Fashion sheep
Thousands of Japanese have been swindled in a scam in which they were sold Australian and British sheep and told they were poodles.

See, if the people who bought them had more aplomb they'd just declare that the sheep were the latest 'it' pet. ;-)

I picked this up from cdaae.

Yeah, I saw that, too.

I bet after the victims found out, they felt really sheepish.

Or at least their pets did.

They should have just called them "exotic Australian Poodles".

As per Snopes it appears not to be true.

Ah, I figured as much, it was too good to be true. Looks like they just covered this one.
