The first interaction George will have with someone is when they pass in front of him. He will exclaim, "Hello, my name is George. Pat my head if you want to hear a sheep joke!" At this point, the victim (presumably) will pat George's head and George will reward them with a sheep joke. It is a simple system, but I hope that a randomly talking sheep will intrigue, startle (possibly frighten), and definitely delight passersby. The final presentation of our projects is soon so hopefully George will be on his best behaviour. I’ve warned him not to be baa’d.
