Loook at theeesh facesh!

An inaccurate rumor about Ralph Lauren retiring his longstanding Polo logo led many livestock to give it a shake.

Heads, hands-down winner, Amanda Z.



  1. Oh my!!! ANGELIC!!!

  2. Doe-eyes!

  3. tracylee says:

    this hoofer in hand is worth waaaay more than two in the pen

    just darling!

  4. Love the big bored dog in the background. Totally jealous of all the attention going to the chops, er…. mutton, I mean….. cute food?

  5. AuntieMame says:

    Aww! Looks so soft!

  6. I beep the cute little noses–one in the foreground, and one in the background! Actually, there may be more noses in the background to beep. I will go investigate…

  7. leaves of cat grass says:

    what soulful eyes! and the extra bonus fluffy white dog in the corner distance…

    (leans in to monitor to smooch the corner of that little mouf)

  9. 260Oakley says:

    The new line of shirts would, of course, have leg o’mutton sleeves. And if Mr. Blitzer of CNN fame wore one, he would be a Wolf in Sheeps Clothing.

  10. skippymom says:

    Hey, Oakley, who’s the chap in your new picture?

  11. 260Oakley says:

    That’s either me doing my bearded lady nightclub act, or Francisco Tárrega, a 19th century guitarist/composer. I really must try to do a better job labeling those jpegs….

  12. Well those designers already think we’re sheep, following every crazy idea they put on the runway. So they may as well put it in plain view on their clothes.

    That would actually give me a reason to buy it just to get the cute little lambmie poo.

  13. Typo in the title?
    Should be ‘facshe’? Or ‘faysche’.

  14. tracylee says:

    can I pull an Aunt Martha and pinch the leetle cheeks? yerr jush schooo cuuuute

  15. Rachael says:

    Peenk leeps!

  16. Reminds me of the wise sheep in Chagall’s I and the Village – http://www.abcgallery.com/C/chagall/chagall71.html

    haha….goat polo will definitely be fun to play @jenjen nice picture 🙂
    look at these goats that just faint randomly–they’re called fainting goats lol: http://shortform.tv/w/comedy/fainting-goats

    Goaterdammerung, by Richard Wagner.

  19. OK, I am completely lost. Don’t get the Ralph Lauren reference, the hovertext, nothing. Someone help me out?

  20. Why has no one mentioned the eyeliner?

  21. the one in front is a goat

    the one in back is a stopat

  22. Queen of Dork says:

    Juno: *shakes head sadly* I don’t get it either. 😦

  23. flutterbye says:

    Me neither – it’s got my goat! I’m clueless…

  24. BStrange says:

    The Ralph Lauren “Polo” logo is a polo pony and rider. So if there were rumors of retiring it, other animals would of course flock to be the lucky replacement!

    As for Ramona Singer, ad-wise, see ads for the “Tru Renewal” product line (hey, if Polo didn’t work out). This is her here (in a white dress even, for maximum comparison-potential): http://www.imdb.com/media/rm827818496/nm2942070

  25. BStrange says:

    /knowitallmode off

    Also, the goat is cuter without any makeup at all. This is the power of bebeh critturs.

  26. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh. Whenever I see the name “Ramona” I think of “Ramona the Pest”.

  27. BStrange says:

    So do I. I remember reading that book; it always annoyed me that the older sister got stuck being called Beezus, possibly because my own name got made fun of so much in school. I remembered who this Ramona was only thanks to the product-plugging angle; probably from an insomniac attack exposure to late night infomercials.

  28. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh, but BStrange! Gosh. I hope you don’t only have bad memories of Beaverly Cleary’s (sp?) wonerful books! They are so fabulous and wonderful! And sorry, but I can’t even think clearly (Cleary) as I’m too hot right now and think maybe I should jump in a coool bath of a water to cool off my head and barains.

  29. BStrange says:

    And y’know, the more I look at the two side by side, the more I see the resemblance Prongs apparently spotted. Perhaps yon wee goatie will grow up to star in “Real Housewives of the Barnyard”? (According to the IMDB page, Ramona Singer apparently also plays/played a part in one of those “Real Housewives Of” shows.)

  30. Queen of Dork says:

    Who the hell is Ramona Singer?! Wow. I’m old. I’m so old I only remember people like Farrah Fawcet and that guy who played Starsky on Starsky and Hutch. Hey! Remember when What’s Her Name played Buddy on that show, Family? What the heck was her name? ummmmmm. (this will drive me crazy)

  31. BStrange says:

    Nah. Just the one little “nrrg!” for personal reasons. Well, two, if I remember right (and am not mixing it up with another book from so long ago) there’s a bit in one where Ramona brings a favorite toy to show her class, and ends up putting it in the “toy drive” pile. Gave me the sniffles. I’m squishy that way. *aims cooling fan QoD’s way, also*

    Now I miss my pet goat. Still. It’s been years and years, and I can still hear the explosive PTHBB! snorts as she bounded around the yard looking for craziness to get up to. *SIGH.* Also, goat leeps (perfectly pictured up above) are very soft and stealthy when they try to eat your hair. Or clothing. Or your bills while you unlock the door. (I appreciated the thought, but it wouldn’t’ve helped.) And those big, dark eyes? They emit almost kittenlike rays of “I’m innocent!” when they are caught at the aforementioned nibbling. 😉

  32. Queen of Dork says:

    I remember her name! (stand by)

  33. BStrange says:

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001531/ Her? (Ok, that one I had to look up.) And the Ramona Singer thing, if you clicked my earlier link you know as much as I do, now. *shrug!*

  34. BStrange says:

    …er… I swear I sent that before I saw your “stand by”. *turns crimson. returns stolen thunder!*

  35. Queen of Dork says:

    Kristy McNichol! (whew. I don’t know how that came to me but it did)


  36. Queen of Dork says:

    BStrange: Jinx!! Buy me a Coke!

  37. BStrange says:

    A two-liter bottle, even, O desert-dweller! *hands it over*

    Looking at the site you linked makes me want to watch “Family”; I’ve never even heard of it until now. It also gave me my own “argh must remember” moment when I looked at the “the very best of Family” section. “Thursday’s Child”, an episode title, brought up scatterings of this and I had to go look up the whole thing before the earworm ate me alive:

    Monday’s child is fair of face,
    Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
    Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
    Thursday’s child has far to go,
    Friday’s child is loving and giving,
    Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
    But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
    Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

    …because it was turning into this in my mind as I tried to remember:

    Monday’s goat is fuzzed of face
    Tuesday’s goat bounds with much grace,
    Wednesday’s goat gnawed on my hoe,
    Thursday’s goat escaped! Oh no!
    Friday’s goat is hopping and skipping,
    Saturday’s goat munched the roses but a few might go on living, (*GASPforbreath* excuse me… meter-cramps… carrying on)
    But the goat pictured on CO today,
    Will grow up happy and cuddly on clover hay!

    …Yeah. My mind does strange stuff when I skip a meal. Off to remedy that now. 😉

  38. TrixandSam says:

    Ramona is from the Housewives of New York City series. And I believe the reference to “Ramoner” is what her friend/not friend, Jill, calls her in that classic New York way.

  39. Queen of Dork says:

    BStrange: 🙂 Me likes the way you thinks! thinksesesssess. ssss. ss.

  40. Um. OK. Now I guess I know . . . sorta. Thanks.

    I also loved Ramona the Pest. And Pippi Longstocking. Was it Ramona the Pest who got in trouble for ‘boinging’ another girl’s curls? And Ramona who was told by the teacher to “sit there for the present” and thought that if she didn’t move she’d get a gift?

  41. Brooks Brothers already has a sheep logo:
