Little Lamb – Counting Sheep #8

Happy and healthy Easter to those that celebrate! Happy and healthy day to those that don’t!

It’s been a while since I did a sheep in my handmade Mary Roff sketchbook. I decided I wanted something of an abstract look to it, but still cute … so this is what I came up with.

So do any of you remember this old Mary had a Little Lamb alternative? I always liked it more than the original. I think it’s unknown provenance. At any rate, I don’t know who wrote, but (s)he had my sense of humor.

Mary had a little lamb,
A lobster and some prunes,
A glass of milk, a piece of pie,
And then some macaroons;
It made the naughty waiters grin
To see her order so,
And when they carried Mary out,
Her face was white as snow.

Remember this at your next feast!

  1. I can hardly get beyond laughing at the nursery rhyme turned naughty to tell you how much I like your mortified sheep. Happy Easter to you. (We’re still observing Passover here.)

  2. This lamb is wonderful! Oh he made me smile. Nothing like a baby lamb. I had not heard this version of Mary Had A Little Lamb…….too funny. I think? ;P LOLOLOL
