A Real Sleeper
Once upon a time a sheep rancher sold special sheep exclusively to insomniacs.
Instead of counting sheep, these sheep hummed their owners to sleep. Humming is very peaceful.
One sheep though would “Bah” instead of hum.
This really got the rancher’s goat (ha!).
The rancher named him Bug. You know why.
The rancher yelled, “Hum, Bug!”
But Bug would only “Bah” back, black sheep that he was.
The rancher couldn’t sleep, and long after the moon stood high in the midnight sky, he’d shout:
“Don’t Bah! Hum, Bug!
His business might have gone bankrupt except that he sold Bug to a narcoleptic.
