Fan Dressed as a Sheep Gets Set on Fire


crazy-halloween-costumes1A bad day got far worse for one Aberdeen soccer fan who was taken to the hospital after having his sheep costume set on fire. Earlier in the day the Aberdeen football club lost 2-0 to Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League and the train was taking fans from Edinburgh back to Aberdeen.

One man was arrested for reportedly starting the fire (FINALLY, we know who started it! Someone wake up the drunken Billy Joel!) which caused the sheep-clad fan to run through the train while aflame. Witnesses said that he was running, arms flailing through the train-cars still on fire as fellow travelers tried to douse the flames with the only liquid on hand, beer. A passenger from Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, said “His whole costume was on fire. It was like a scene from a horror movie.”

That was less than successful. The unfortunate fan is in serious but stable condition.

Being lit on fire is pretty terrible, but then, it’s still better than what most people in Aberdeen do to sheep. In fact there are TONS of Aberdeen sheep jokes on the Internet, for example:

Q: What do you call a sheep tied to a lamp-post in Aberdeen?
A: A leisure centre.

Two Dons supporting farmers are flying with their herd of sheep to a new farm.
Suddenly, the plane engine fails and it rapidly descends towards the ground.
Dons Fan 1: Quick! Grab a parachute and jump!
Dons Fan 2: What about the sheep ???
Dons Fan 1: Fuck the sheep!!!
Dons Fan 2: …(pause)… Do you think we have time?

Q: What do you call an Aberdeen fan with Five sheep?
A: A pimp.
