa Lambda Delta”: *snort*

  12. Beauregard says:

    Oh man, I’m so happy I took my dog off his lamb and rice diet. How Cutie!

  13. brownamazon says:

    That’s the greenest grass and those are the cleanest, whitest baa-baas I’ve ever seen. They look freshly laundered (perhaps with “Woolite”?)

  14. hee hee, Aubrye, verrry clever!

    Theo, why don’t you just make a glossary entry under “Theo’s Rule,” not only reiterating what appears under First Post but includes a link to a virtual slap. Capisce?

  15. oops, sorry AubREY. No E.

  16. That what CO needs…more lambs! If you put a lamb and a cow calf together, you get Lambda Mu, an actual Phi Theta Kappa (two-year college honor society) chapter at St. Clair County Commmunity College in Port Huron, Michigan.

    Enough of my geekiness…look at the wooly fur on those creatures!

  17. Tony James says:

    Anyone else thinking “mint sauce”? [sorry]

  18. Four legs good. TJ baaaad.

  19. Jaypo — I’ve updated the Glossary entry… slightly.

  20. Tony James says:

    If a baby sheep gets a fungal infection, does it treat it with Lambie-sil? (from the people who brought you “Do baby monkeys sleep in ape-ricots?”)
    T-O – sorry still recovering from a weekend with my sister’s kids, mind still emerging from dark place… 😉

  21. That’s what you get for being the Bad Uncle. And the groaners.

  22. Shouldn’t a baby lamb say “Maaaa-aaaaa-aaaam?”

  23. Mary had a little sheep.
    With the sheep she went to sleep.
    The sheep turned out to be a ram.
    Now Mary has a little lamb.

  24. Jaypo – no need to feel sheepish. The Auld English spelling is perfectly acceptable.

  25. (“Angel?” Hah! You’re evil. Damn!)

  26. You done us proud, teho.

  27. Laurie C says:

    akeeyu, the babylamb also says “baaaaa-roo?”

    (Sorry, it had to be said.)

  28. Tony James says:

    Mary had a little lamb
    She also had a bear
    I often saw her little lamb
    but I never saw her bare.

  29. painful, Laurie, but necessary. 🙂

  30. Mary couldn’t get to sleep
    So she started counting sheep…

  31. Oooh, TJ, yum.

    Sorry, I’m to be classified in the “bad” category too. Even my vegetarian self mouth-waters at the thought…

    Funnily enough, they don’t seem to do lamb with mint sauce in America…

  32. Laurie C says:

    jaypo, it could always be “Maaaa-rooo?” Take your pick.

  33. Lurve da sheeeeep.

    “Funnily enough, they don’t seem to do lamb with mint sauce in America…”

    ??? Depends on where you live, I guess…

  34. oh. perhaps, EC…

  35. re: Mint Sauce in the USA… actually, if you’re ever in Ohio:

  36. oh, yes. hoodathunk.

  37. In Pennsylvania, too. My family used to make it for Easter. (Well, with mint jelly on the side, but you get the idea…)

    Theo, good call on the glossary entry. 😉

  38. Theo… I’m an Angel, honest. The horns are just there to keep the halo straight!!

  39. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    “Alfalfa Lambda Delta!”
    Good ‘un Aubry! 🙂 LOL!

  40. mint jelly = mint sauce.

    just different British/NA terminology…

  41. Mint jelly is one of those old-timey things, a “leftover “–no pun intended–from the 19th c. Like creamed onions, beef in aspic, poulet en croute, pickled everything, and 6 course meals. Personally, I’m much happier with rosemary, garlic, and parsely, everything a self-respecting Victorian would frown on. too stinky.

  42. “parsley” that is.

  43. thehawke says:

    SHEEEEEEPIE!!! SHEEPIEsheepiesheepie…

    I luuuuurves the sheepies

  44. I like mint jelly. And I like lamb chops and leg of lamb, I cannot deny it.

    But I’m also bonkers for real, live lambs and adult sheep. I think the movie “Babe” has a lot to do with it.

  45. I like lamb chops and I cannot lie
    Cuteologists can’t deny
    When the plate’s brought in
    With the jelly of the mint
    That fork to my mouth does fly
    If there’s a line
    I jump to the front
    Cuz you notice that I still ain’t stuffed
    Relaxed fit are the jeans I’m wearing
    Cuz I’m hungry and don’t feel like sharing

  46. [snickers @ Aubrey]

    Y’know I’m quite tempted to write some more to that, but it wouldn’t change the fact that I’m a 35-yr-old midwestern IT dude who likes cats. And really, it’s good enough as is.

    (Wanna sit down wit ya.
    Pass me dat pitcher.)

  47. Sheep Are Cute. Not just edible, but cute. Adults as well as babies–and often they love to be scratched…

    They also make lovely wool, which is fun to knit (if you’re the crafty sort).

  48. Alfalfa Lambda Delta….lmao…nice.

  49. pendlerpiken says:

    lambs are indeed cute.

    grown sheep, however, are not.

    I dare anyone who think so to climb out of a tent in the middle of nowhere at five in the morning – and then meeting a huge, dirty, evil-minded ewe face to face.

    augh. trauma.

  50. Fred Fnord says:

    That has got to be the single cleanest sheep I have ever seen in a long and misspent life.
