While Shepherds Watched Their... HUH?

You will never look at shepherds the same.



NOTE for the extremely easily-offended: there is a bovinian play on a slightly naughty (not one of Carlin's Seven) word at the end.

As a Pastor, I'm going to have to think long and hard about the implications of this new teaching about shepherds on my congregation...

NoLongerBlind said...

bovinian - my first thought was "that's related to cows, not sheep!"

But, upon further reflection, (and checking in Thesaurus.com), I realized that The WordSmith
is at it again!
You're quite the clever and creative philologian, sir!

My readers keep me on my toes.

Oh, that is just Great! Thanks, Dan, I needed a good smile.

baaa-ram-ewe

To your breed, your fleece, your clan be true.

DJP said...

If I were to respond "Wolf, ram, and hart," only Libbie might nod safely in response.

Julie said...

Fred,

I too thought of 'Babe'...

Oh Dan,

Now I'll have three boys pestering me to play that over and over again all day!

Cool.

DJP said...

Oh now, Julie, don't exaggerate.

It could have been worse.

MUCH worse.

Julie said...

Oh make that stop or I'll lose what remains of my mind!

That's even worse than
hamster dance

trogdor said...

Badgers? Hamsters? They can't hold a candle to a chimpanzee riding on a Segway.

And is that an actual "Angel" reference? E. Clec. Tic.

DJP said...

Yeah. I shoulda warned somebody.

Stefan said...

How...

What...

Dave said it best.

And I think this is an illustration of how some churches operate.

But really, how on earth did they get these mini-flocks of sheep to move en masse in the right ways? How many shepherds' hands or sheepherding dogs does that take, and how much planning and practice beforehand? Wow.

Stefan said...

(Maybe my questions are answered in the video, but I watched it with the sound off.)

Julie said...

Wolf, ram and hart...

isn't that a bit like Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe?

LeeC said...

And "Babe" refrences always make me think of my favorite quote from the show. "A little pig goes a long way..." But not nearly long enough. Now I'm hungry.

Welsh shepherds and their sheepdogs are always amazing but this one is tops.

The Squirrel said...

Shepherds have fallen far. David wrote Psalms, and this is how they spend their time today?

Rita Martinez said...

WOW that was awesome!

had you not mentioned the note I would not have caught it...

NoLongerBlind said...

Hey Dan

Julie's "Hamster Dance" seems eerily familiar....

reminds me of people attempting to drive cars for some reason....

Rachael Starke said...

Now that just made me homesick, nostalgic for "woolly jumpers" and hungry, all at the same time.

Gilbert said...

After seeing this, the "Badger" and "Hamster" videos, I'm seriously starting to wonder if Dan's mind is like this box...
