Break out the chlorine! ....

.... because the gene pool needs some cleaning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy c-o-w, people!!!! Did anyone else read the story titled "Japanese swindled by sheep sold as poodle"???

As if the headline isn't unbelievable enough, the article states that up to TWO THOUSAND people may have fallen for this scam!

Apparently the scam came to light when a Japanese film star went on a daytime talk show and "wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food." HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Apparently, she was "crestfallen when told it was a sheep. " (*slaps knee in merriment!!!!*)

But WAIT ... there's more!

Another couple said they became "suspicious" when they took their "dog" to the groomers to trip its toenails only to be told that it had hooves!!!!

OMG! I can't stop laughing!!!

I mean, if the buyers couldn't tell by looks alone, did they not clue in when when their "poodle" went "baaaa" when they told it to "speak"!?!

These Japanese are obviously not knitters!!!!!! :)
