        Absolutely.  Without sheep, the shepherds would have nothing to shear, 
and no one to sell to, i.e., no transfer of wealth.  Actually, if there's a 
religion, it's money.  We worship the stuff, can't get enough of it, bow down 
before those who have it, measure everything and everyone against it.  Imagine 
if sheep stopped worshiping money...

                  Which leaves out just about everybody.  It's the sheep that 
make the world go round.  


                 



          <SARCASM>  It's the shepherds and the wolves. The sheep are there to 
be shorn and turned into lamb chops.
