Beware of Sheep in Poodle's Clothing

Many of you may have heard of the scandal concerning sheep being marketed as poodles to Japanese people. If you haven't heard of it, here is the link.

Now that you've heard of it, here's my thoughts on the matter. Japan gave us the joys of Sushi Bars, Astro Boy and of course, Iron Chef. These great achievements of civilization have all been reached by the people of the Rising Sun.

And when I heard perfectly intelligent people had been swindled, just because they had never seen a Sheep before in their lives (remember, in Japan, sheep are very rare). Similar things have occurred with EBay in relation to new gaming consoles. Before you laugh at the Japanese for mistaking sheep for poodles, think of how easily you too might be fooled into buying something that isn't the genuine article because you've never seen such a thing before.
