“Sheepery” (n.): An unforeseen factor causing the ruination of a project, effort, or state-of-being.
Inspired by the combination of 1) scientists at the University of Nevada creating a sheep that is 15% human, and 2) villagers in Great Britain training a pack of attack-sheep. The confluence of these events portends a future society living in fear of pissed-off, intelligent, killer sheep.
