The story linked here is just crazy. The kids are the ones in the story who make the most sense. They were in a program which allowed them to learn all aspects of farm life. Apparently, they caught on too well. When they realized that some basic bartering could net them a few pigs, they decided to slaughter the lamb. Now, it seems, all of England is up in arms over the little lamb. The kids have it all figured out. Maybe they will be able to help the adults learn a lesson. This is one time it would be better for the kids to win the battle of the lamb.
