City’s Sheepish Idea

Sep 30, 2013

Sheep and goats to mow Detroit instead of lawnmowers? One councilman with nothing better to do wants to replace city mowing crews with munching herds.

One of his consultants said, “They’ve been very good employees. They don’t talk back.”

There might be one use for this hare-brained idea. A lot of people are homeless and hungry in Detroit. Sheep and goat taste good if you cook them right.

Which is more than you can say about councilmen!
