4/14/2006: Sheep advertising

That's just Baaaaaaaaa-d

OK. So they are getting some exposure here on the Cellar and maybe elsewhere on the internet for now. But once this coverage dies down, how many people are really going to see these ads? It's got to cost at least $10 or so for each of those blankets. I bet it's even more. Are these blankets for sheep along the edge of a highway? You won't be able to see them as you speed by. Maybe for some sort of petting zoo? I just don't see how this advertising could be worth it.

They need to do this with some of those fainting sheep, so the advertising can be seen from the air!

The one in the front is trying to get noticed harder than the others. Hell, he's STREAKING.

I guess it is true. Putting on some clothes is sexier than going naked.

They look like they've just been shorn. I'd guess they will only wear them a little while.... keep them warm until they get adjusted to the crew-cut.

I can't decide whether their mouthes look like a t-heinie or a cameltoe.

Is that because they both arouse you?

Blankets can serve purpose on lambs besides keeping them warm. They also can keep most of the fleece clean which makes the fleece more valuable. They also can help to keep the meat in a meat lamb in better shape.

Here in America, we do not dress our sheep (unless you count the little paper booties on the rack of lamb). There is a lot I do not understand about other cultures.

It almost makes them to cute and cudly to kill and eat.

Actually, it is pretty common to put jackets on sheep to keep dirt and plants out of the wool. This makes the wool more valuable for spinning, since less effort has to be made to clean the wool.

Did you know that one of the original "uses" for the standard poodle was to shave/ carve advertisements into their fur?

I'll have to borrow the book from my sister. There were some old black & white photos where they had a bunch of black standard poodles with ads shaved into their fur. I'll see if she still has it, and I will scan the pics in.

Some officials have gotten hot about the subject:

Is the issue free speech or money talks?
