It reminds me of the film "The Cut-Ups" (1967), below, by William S. Burroughs and Antony Balch. It's fun to play them simultaneously. Yes, hello. Hello.
In Australia, an animal humane society brought in a champion sheep-shearer to trim a badly overgrown sheep that was found wandering in the woods near the capital.
A bushwalker spotted the sheep near Mulligan Flats, just outside Canberra, and called the RSPCA, which mounted a rescue mission on Tuesday.
Tammy Ven Dange, the chief executive of the Australian RSPCA, said five staff members were needed for the job.
It appeared the sheep had become lost from its herd. Ven Dange said merino sheep were bred to grow wool and could suffer infections or flystrike if they were not regularly groomed.
Of the wool removed by that award-winning sheep shearer, the RSPCA rep said, ““It’s pretty disgusting. I don’t think anyone is going to want it.”

I imagine most fugitives would want to keep a low profile, but not so for Jason Stange, of Olympia, WA, who was found guilty of armed bank robbery in 2006. Rather than show up for probation, after a 117-month sentence, he was busy playing the part of a deranged Planned Parenthood doctor in the low-budget horror film, Marla Mae. Then last week, an article ran in The Olympian about the movie with lots of photos of 44-year-old Stange. Finally his days in the spotlight caught up with him. According to The News Tribune:
Brandon Roberts, the film’s producer, called Stange a talented actor who was well-liked by the cast and crew. He said the film was rewritten to suit Stange, who had “really nailed the audition” and brought a different element to the role than what the film’s creators originally sought.
Filming had just ended, and everyone was checking out the article in Friday morning’s newspaper when Stange headed out in his costume to buy cigarettes, Roberts said. Agents arrested Stange and allowed him to return the costume to the filming location.
Stange's leading role will remain in the film, which is scheduled for release in 2016. Read the rest
No big deal.
