Thailand has an obsession with cute sheep

I am not sure why, but there is a major obsession in Thailand with sheep that have awkwardly huge grins.  I know that many "cute" things become a national craze, but these sheep are so cute they are downright creepy.

Every single market/area/tourist trap has some form of sheep good to sell to people.  They range from small ceramic sheep...


They have sheep in candle form...


They have creepy smiling sheep...



Not to mention sheep signs...



Even with all my cynicism, I have to admit the sheep signs are pretty cute.  They definitely are better than some of the creepy smiling sheep that have "welcome" or "come in" written on them.  Sorry, but a huge grinning clay sheep that doubles as a stool saying welcome is not inviting... it is terrifying.

Though, I guess sheep fever catches on, because this happened...


Judge me all you want, I purchased that awesome beanie/hat thing.  I mean, it was only $4.20.  I actually did consider haggling it down a bit, but yeah, totally worth it, right?

Just for good measure... more sheep
