Most people don't care. Most people won't fight.

It is official: Moonbats are against sheepdogs.

Sheepdogs herding a flock may be a familiar farmyard scene, but it could soon be confined to the past if bosses at Tesco have their way. The supermarket chain has told its major supplier of lamb to stop using dogs, which it claims cause stress to the animals. It means shepherds at the farm may need to use methods such as beating the ground with sticks and waving their arms to control the flock.

A point of existential importance: This is exactly why the left opposes the military, the police and parental discipline.

This goes beyond self-parody. There should be a long German word describing a group's tendency to stumble into what had previously been a metaphor.

There's a medium sized German word for it. It's "ausgestorben".

But are they sure? I mean, did they stress test the sheep? And what will the dogs do for a living now? Will retraining be available?
