From the You Gotta Be Shitting Me file

Thousands of Japanese have been swindled in a scam in which they were sold Australian and British sheep and told they were poodles.

Some highlights from the article (Highlights which or may not have made me piss my pants a little.):

“The scam was uncovered when Japanese moviestar Maiko Kawamaki went on a talk-show and wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food.”

HAHAHAHAHA! (ahem. sorry.)

” One couple said they became suspicious when they took their “dog” to have its claws trimmed and were told it had hooves.”

OMG. I wonder if the poor groomer had to paint its hooves and put bows in its ears.

Y’all, they were charging $1600.00 apiece for the sheeples, and these poor people thought they were getting a bargain because the going rate for a poodle in Japan is twice that amount.

Please don’t let my use of the word ”poor” in the previous sentence fool you into thinking I feel sorry for these people. If you’re willing to hand over that much money for something and haven’t gone to the trouble of doing enough research to be able to tell a sheep from a fucking poodle, you deserve what you get.

In other news, I won’t be around much for the next few months. I’ll be doing some traveling. Gonna make a quick run through Scotland to pick up some..uh..wool (wink) and then it’s off to sunny Japan!

    Japan’s hasn’t been right in the head since WWII. I think the whole nation got a collective concussion.

    I’ll be sure to point this out to the next person who talks about how much smarter and better educated kids in other countries are, though.
