Thieves Steal 14-ft Inflatable Sheep [Hooked on Ewe!]
DavesDaily.com ^ | 07/17/06 | Dave

Posted on 07/19/2006 10:38:27 AM PDT by Froufrou

America's Mattress co-owner Jim Sather is left puzzled after a rustler stole Serta Mattresses' inflatable 14-foot sheep from their store here.

"I can't figure out what someone would do with a 14-foot sheep," Sather said. "It can't go in your basement and if it's in your back yard, your neighbor will notice. If it's target practice, it only lasts once."

All the thief or thieves left was a handwritten note at the scene of the crime that read: "For the sheep, bring peace to the earth."

Sather said their mascot is missed.

"He's the granddaddy of all sheep and there's a whole flock that will miss him," Sather said.

The sheep is labeled with a No. 1 and is worth an estimated $3,500.

We had a waterpark here whose mascot, a 20 foot tall inflatable gorilla, was stolen a few years back. I think they got it back eventually........

For my mom's 50th birthday party we were having an off color celebration. My friend and I went to the adult bookstore (we were rookies) and asked if they had any inflatable men. Dumb and Dumber, who were working the register, replied that they were all out of inflatable men but they had some inflatable sheep.

My friend ran from the store laughing hysterically. I was left to respond that no, I didn't want them to order me the man. Apparently this was the granddaddy of those little inflatable guys!

Only ewe can make this world seem right
Only ewe can make the darkness bright
Only ewe and ewe alone
can thrill me like ewe do
and fill my heart with love for only ewe

Only ewe can make this change in me
for it's true, ewe are my destiny
When ewe hold my hand
understand the magic that ewe do

Ewe're my dream come true
my one and only ewe

Only ewe can make this change in me
for it's true, ewe are my destiny
When ewe hold my hand
I understand the magic that ewe do

Ewe're my dream come true
my one and only ewe

One and only ewe

Dirty deeds (done with sheep)

If you're havin' trouble with your barnyard friends
You got a thing for ewes
Been countin' sheep, but you're not in bed
Here's what you gotta do

Get off the farm, stay outta the barn
Go read a nursery rhyme
Don't ring 976-BAAA, that kind of love's a crime

Dirty Deeds Done with Sheep
Dirty Deeds Done with Sheep
Dirty Deeds Little Bo Peep
Dirty deeds and they're done with sheep
Dirty deeds and they're done with sheep

My friend Larry has a little lamb
Her fleece is white as snow
He keeps braggin' 'bout her night and day
Someone should tell him NO.

Look at the flock, they're all in shock
Here comes that mutton fan
Knock off the fleece, give them some peace
Don't be a barndoor man, no.


Dirty Deeds Done With Sheep
Dirty Deeds Little Bo Peep
Dirty Deeds Done With Sheep
Dirty Deeds and they're done with sheep
Dirty Deeds and they're done with sheep

Velcro gloves, kneepads, late night dates
Done with sheep
Warning signs, electric fences, high voltage
Done with sheep

Dirty Deeds, don't tell them what I done to you!
Done with sheep
Dirty deeds, Dirty deeds!
Dirty deeds done with sheep --Baaaaa!
(Quiet gals, I think the shepard's comin')

She got the name Dolly because she was cloned from breast cells. You can guess which Dolly they meant.

You know the difference between Mick Jagger and a Scotsman?

Mick Jagger said "Hey, You, Get Off of my Cloud!", and a Scotsman says "Hey, McLeod, get off of my ewe!"

There's so many things I find wonderful about this article, I don't know where to begin.

These clowns are my new heroes. Reminds me of when my friends and I stole the lower leg off the Viking statue out front of Jensen Beach elementary school (back in 1985).

What were we thinking? The statue's lower right leg had rusted at the knee and come loose from its base at the foot, so all we needed to do was pry it away from the body with little effort--then bungee cord it to the roof of my friend's Pinto. It would have been a flawless prank--but we probably shouldn't have done it mid-day, though... at least that's what the state trooper said.

It was a magnificent trophy, though--almost like the lamp in Christmas story, only with painted on leg hair and a strappy man-sandal.
