Things That Make You Go Hmmmm...

So, they sheared 27.4 kilos of fleece off that sheep, Shrek, that hadn't been sheared in about six years. That's, apparently, enough wool to make 20-sunthin mens suits. That's alot of suits from one sheep. But, ya gotta wonder, when it comes to sheep, what did sheep do before humans figured out it would be a good and useful thing to do to shear them? There had to have been a few years, or hundred years, or so, when humans were still wearing leaves and didn't own scissors or shearers,where the sheeps pretty much had to fend for themselves. They were on their own with the whole wool thing. There must have been a whole bajillion big, wooly sheep, with tons and tons of thick, icky wool on them. That looked very uncomfortable for poor Shrek. When ya think about it, ya gotta admit that it's amazing that the sheep population didn't die out altogether. Because, really, I would imagine when the wool gets that long and thick, it makes it difficult, not only to mount your woman, but then to get through the wool to do "the deed", if you could manage to climb on and get a hold. It couldn't have been easy. Maybe sheep were smart enough to somehow figure out that they needed to sorta "clear the runway" as it were, and they ripped out, or somehow removed the wool from the vital areas. Guess we'll never know..just another one of those things that make you go hmmmm...
