This one is actually so meta I love it: anthropomorphous Dall sheep critical of an anthropomorphic term. "Sheeple," along with "snowflake," is pretty much a red flag that whatever troll is using such a lameass insult isn't seriously worth listening to anyways.

This is yet another concept for which I apparently lost track of the original doodle - stumbled across it only just in time for this posting. In retrospect it's interesting to see how the revamped version compares, and if it is an improvement made better with the benefit if hindsight. Like maybe even actually drawing Dall sheep horns correctly.

“Pity the nation whose people are sheep,
and whose shepherds mislead them.
Pity the nation whose leaders are liars, whose sages are silenced,
and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.
Pity the nation that raises not its voice,
except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero
and aims to rule the world with force and by torture.
Pity the nation that knows no other language but its own
and no other culture but its own.
Pity the nation whose breath is money
and sleeps the sleep of the too well fed.
Pity the nation — oh, pity the people who allow their rights to erode
and their freedoms to be washed away.
My country, tears of thee, sweet land of liberty.”

- Lawrence Ferlinghetti

  1. Yeah, I hate that term no matter whether it's being used by the right or the left. It seeks to insult and demean, clearly having given up on actually persuading.
