I never thought of doing that. Do you think Neil will come around to my house every night and continually jump over a small fence until I fall asleep?

I personally like the Ernie and Bert sketch where Ernie counts sheep to go to sleep but Bert can hear them bleeting and it keeps him awake so he asks Ernie to count something else. Instead of counting something quiet he counts fire engines. HEHEHEHE! You had to be there!

Looking at some of the forum members pictures, i am reminded of the phrase 'mutton dressed as lamb'. Does that count?

There is also on this forum one Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma cornutum sp) - known as a horny toad colloquially and because of their name (Phrynosomatidae - the family to which these critters belong) means "toad bodied," as well as my esteemed college Castor fiber - the good Doctor Beaver.

As Point of Information, the largest beaver ever, the Giant beaver (Castoroides ohioensis), lived in Texas (as well as other areas) as part of the Blancoan Faunal assemblage of the last glacial period.

Don't we count as much as the mutton-brained ones?

I'd never count lizards as they can't jump over fences and as for Beavers they are more likely to eat the fence.

Such stereotyping! A T. Rex lizard could jump fences and Castors can do amazing things for you as you try to sleep. Tell her Dr.
