This lamb? This lamb right here?

This is the most amazing lamb you’ve ever seen!

One time, my kid was playing by the creek, fell in, and hit his head. That lamb somehow heard him, ran over, jumped in, and pulled him out.

And last month, a fire started in the kitchen late one night after we’d gone to bed. That lamb knocked down the door and woke us up. Saved our lives and saved the house!

No no, that’s not how he lost his legs. Lamb like that you just don’t eat all at once.


“Two legs good, four legs ba-a-a-a-d!”

Do we want to equate ‘birth defect’ with “mutation” in the common vernacular? Yes we do, we really really do.

([nasally nerd voice mode] mutation is a heritable change to the ‘germ line’ (DNA), whereas all manner of causes may produce a birth defect; e.g. Thalidomide. (“Hey! the nasally nerd voice is just your normal voice!”))

Ah there’s nothing like a good leg of lamb.
