    Wow a chuckle for Ziggy, I don’t know when was the last if ever.

    New Yorker was almost a CIDU, at first I thought the farmer had a lamb crammed inside his pocket, maybe a last look at baby before going off to slaughter?

    The Ziggy reminds me: my late wife flew to California for a cousin’s wedding about a week after 9/11. The plane was pretty empty. Some of the flight attendants had gotten pink slips and that was their last flight.

    Rasheed, would you share that correct / funny reading of the sheep one please? I haven’t arrived there yet.

    Sorry - I’m not sure I understand the the Ziggy is a CIDU for me. Is the joke that the psychics all predicted the plane would crash, and the joke is that Ziggy is going to die?

    That may be the first time I laughed out load at Ziggy.

    The sheep are shown their haircuts, er, woolcuts, to see if they’re satisfied.
    Yes. the psychics foresaw disaster. They’re comic strip psychics; they can do that.

    ” Is the joke that the psychics all predicted the plane would crash, and the joke is that Ziggy is going to die?”

    Morbid much?

    No, it’s just that this plane will develop mechanical difficulties, have to divert to land in Podunk, and all the travelers will be stuck there for two days while the plane is repaired. The psychics just didn’t want to miss the exciting kickoff speech at their convention… it’s going to be AWESOME!

    If the plane was going to crash, shouldn’t those psychics have been able to tell and reschedule long before the “last moment”? At least one of them?
    I think this is a variant of “annual convention for the clairvoyant has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.”

    Re Tundra, it would be more appropriate if the crows were carrying matches and torches. Clubs and a crowbar (even if aptly named) wouldn’t be very scary to a sack of hay with clothes on.

    Rasheed, to be more specific, the farmer (rancher? sheep-guy?) is holding a mirror to show the sheep their new look. I also thought he had a sheep under his arm at first.
    I understand the crow and scarecrow one, but it doesn’t make sense to me. I guess the joke is that the crows are not afraid of him as long as they are on their own turf, and boy, is he about to get it from them as payback for keeping them out of the cornfield. Unless they are goons that the fraidy-crows have hired to take care of the scarecrow. I agree with Soup Dragon that the clubs, etc. aren’t going to hurt the scarecrow, but fire certainly would. The crowbar is funny, and I suppose it would break the stick that is usually up the scarecrows, shall we say back.

    Ziggy - cue minor key in the pit of the stomach.

    Strangely, we saw a sheep being shared just this past Friday - late in the season. Four sheep were held back from the spring shearing for demonstration at the festival we went to.

    Meryl A - Yes, a sheep being shared would be strange to see. :-)

    :-) Sheared of course. I did flunk typing in junior high as well as having a problem with seplling (sic) in school. Or as Robert wrote in the margin when hand corrected the version of to, two too he had used - that is why a wife is better than spellcheck - and I don’t have a wife.
