Stupider Than An American - Almost
My lovely sister sent this to me today.
Thousands of Japanese have been swindled in a scam in which they were sold Australian and British sheep and told they were poodles.
Let's just say, for argument's sake, that you have no clue what a sheep looks like. How do you not know what a dog is supposed to look like? And that it doesn't have hooves?!
I say "almost" because i think the stupid things we've done and believed over time has accumulated and far surpasses even this idiocy. Let's not forget the cashier who accepted a $200 bill with Bush's face on it. Or, WMD. Now, that's a good one.

The scam was uncovered when Japanese moviestar Maiko Kawamaki went on a talk-show and wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food.
She was crestfallen when told it was a sheep.
Oh god, its starting to hurt....
wonder if any of the sheep have a black star on their back.
those would be huge sellers in japan.
In case you were wondering:
"Watashi no inu wa tabenaishi, kawaunai."
or in English:
"My dog will not bark or eat."
not so much with the true
we suspected that to be the case.
It was all just a baaaaa-d case of mistaken identity.
