with 6 comments

After saying last week that I usually concentrate on the word Angela gives us for VisDare, this week I couldn’t resist reacting to the photo.

The Great Leader (142 words)

Look at me, all you sheep down there. I made it, with not a fork spun or a glass wobbled. You too can be this dextrous and powerful. With a little application we can break through the fences, take to the roads and live fuller lives. They’ll be no more dawdling around fields, nose to tail, like a lazy stream. No more bleating when the feed lorry hasn’t visited for a few days. No more waiting for the inevitable.  – You, at the back, stop nuzzling the carpet and pay attention.  – Walking in here, admittedly through the big open door that some poor eejit had left open, is only the first step. We must plan how to make the most of this opportunity. Now my lambs, your first task is to tell me how to get down from here without breaking a leg.

    • It was such a fab photo this week. I think it demanded a humorous response. The sheep has such a sweet face after all.

  2. Haha- I like the passionate speech and the funny last line! My first thought when I saw the photo was, “What are you staring at? They told you there would be lamb for dinner!”

    • That would be a great way to start, and then for lamb to explain why s/he ended up live and on the table.
