sheep races

last weekend i was in moffat, scotland visiting a friend and watching sheep races. yes, indeed. they raced clueless and stupid sheep from one end of the main street to the other with stuffed jockey dolls velcro-ed onto the backs of each sheep. people were cheering, putting down bets and a lot of sheep themed mayhem ensued (mostly in the form of a mechanical sheep-bull, and an inflatable bouncy castle for kids). cruel and unusual? you be the judge. it was ke-ray-zee scottish antics. you want to watch a video of the racing sheep, don't you? of course you do.
