Lamb with human face born in Turkey

Do you know this expression?

When a man is a man and sheeps are scared

Here is why:

Lamb with Human Face born in Turkey


Quote:
The lamb’s head had human features on – the eyes, the nose and the mouth – only the ears were those of a sheep.
Quote:
The governor of the province where the ugly goat was born said that the little goat was the fruit of unnatural relationship between the female goat and a man.
We do have a lot of funny stories about the guys in the army having fun with the sheeps, donkeys and street dogs. But it remains as being funny, not being truth! (I mean, you don't even want to think about it being true).


When you get the facts straight in your face, it is embarrassing!

Re: Lamb with human face born in Turkey

it's really disturbing.

It makes me thing to another picture of a strange dead animal, but I think it was in India.

Judging by the lack of any quality news or science sites reporting this, I would say it was a hoax.

Re: Lamb with human face born in Turkey

How does a Turkish farmer find a sheep in long grass?
Satisfying.

The sheep jokes are pretty international... Why do you think they hide in trees in Morocco? And in Turkey, all the sheeps joke are about greeks.

I hear them all the time over here about the New Zealanders:
What do you call a sheep tied to a lampost in Wellington/Swansea/Ankara/Add as appropriate?
A community centre.

Re: Lamb with human face born in Turkey

I ewesually get all my hot newes from the Wool Street Journal... there was a recent report in it about an Aussie sitting his driving test, and when the examiner asked "Can you make a U-turn?", he replied "Make her turn? I could make her eyes water!"

Re: Lamb with human face born in Turkey

That story (and picture) reminded me of the "monkey faced pig" in China.




Whether the story that Nil linked is true or a hoax (I've not read all the dubious looking links with the story ) or not I dunno but the pig is real.

Here's another one, with the fantastic line, "It’s the first time that my goat did this".
