Scottish Nationalists ‘To Ask Wales For a Few Thousand Sheep In Case Their Oil Industry Goes Tits Up’

The Scottish Nationalist Party are poised to ask Wales for ‘a few thousand sheep’ amid fears that their oil industry could go tits up after a ‘Yes’ vote in the forthcoming referendum.

The party, hoping to declare independence from the UK on Thursday are covering all eventualities in preparation for an independent Scotland.

A spokesman told WalesOnCraic:

“I went to Scouts when I was a kid, and apart from having my bare buttocks gently caressed by the Sixer, we were told to always be ready. As part of our strategy for long-term economic stability in Scotland, we are preparing in case our oil industry goes tits up. To do this, we are asking our Celtic cousins in Wales for a few thousand sheep. This will help us set up a global, multi-billion wool industry should we be invaded by Russia because we have no air force, army or navy.”

Welsh farmers reacted with anger at the announcement. One farmer told WalesOnCraic:

“They can piss off if they think they’re getting their hands on our sheep. They’ve been going around asking everyone what they can take but they’re not offering anything back. If they vote ‘yes’, good luck to them, but don’t come creeping round our valleys when it all goes wrong.”
