We raise chickens (my mom says that makes me a chicken tender!) and I have met people who actually think that chickens only lay white eggs, and that our multi-colored eggs are weird. I've also met people who thought that chocolate milk came from brown cows (okay, those people are mostly children) but it turns out that many people are even gullible about sheep. A Scottish farmer has been pranking tourists, telling them that his sheep grow Tartan wool, and completing the joke with marking spray!
I love stories like this because it's just so fun, and hopefully the people getting pranked enjoy it, too. It's like something we might do in GISHWHES. I have to say that if I had sheep I'd be tempted to do the same thing.
