Xmas Baaaaarmy Sheep...

I love it so do the kids,
G-man thinks we have all gone insane:)
I don't care I need funny....

A FLOCK of real singing sheep from the Lake District are taking on the Crazy Frog this Christmas in the battle to become the novelty song of 2005.

The Crazy Frog’s Christmas single - Jingle Bells - gets its first airplay on Thursday December 1 and is widely tipped to become Christmas number one.

But the “Baarmy Sheep” of the Lake District are launching a pre-emptive strike by releasing a free version of Jingle Bells the day before on Wednesday, November 30.

The single and a hilarious sheep pop video can be downloaded free from the website of Cumbria Tourist Board at www.golakes.co.uk/xmasbaarmysheep

There’s also a Baarmy Sheep Christmas megamix featuring their rendition of Good King Wencelas, Hark The Herald Angels Sing and While Shepherds Watch Their Flocks By Night!!

Eric Robson, chairman of Cumbria Tourist Board, said: “Christmas may be the season of goodwill to all men – but not Crazy Frog’s!

“Visitors from all over the world love the Lake District and our sheep on the snow-covered mountains at this time of year, so we’re confident people will prefer our version.”

“Who knows, a winter break in the Lake District might be the only place to escape the Crazy Frog and the general stress of Christmas this year.”

The Baarmy Sheep version of Jingle Bells and the video was launched at the 17th century Yew Tree Farm, Coniston

The Baarmy Sheep first took on the Crazy Frog in June when they released a sheep ringtone Jerusalem - in response to the animated cartoon’s growing domination of television, airwaves and mobile phones.

To see the real Baarmy Sheep perform live this winter come to Cumbria - The Lake District! With our snow-covered mountains, award-winning accommodation, family friendly attractions and superb places to eat and drink, it's a great place to spend Christmas and the winter months.
