People, the masses, in that they tend to be silly and blindly do the same as other people do, even if it's a bad idea.

from the romance Pantagruel, by Renaissance French author Francois Rabelais, in which, while aboard a ship, the character Panurge buys a sheep from a flock that is aboard and casts it in the sea, at which point all the other beasts follow suit and jump in the sea.
Bah... everybody swears by those teeny bopper "stars", whether they are any good or not... Panurgian sheep all of them.
