~~~ Ewephemisms ~~~



"Sheep Successfully Cloned by Researchers in Scotland!" This recent news that has filled the airwaves of late, prompted my brother to write to me. My brother said, "....reminds me of that old George Jones and Tammy Wynette song, 'Will I still be Lovin' Ewe'? What if two old ewes meet two new ewes? Will they be the same old ewe?" In response, I sent him the items listed below. In response to this list, my brother wrote to me again to relate a conversation he'd had with his wife, to wit: My brother's wife said, "I can understand why he came up with all of those questions, he works at a eweniversity." To which my brother replied, "Yes; I should have known that, especially since I'm a Professor Emeweritus." Hahahahahahaha! I replied that I expected those scientists were feeling pretty sheepish, what with all of the hoopla that had occurred, and that strangely, I had herd the newes from a report on Baaaahrain.

Anyway..... here is a list of comments concerning news of the cloned sheep....
