This Associated Press picture from Emilio Morenatti of two goats (or is it sheep?) being carried at the back of a motorcycle on a road on the outskirts of Islamabad is quite funny. Although not as funny as the Eid Bakra post we carried earlier, here.

One wonders what the cast of characters is thinking. Maybe you can help us here. What might the guy at the back carrying the goat be thinking to himself? Or the driver of the motorcycle? And what about the goat; what thoughts might be passing through its mind? And, finally, what do you think the person in the car from which the photograph was taken is thinking as he sees this? Any thoughts?

Emilio Morenatti’s pictures tend to be thought provoking as well as interesting and we have created multiple ATP posts around them (here, here, here). Thank you, Emilio.

    Very Pakistan.

    One sheep is saying, “Yaar, where is my helmet”

    Second sheep is saying to the car driver, “sanou we lai chal naal way, baoo soni gaddi waaliya”

    Funny pictures and some funny captions.

    The only one enjoying the ride seem to be the goats!

    ….just wondering

    -did not the words ; “the wolf is coming” …. just pass around the corner ?

    Wait. How is this physically possible? What’s holding the other sheep on the motorcycle. The sheep in front is taking up all the space on the guy’s lap. And what’s keeping the guy in the back from falling backwards? He’s leaning back.

    I’ve heard that joke before, but told about economists. Although being one myself, I refrained from saying to the teller that the joke simply showed the farmer’s and recounter’s stupidity.

    IF the consultant/economist thought the dog was a sheep, he obviously got the number of sheep wrong.

    IF the farmer agreed that the number given to him by the consultant/economist was correct, he obviously did not know what he said he knew, or had earlier mistaken his dog for a sheep–which makes him no smarter than the consultant.

    In any case, you can worry a joke to death and ignore the point it is trying to make but, at least, get it internally correct!
