Los Hermanos de la Agonía Rethink Their Professional Sports Career

I swear, Carl, I thought this would be an cushy gig. Just a lotta jumping around and yelling, take a couple falls, but nobody really gets hurt. I just had no idea that being a masked wrestler was gonna be this hard, man.

    ?? wha…??

  2. Fird Birfle says:

    OK, I’ll admit to cluelessness. Wot’s a “turnbuckle”??

    Luv the sheepi-poos & they look fierce in their gear.

  3. Fird Birfle says:

    – or goats? I canna’ quite tell …

    I had to look it up, too.

    It is hardware for the ring. It attaches the ropes to the..what? The poles? The corner posts? Something.

  5. ¡LUCHA LIBRE!

    BWHAHAHAHA!

  6. that was EXACTLY my reaction! :)

    waiting for explanations from the goat/sheep peeps among us…

  7. They’ve been washed for a sheep show. The blankets keep them clean until they actually go in the ring. I haven’t seen many sheep blankets that cover the face as well as the body, but I mostly know people that raise Suffolks (lambs with black short-har faces) and not Dorsets (lambs with white, wooly faces.)

  8. Fird Birfle says:

    thanx, Rosie :)

  9. I’ve seen these covers at state fairs. I always assumed it was because they were show animals and their owners were trying to keep their fleeces clean until showtime, but I could be wrong.

  10. Fird Birfle says:

    wow. Jae is a mega-sheep-fount ‘o knowledge !!!

    *bows in deference*

  11. ay, muy hermoso!
    *mwah* smoochy the sheepies!

  12. Undercover Sheep!
    Smart… Sexy and Dangerous.

  13. As shameful as this is to admit, am I the only pro wrestling fan on CO? And the only one who knew immediately what a turnbuckle was?

  14. Glad to have learned the term “Suffolk” today as that is the kind of lamb on want. Adding it to the list:

    Duck (white, named Acorn)
    Chickens (Dorkings, 5 or 6)
    Dog (blonde cocker spaniel, named Daisy)
    Turtles (two little ones, so I can race ‘em!)
    Horse (haven’t decided on kind/name, yet)
    and….Lamb (Suffolk, named Marshmallow)

    ….right now we only have a cat and a fish and my husband strongly believes we’re better off with the rest of the menagerie continuing to exist only in my imagination (little does he know…!).

  15. Moderated? Hmm…wonder what I did wrong.

  16. Well, here – [holds serving tray out] while you’re in the Mod Lounge, have some crudites and fried pickles!

  17. Did ya forget to offer the Mod god anchovy cupcakes with habanero frosting again? ;-)

  18. I bet they keep them warm and cuddly too – they sure look snuggly and comfy together!

  19. 260Oakley says:

    Wrestling? Is that your idea of ewe-phemism? These two are obviously sacked out after a roll in the hay.

  20. No, I just scooped it all into taco shells.

  21. They must be El Santos fan like me :lol:

    When I was a little girl, every Friday night I could stay up and watch the “scary” movie that played on TV at midnight and often it was an El Santos movie. He would battle mommies and zombies, always wearing his mask even when wearing a 3 piece suit!

  22. Omg, lambajams!!! love eet!!

  23. i.e., tock-o shells

  24. Andi in NC says:

    Makes perfect sense, but I would not have figured that out on my own – thanks! gotta say, I still like to think of them wrestlers :)

  25. Andi in NC says:

    That is hysterical!!!!

  26. TrixandSam says:

    *stunned into silence from the sheer brilliance*

  27. Love those lambjams ! But then I’m a city girl. I live (for the last 3 weeks before I move) in a small-ish agricultural community & those would send the the 4-H judges & all sheep people here into hysterics ! (& NOT in a good way) Too bad our fair just ended! I would have wanted to buy a sheep to show just to watch them freak out over the lambjams !

  28. Rachel of Cyberia says:

    My brother and I played wrestling a lot. A turnbuckle is what someone whips you into.

  29. Hey Gigi,
    When I lived in L.A. my hubby & I used to know Hijo Del Santo (his son) when we were involved in that business. Too bad we didn’t know you then we could have introduced you .

  30. If you wash wool, won’t it shrink? Hey, that’s not such a bad idea–I’ll get some cute lambs, wash, rinse, repeat repeatedly until I have microlambs. Don’t try to stop me.

  31. Might that be “shear” brilliance?

  32. Mmmm, pork chops! Kidding! Just kidding!

  33. MoCo represent!!!

  34. Well now I have my Halloween costume for this year.

  35. So if they’ve been washed, do they need to be careful to make sure that they don’t shrink?

  36. Nacho Lambre!

  37. :) ROFLMAO!

  38. My brother and I, too. We used to watch it Saturday mornings. He used to get carried away and pick me up and drop me on my head. Hmm, Superfly Jimmy Snuka . . . The Wild Samoans . . . Macho Man Randy Savage . . . Good times.

  39. I would like to know how they convince the lamb to wear the lambajams. It could be an interesting phenomenon should someone happen to capture it for YouTube.

  40. flutterby says:

    Hahaha,,,maybe we’ll see those hombres on Monday Night Raw !! They might even replace John Sena or that COO dude…

    just sayin’

  41. Stressfactor says:

    Don’t you mean “Lucha Lambre”?

  42. flutterby says:

    How come the timing of our posts is all wonky?? Mine ended up before all the moderation discussion….my bwain might be slightly scrambled, but still recognizes stwange stuffs!!

  43. flutterby says:

    Aaaaak…eet ‘appened again! ~~cue Twilight Zone music!!

  44. @Flutterby : What’s wrong with Triple H ? (that COO dude)
    All the trouble is

  45. ooops ! coming from that “head of talent” clown

  46. Fird Birfle says:

    ummm, do ye mebbe mean LAMB chops???? :)

    altho’ there IS a current CO post which shows lotsa potential pork chops….lil’ bebbeh pork chops ….

  47. Mary (the first) says:

    As long as you don’t toss them into the dryer, I think they’d be ok.

  48. emmberrann says:

    Lambajama-ding-dong! (Someone had to do eet.)

  49. Hey Sprock, it only shrinks if you use HOT water !

  50. emmberrann says:

    Aherm, Geek Alert: “Turnbuckles” are hardware joining two things together, frequently used in joining two metal cables together, or joining a cable to a metal fitting. There is a thingy in the middle (the buckle) that you turn to tighten the cables, hence, turnbuckle. When I was a little girl, my father had a sailboat, and when the cables on either side of the mast, being the tall thing that the sail was raised on, (the “stays”) had to be tightened for any reason, the turnbuckles would have to be adjusted by placing a screw driver into the buckle, and then the buckle would be turned appropriately. Geek alert ended. You may now resume your usual activity.

  51. Isn’t that what turtles have?

  52. Am drawing a nice hot bath right now for little lamb-ies to relax in and become microlamb-ies.

  53. And here I thought there were dressed as little sheepy ghosts for halloween!

  54. Does the CO calendar incorporate comments? I’m thinking there should be a page of “the best of 260Oakley & Co.” Y’all never cease to amaze me with your verbal gymnastics!

  55. My younger brother raised a lamb for 4-H. He named her “Lambo.” :D

  56. Threadwinner!

  57. victoreia says:

    8-O

  58. victoreia says:

    I’ll second that notion!

  59. Oh wow. That is really cool information. I shall use that at my earliest oportunity. *applause*
    LOVE the spandex lambjamas. Love the little wrestlers too.

  60. Thirded.

  61. the turnbuckle is nothing compared to the agony of the claw!

  62. Fourthed! And this photo HAS to go in! I’m a spinner, so I can appreciate the instinct to keep wool clean.

  63. Actually, you have to change the water temp and RUB. So you can pet the sheepies while you’re shrinking them.

  64. 260Oakley says:

    You guys are too kind, really. I’m not eligible for the Hunks of CO calendar, but perhaps the Pun-ks of CO…

  65. the lambies remind me of the chain mail knights in the Holy Grail! ;)

  66. Superhero sheep! Nice capes, ewe!

  67. I dunno whether to reach for teh applesawce or teh mint jelleh.

  68. “Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!” 8O

  69. “errant lambs and wolfs in sheeps clothing”…..hilarious! I’ve already got my ticket!

  70. *doffs hat to the Bard of Brilliance, the Prankster of Puns, the Consistent Commentator of Cleverness!*

  71. Albert and Flooflropolous get some sleep before the big Ku Klux Lamb meeting.

  72. I didn’t know the KKK let goats in!

  73. Six-hundred-forty-seventh’ed.

  74. WooHoo Montgomery County Fair represent!

  75. I’m sorry I alwas think sheep in those outfits look like Klan members, which is far from cute.

  76. Only use a gentle hand-wash and peg out on the line carefully. Pull back into shape gently while they’re still damp. I find it works every time.

  77. Liked it!! The best way to “de-demonise” something is to laugh at it, I find.

  78. sheep in a heap

    so, uh, what are their sweateauws made of?

  79. meeep!

  80. :shock: You might wanna check the link CTiP posted near the top before you commit to that costume:
