Crazy sh*t.
"Let me tell you the truth. The truth is, 'what is'. And 'what should be' is a fantasy, a terrible terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago. The 'what should be' never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no 'what should be,' there is only what is." - Lenny Bruce

"Satan goes to church, did you know that?" - Godsands

"And Genisis 1 does match modern science... you just have to try really hard." - GR33K FR33K5

Gotta be a hoax, or at least I hope so.

That has to be a hoax - there is no possible way this could have occurred. It wouldn't work out too well with the sheep's body anyways.

"A goat from Zimbabwe gave birth to a similar youngster in September 2009. The mutant baby born with a human-like head stayed alive for several hours until the frightened village residents killed him."

It's possible. The Turks and Zimbabweans have one thing common, they're pretty religious, so they would immediatley kill the sheep.

Turks are remarkably secular in a lot of cases, but that isn't the point.

Biologically speaking, I don't see how this is possible. The structure of a human head simply couldn't fit on a horizontally-built sheep body. You'd have to change quite a lot in order for it to work.

Plus, that mouth looks extremely fake. The lips shouldn't be so formed still, let alone in he shape of a smile. They either did a crappy job of burning this sheep, or its very fake.

A similar incident happened in Zimbabwe. There are probably hundreds of factors that could cause this. Y don't think it's a hoax at any rate,

What possible factors could have this occur? Humans and sheep are from completely different gene pools, let alone simians overall. There is no mutation possible that could account for this, natural or artificial, and the fact that it came out of two under-developed countries and hasn't been noted at all in more industrialized countries points to some funny business going on.

The human brain is designed to see human faces and recognise them in obscure and poorly constructed properties. It's not a 'human face' but it contains enough triggers for the brain to recognise features of one.

My feeling is that this is simply an organic morass that as puck but it is merely 'interpreted' to be a human face.

Or maybe at a certain stage in the sheeps foetal development it looks superficially like a human face, just as observation showed the human foetus passing through various animal stages when in reality it didn't really.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Well there are human faced carp, so I could see a human faced sheep ... though it obviously wouldn't be due to interbreeding.

I saw the title and though someone found my third cousin twice removed ... he owes me money. I guess his "kid" (groan) is gonna pay up now either. Thanks for the false hope DDO.
