Classic from my dad - sheep have legs shorter on the left hand side of their body than their right so that they can walk round on hills...


He really believed it too!

'two wrongs don't make a right'

<Ok this one is true - but completely negates the revenge/satisfaction factor>

Actually - the sheep thing is almost right. There is a breed of sheep with shorter front legs than back (or maybe Vicky Verky) - bred especially in hilly climes. Something to do with them being able to eat grass more easily :)
