This is an actual thread that took place on the bulletin board for the town where I live:

DW August 27 at 8:53pm: We have loose sheep in the area of Shaw's. I have no permit's in this area so if someone knows where they belong send the owner up there.

LJL: If there were ever awards on this page for favorite threads, this would get my vote, LOL. Much appreciated humor. On a serious note, after someone nearly Tboning me at Eliot/126/earlier (due to cell phone stuck in her ear and seeming unawareness she was in an intersection) I am really happy none of the sheep got hit.
