It is a good thing Maa Bell is a thing of the past. Otherwise it would change its nickname to Baa Bell!

Very clever! And funny, too. Glad I got here through stumble. Never thought a sheep's head looks exactly like a phone. Thanks.

At first we thought that they must be Kiwi (New Zealand) sheep.

Posted by: Judy | Jun 12, 2008 7:36:22 PM

wow greAT effort...!

Posted by: chaitu | Jun 12, 2008 5:51:55 AM

Posted by: SERENA | Jun 10, 2008 9:47:32 PM

i didn't want to be inspired but this did it anyways.. wrote a poem about it.. or the poem came out to see the sheep. either way.. i call it "ya herd?"

There is not much to say. I guess the best word for these things that made me laugh for the last 8 minutes is: AWESOME. Good job, well done, I'm impressed... ;) You'd better keep on doing things like that.

Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was "can you hear me now"?

Posted by: Antiques | Jun 4, 2008 5:50:19 PM

These phones.... These PHONES ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY!

Posted by: Erich Nathan | Jun 4, 2008 1:18:19 PM

HA Ha...mahhhhh

Posted by: Marisa | Jun 4, 2008 11:51:20 AM

Oh my....I love this. We sell sheep and want to make a display sheep by the highway...what a super idea, but it would be hard to make these. So realistic though. I love the creativity...super.

Posted by: giantgiantgiant | May 24, 2008 6:27:53 PM

sheep with telephones, that is what we all are, sheep with mobile telephones on our heads. nice touch with the '60 phone, a little too deep for the sheep heads. good luck...

I'd rather count these when I can't sleep. Clever idea.

Posted by: Semy | May 16, 2008 8:36:01 PM

Do cell phones dream of telephonic sheep?

Posted by: dizit | May 16, 2008 7:42:05 PM

They Remind me of Edward Gorey drawings. Very clever!

Posted by: Liz | May 16, 2008 11:51:59 AM

As a telecom engineer all I can say I "AWESOME!". I'll be printing these out and plastering them on my cube walls.

oh and Lalla Mira, a VOIP sheep would look very similar but it would be patchy, distorted and it probably showed up late for the photo

Posted by: TelecomManColey | May 16, 2008 11:18:01 AM

Those are awesome! I've been wanting to do the same thing in topiary outside on the lawn of our farmhouse. I'm inspired.

Explanes all then strange phone calls I get: phone rings, I pick it and no-one seems to be on the other end!

Posted by: Mallard | May 15, 2008 5:02:03 AM
