Just in!!! Gay Ewes to star in new blue movie.
A North Tyneside farmer is evidently unaware of the extensive research which has been dedicated to probing the delicate matter of ovine homosexuality, and has dismissed clear evidence of his flock indulging in boy-on-boy as a simple bit of rough and tumble The rams in question, in Dudley, near Cramlington, had been marked with …
Why does anyone care unless this happens to be a new line in pron someone is considering??
I think Ricky Gervase said it better than anyone else could in his Animals show.....
Note: does that make my dog a limbosexual? or softfurnishingosexual? or anythingthatmovesrightosexual? I think domesticated animals, under what are considered unnatural conditions, tend to behave quite differently to their wild cousins....has David Attenborough even shown us a gay chimp orgy?
Let me be the first to say it.....that ewe is damn ugly, no wonder she only got a light brush of blue, probably where she was pushed out of the way.
As for the rams, we haven't been told where they were painted with blue dye. They can't have been dipped because their feet are still white. As a mating marker, the obvious place to paint them would be on their lower stomach. (Before anybody tries to say they were held upside down by their feet and dipped, note that the tops of their backs have no dye).
Since there is no 'before' picture, we have no way of telling how much blue was on originally and how much might have been transferred by ram-ram contact.
From the linked picture, they seem to have been extensively and evenly painted. I reckon some less than bright farmhand thought it was a decorating job rather than an attempt at scientific monitoring. This exercise needs to be repeated and done properly by people who have at least a clue. I'm free next week so can you forward my e-mail address and this comment to the farmer ?
The Metro paper today (I know...) didn't give a back story to this - they just said that the sheep were indulging in a spot of rough and tumble and got covered in blue dye. Written as if they bumped into a shelf with pots of dye on whilst fighting. Their website expands on this a little (@ http://tinyurl.com/447xga)
The BBC goes with this "fighting angle" too. As does the Press Association, the Mail, and the Mirror. No mention of boy on boy.
Although the statement that "around half a dozen of the flock of around 60 sheep were completely covered in blue" bolsters the one in ten theory.
Why are the news outlets so sheepish about the "truth" behind this story?
I, for one, welcome our gay, blue, cloud-like overlords.
Ok, so now you get even below Daily HateMail standards in reporting? You know that the evidence for sex is a vague blue spot on the back, so completely blue sheep is proof of lots-of-sex? Sheesh.
Go back to reporting on Emmerdale Farm as you were doing earlier this week.
Gay Sheep Romp Sex Orgy Shock Horror! story in the title
But turns out to be just plain old Sheep Having Fight, as stated in the original BBC news story.
Lester I'm so disappointed at you for trying to spice up a headline like that just to get us hooked.
Not that, like, umm, i fell for it or anything, umm, and then had to deal with the disappointment.
Still, the sight of blue sheep could be considered just a teeny bit erotic.
I may need to lie down, under my desk, for a bit, gah.
Light blue or dark blue? I've read that Russian distinguishes the two at a fundamental level. (Which may be untrue, of course. I never believe everything I read.)
And is there any history behind this? The Western use of pink, the pink triangle in particular, is a parody on the Nazi badge applied to incarcerated homosexuals, but surely there's earlier pink history behind that. Anything similar in Russia?
I'll have the blue codpiece over there, please.
Lester, is there something you're keeping from us?, maybe it's time to come out, let's be honest now this is not a first time for you is it, you are by means a virgin on the gay sheep front now, are you
Little Boy Blue come blow your horn,
The sheep's in the meadow the cow's in the corn.
But where's the boy who looks after the sheep?
He's under a haystack fast asleep.
Will you wake him? No, not I - for if I do, he's sure to cry
There's enough innuendo in that to make a dozen Carry On Shepherd movies.
That is ridiculous, those sheep have been sheep dipped or photoshopped. No way from shagging or fighting that they could be that even in blue.
When marking sheep with blue dye all you do is smudge it on its belly a bit with a stick (http://www.livestockmarkers.com/) or spray it a slightly.
I think he did a Madonna: http://blogs.orange.co.uk/celebrity/2007/11/madonna-in-shee.html
By the way, don't be fooled, rams are always being gay, as with many other livestock. Many lambs even try it on with their mums.
"I think domesticated animals, under what are considered unnatural conditions, tend to behave quite differently to their wild cousins"
Oh dear - a desperate attempt to rig the "nature vs nurture" debate?
Perhaps I should quote for you the colophon from the O'Reilly Perl Cookbook:
"Bighorn sheep are wild sheep ... Mature males usually stay apart from the females and young. In these "bachelor flocks" the lower-ranking males often play the part of ewes and behave in a submissive manner toward the dominant males. The dominant male, in turn, behaves like a courting ram and mounts the lower-ranking male. This behavior is believed to enable the rams to live together without rank disputes that might otherwise drive the lower-ranking males out of the flock."
