As the farmer was about his morning walk, he could not but help notice Little Bo Peep lingering under the shade of an orange tree.
"Hey there Little Bo Peep! Where are your sheep?" The Farmer bellowed.
Bo Peep maintained an indignant look on her face, and breathed a mousey voice:
"Not to worry. I have made special arrangements to make sure they are safe."
Seeing the farmer's curious look forming, Bo Peep led him further into the woods towards an enormous enclosure that was fortified with electrified fences 10 feet tall, and cameras positioned to view outside at every possible angle.
"What the hell's this!?" the farmer exclaimed.
"This," Bo Peep Squeaked. "Is my new Sheep Enclosure: designed to keep the sheep in, and unwanted predators like wolves and what-nots out.
"You see, every now and again, I would lose some sheep. One or two might decide to wander away. Sometimes wolves come and steal one. These wolves, I really have had enough of these evil cunning creatures. They go from farm to farm stealing sheep, manipulating all the fail safes that we sheep herders keep in place.
"Now my problem is solved, with this state of the art security system. It will give a nasty shock to sheep trying to get out, and wolves trying to get in. It will also provide live video feed to KillthoseWolves.com where other farmers can identify where are the wolves in their respective areas."
"How many sheep do these wolves really take from you each year, Bo Peep?" The farmer asked.
"Well, normally about 2 or 3 a year, sometimes 4, if those wolves start to form huge packs and start to plan to raid our farms together." She replied.
"And how may sheep wander away and disappear?" He asked again.
"Last year I had to spend so much time looking for 2 of my sheep that wandered around when I fell asleep during work" She replied again.
"Don't you have over 6000 sheep, Bo Peep?" the farmer said. "does not make much sense to create such an intricate security system just to prevent these black sheep, pardon the pun, from wandering away? Or for wolves to steal them?"
"Actually, I only have 2000 sheep now. The costs of this electric enclosure, the video systems, and the staff I've hired to view and monitor the videos is rather expensive, and I have had to sell some sheep to finance them.
"But not to worry," Bo Peep continued, beaming. "Now I can rest and sleep easy that all my sheep are safe, though my staff are still trying to find out how much electric shock the sheep can take. So far, 40 have died from electrocution."
"Nice.." the farmer said, before he went on his way in the whimsical world of nursery rhymes come to life.
