That World Cup Sheep Ringtone

Oh dear me. Those crazy people at the Lake District Tourist Board clearly can't see a bandwagon creaking past their windows without jumping on it . . . Yes, it's World Cup 2006, so that must mean it's time for the baaarmy sheep to encourage you to wrap yourself in St George's flag, spray lager over your belly and come to Cumbria. If you're desperate for punishment you can watch the movie and download the ringtone here. Someone really ought to tell Eric Robson and his wacky marketing mavens that this joke's not funny anymore. The original rendition of Jerusalem was amusing the first time you heard it. But Jingle Bells was, well, a jingle too far. Now we've got Land Of Hopeless Tories. My advice is holiday on Herd Island. No TV = No World Cup. No sheep either, come to that . . .

Ha! My computer refused to download it. Either Microsoft is part of a world-wide anti-cumbrian conspiracy or Windows has a built in kitsch filter!

hmm . . seems to work OK up here: it could be your browser settings prevent the download of dodgy content files - stuff with ActiveX controls etc. Whether it's worth downloading is an entirely different question of course . . .

Rather like being forced to endure England's performance against Paraguay . . .
