Run Boy, RUN!!!!

My SIL told me a funny story the other day that I just HAD to share with you all. It was another one of my “I am SO blogging THIS!” moments. It’s almost as good as the hamster and lizard stories.

Almost. Well, I’ll let you be the judge, hmmm?

My SIL was driving the other day and about two cars in front of her she sees this beat up old car being driven by the equivalent of a local redneck with a big fat LIVE SHEEP in the trunk with the lid open, but tied sort of down (the lid, not the sheep) with a bit of rope. We assume this poor little sheep was on his way to be either someone’s dinner for Ramadan.

As if the sight of the sheep hanging from the trunk wasn’t amusing enough? What happened next had me in stitches.

Well, as will usually happen here, due to the SHITTY infrastructure, traffic ground to a stop for one reason or another. Sheep car and SIL were stopped next to a huge dirt lot. I guess the sheep figured it was now or never. As my bemused SIL watched, the sheep made a break for it. It hopped right out of the car and took off up on the sidewalk and into the dirt lot. Said “redneck” noticed (my SIL is screaming with laughter by this point) and decided to give chase. Did he hop out of the car and chase him? Hell no. Of course not!

He jumped the car UP on the pavement and proceeded to chase it IN THE CAR in circles, in the dirt lot, with the sheep hauling ass cause, naturally, it was terrified of a CAR coming at it and was running it’s little ass off. Stupid dude could have probably caught the damn sheep if he had gotten out of the car, but NOOOOOOO, he kept chasing it in the car and sending up great clouds of dirt. It remains to be seen that the damn sheep is highly intelligent in the first place for making a run for his life at the first available opportunity. Well, infinitely smarter than the dumbass that was planning on eating it for dinner at any rate!

Now what you are dying to know is….. did he ever get the sheep or not?

What the hell do YOU think?


Of course not.

What a funny story! But what's funnier is imagining YOU laughing at it! You have a laugh that makes everyone around you happy!!! xoxoxox!

Oh my! Can a comment possibly get any sweeter than Catrina's comment above? I don't know. Catrina is one of the few on the blog that actually knows me 'in the flesh'. We've known each other since.... well.... early teens, so, quite a while. We even worked together when we were older..... HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! (A.H. customer, and my special "Cutting technique" for the pies!!!!!!)

Thank you sweetheart!

That is one great thing about Bahrain. You see weird crap like this... and worse all the time.

I didn't tell y'all about the donkey carts on the highway yet. I'm saving it.

Yes, I said DONKEY CARTS. (Yousif, stop LAUGHING!)

"Donkey carts"?
It doesn't have anything to do with the story I told on Mindy's blog while she was away, does it?
