Tuesday's Top Ten Comics: "Year of the Sheep" Comics

Woot Woot! Mamet’s in the house, y’all!

So check it, everybody — the fine editors at King Features Syndicate were too busy to post on the blog today (Psst – “Dawson’s Creek” marathon on cable), so they asked me, Mamet, the suave sexy star of DeFlocked, to fill in. This is perfect, because Thursday is the official start of “The Year of the Sheep” in China. Growing up, my mom wouldn’t even let me touch the fine china. How you like me now, mom??!!

So, since this is MY year, all you folks can just sit back now and soak in my greatness. I’m about to educate you as to why sheeps are the smartest animals on the seven continence. 


To celebrate this momentous event, let’s all hold hands now and take a look at some of the coolest comic strips starring me and my peeps!

Hey, now that was a fine way to kick off “the Year of the Sheep,” don’t you think?  And what a year it will be. Ten whole months of love! You know, when I was little, I once asked if I’ll ever be great one day. And I was told “It is decidedly so.” Well guess what? You were right, Magic 8-ball! You were right! You were right!!! Wooooooot!

Peace out, peeps.
— Mamet
