Did Ewe Know?

You are allowed to herd 1999 sheep at a
time -- legally -- down Hollywood Boulevard
in California. Add one more sheep to the
flock and you'll break the law! 
Fact from

In London, cab drivers (prior to 1976)
were required to carry a bale of hay to
feed horses, but sheep are given the Royal
-- they're allowed to cross the
London Bridge without paying the toll.
