No wonder they're sleepless in Seattle

Counting sheep can be an exciting activity, what with 'enhancing' goats, dogs, and the occasional kangaroo, so they can be counted as sheep, making home visits to absent sheep so they can swear out affidavits that they were indeed in the field that day, and constantly finding new batches of sheep behind haystacks and under bushes, that were inexplicably omitted from the first few counts. Where's the little boy who looks after the sheep? Looks like he's been under a haystack himself, perhaps looking for more misplaced mutton.

And it's not just votes that they count in the Emerald City. Words, for instance. But strangely enough, auditors can sometimes have a tough time of it. Perhaps they could use an auditor with considerably more teeth.
