DULUTH, MN—Sheep is kicking himself after letting Wolf smooth talk him into loaning an article of clothing to wear to the Duluth International Conference Concerning Highway Engineering And Design, or DICCHEAD for short. After plying Sheep with frou-frou drinks and a steady stream of reassurances, Sheep agreed to loan Wolf his favorite black wool sweater-vest. Cries of “What the f–-k?!” could be heard later as Sheep removed the tattered remains of the dry-clean-only vest from the hamper. “Baa, I don’t know what I was thinking,” said Sheep. “I’m an idiot.”

The black wool sweater-vest was given to Sheep as a graduation gift from his parents. He was the son of efficient wool producers, whose daily yield was three bags full. Try as he did, Sheep could never live up to their example. “My parents never thought I’d amount to much,” he explains. “I’m kind of the black sheep of my family, baa.” He left the family business in search of an education. After five long years, he received a BS in the study of synthetic polymers. “Maa and Paa were just so proud.”

Wolf could not be found to explain how the black wool sweater-vest has been marked by four congruous tears at the collar, and several unidentified stains. “Baa, what is this, ketchup? To-baa-sco sauce?” asked Sheep. “Oh and it smells baa-ad. Is that smoke? Did he wear this to a baa-ar? I’ll never loan him another thing. No matter how convincing he appears, I can never trust Wolf in my clothing.”

    Delightfully brilliant (in sheep’s words – “Not Baad!”)
