Just how stupid can you be.......

when do you admit you made a mistake...but dont tell anyone? if nobody saw it it didnt happen. write it off and move on with your life. nobody likes it when everyone knows you screwed up. thake the japanese for example.......
seems that in japan a poodle goes for big bucks. i'm talking 4k and up. those japanese really like western things and what is more western than a poodle. well it seems thousands of Japanese have been swindled in a scam in which they were sold Australian and British sheep and told they were poodles. thats right kids...sheep. Flocks of sheep were imported to Japan and then sold by a company called Poodles as Pets, marketed as fashionable accessories, available at $1,600 each.
everyone likes a bargain.
now the question is how was this discovered. 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. ok, anyone can make a mistake. we all know, from our own homegrown movie stars , that they arent rocket scientists (hell, most of them are scientologists). but alas, then hundreds of other women got in touch with police to say they feared their new "poodle" was also a sheep. One couple said they became suspicious when they took their "dog" to have its claws trimmed and were told it had hooves. well, that would give it away.....well, that and the fact that it went baaaaaaa.
can you imagine if this happened here in america. we would be making fun of these people forever. this is comedy at its finest.

well unlike doctors these people can eat their mistakes.

ok, back to work kids. this is shoes...over and out....

This story is an urban legend, and not at all true.
