Dearest Shakey-Water-Off-Stuff-Ologists,

As a sheepy I of course luff to shake water off stuff. It’s all I think about. From the moment I awake to the time I fall asleep, shaking water off stuff monopolises every waking moment.

Look, here I am shaking water off a shaver



Me Shaking Water Off A Shaver Earlier Today

Nice eh ?

So, ewe can imagine my surprise when after the first vigorous shake there was still water adorning my shavers’ end. It took a few more vigorous shakes for the shaver to be water free !!

Why’s that then ?

Why didn’t all the water drops come off after the first shake ? What kept some drops hanging on ?


I didn’t shake any harder on the 2nd 3rd or 4th shake !!

As a firm believer in empirical study I have spent all day observing water drops being shaken off various stuff from an egg to a cat and the results are the same as above !!...amazing eh ?.....incredible !!


If ewe can help me know this then I will then know it....which is nice !


Thank ewe for your kind consideration in this matter

Biggest drops go first, and with the following shakes the smaller ones get jostled and join together to make bigger ones, which then can be shaken off.

As a sheepy do you also perchance graze on magic mushrooms?  I have seen the look in sheepies eyes when they have been munching on them and I cannot think of any other reason other then pleasure for them doing this.  Maybe as a sheepy you could explain this for me?

As for your shaver, maybe as a sheepy this would normally be a pair of clippers and is not something I would guess that a sheepy would like very much?

Did you really spend all day investigating how water falls off your shaver?

Is a sheepy the same thing as a sheeple?  Thanks for comments.  Joe L. Ogan

I really think it is best that this thread is locked down before Sheepy realises that he has become the prototype for spamming net-bots.   One sheep is perfect for a forum and it is generally agreed that it adds to the overall tone; but two twin sheep are just too much and not the done thing at all.  Or we could always cultivate the new sheep for a season and plan an autumn barbecue …
