Being a native of New Zealand I thought I could offer some unique insight into the wonderful creature that is the sheep. Here are some interesting facts I'm sure that most of you already knew:

The first sheep landed in New Zealand with Captain Cook in 1773.

New Zealand's sheep population peaked at 73.3 million in 1982, this has now receeded to an amount around the 43 million mark (representing about 12 per person at this point).

The most common breed of sheep in New Zealand is the Romney, this is mainly because of it's ability to supply high quality meat & wool.

The One Tree Hill, sung about in U2's famous song is inhabited by several thousand sheep.

Grasslands in New Zealand have developed to the point where they can carry 25 sheep per hectare... impressive huh.

Have you heard the news?
The dogs are dead!
You better stay home
And do as you're told.
Get out of the road if you want to grow old.

Am I the only one who finds the sexualization of animals to be slightly disturbing.

I'd like to think I have a good sense of humor and the absurd, but this is just beyond that range for me.

Remember that old Blackadder episode when Lord Melchett and Blackadder are captured by the evil German prince?

Yeah, I thought not.
