After seeing sheep being shorn at the 'Shear sheep experience' roadshow at the Fibre East festival, a number of possibilities came to mind. The opening line was a tough one to decide. Unusually, because of too many ideas. Here are some of the ones that got away:
/ Have you heard the good news about our lord and saviour?
/ have you got 5 minutes for a quick survey?
/ have you got time for a game of .... (monopoly, chess, etc)
/ I spy with my little eye...
/ did you know that you may be entitled to PPI?
/ Hi I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn
/ you're it!
/ Hi - are you interested in a cheaper quote for your contents insurance?

Try completing a puzzle online - they have just the right number of pieces for a coffee-break challenge and you gradually reveal the cartoon.
If you like Yvonne then the good news is that you can support the author, buy the image to keep and avail yourself of some really useful kit, such as mugs, bags, coasters, mouse mats, postcards, greetings cards, even posters and prints.
Don't see the item you'd like with the cartoon you'd like? Just email me, I'll be happy to arrange it for you.
Maureen: Yvonne, can I talk to you? You'll never guess what Graham...
Yvonne: (out of shot) Wait - can I stop you there...
Yvonne awkwardly held upside-down by shearer
Yvonne:No offence, but mate, this really isn't the best time
