Do knit keep –
Wool be said –
Baa gain that
You thus choose,
Is a fat
Lot of ewes

😀 Should I ever own sheep I will keep this sage advice in mind, Col.
I do like to share my profound wisdom … 🙂
Funny, fat, female…fluff balls. 🙂
Another one to cotton on? 🙂
A good laugh 😀
You saw it! Yay!
I like the sound of that – they serve drinks there!
Just like Michelle I’ll also pretend to understand Col. You got me here too. 😀
Oh dear. I was proud of that one. I need to examine it to see what made it incomprehensible.
Your shear determination to keep us sheep-shape is ewe-inspiring! 😉 Baaa!
What is with the cutting response? 🙂
Ah, you saw right through me! 🙂
I’ll pretend I understand 😉
A translation appears below!
A safe response, whether or not it made any sense to you! 🙂
Great fun. Your “really awful” posts are a must-read for me.
Kind of you. At least the agony was over quickly with this one!
Hehehe glad you explained that one. The sheep pic is adorable – you get bonus likes for that
Thanks – divinely ovine? 🙂
Sorry Col… you lost me on this one…
Oh dear. Eggs planed in comment below.
*worried* You do get it really, don’t you – or is it one of these things that turns into gibberish when it crosses the Atlantic?
It’s got a nice beat, and the sheep are cute, but I really don’t get it. Maybe the wool between my ears is too dense today? Or maybe I’m on the wrong side of the Atlantic.
OK – the first stanza is an injunction not to keep female sheep overfed.
Then the second one has the double meaning of the gain of the Baa (in weight) as a bargain, as being a fat lot of use – which is no use whatsoever in colloquial speech.
Glad you’re not pulling the wool over my eyes ~> ewe R the best!
Celi would enjoy this . . . since she has sheep and she started out “down under.” 😀
Allrighty then 😉
You will starve them in future, right!
