Folks, I think you will at first glance think exactly what I did. Enjoy!
The woolly mystery known as the "sheep pig"
Not sure if my first thought is the same as yours....it was "Pigs in a Blanket".
My second thought was this:
In 168 B.C.E. or 169 B.C.E. Antiochus marched to Jerusalem, slew Jason (last of the Zadokite High Priests) and dedicated the Temple to Zeus, erecting
an image of Zeus in his own likeness on the altar, and, according to some sources, sacrificed a pig in the Temple. This is known to Jews as the
'great desecration' or 'abomination of desecration' (from Daniel 11: 31 & 12: 11)
Perhaps it was a sheep-pig, looking enough like a sheep to be smuggled in to the Temple with a bag on it's head.
Well my first thought was "Isn't this what we were just going on about?" Your first thought was much funnier! Holy crap! You alone will be haunted
by that second thought! A Sheep-pig with a bag on it's head. Oh my porcine gawd! That's historically hysterical! The poor little sheep-pig, shamed
into hiding. No wonder I had never seen one before.
Alethea, you have all of this esoteric knowledge. The guruess if you will. And so I ask you, if a sheep goes Baa
and a pig goes Oink
does a sheep-pig go Boink
? And..... while we're on the subject, if a sheep-pig goes Boink in the woods and nobody's there to shear
