The bighorn sheep is a sheep with big horns. Really, zoologists? That’s the best name you could come up with? Do you have no sense of poetry or imagination? Calling it a bighorn sheep is like calling a great white shark a toothyfish, or a cheetah a kitty with spots, or a tufted titmouse, well, a tufted titmouse.
Here are several names right off the top of my head that would be way, way better than bighorn sheep:
- Shotar, The Sheep Of Awesomeness.
- Super Ram.
- Deathsheep 5000.
- Headbutts Of Doom.
- The Holy Shit, It’s Coming Right At Us! RUN!
- Bondor, God of Darkness.
- Fluffycuddles McKillyounow.
But sadly, the National Sheep Council refuses to take our calls, and they did say something about a restraining order. So, we’re stuck with the name “bighorn sheep.” Maybe we can start calling zoologists, “Unimaginative Loser-Asses.”
