It would be nice if everything you read on the internet was as trustworthy as Yahoo News, but it seems we here at HotelSweep have been caught out!
Some of you may have come across this story about the ‘Hotel Sheep Guest House’ on Yahoo News. There is no such place (as far as we know – yet) in the land of the rising sun, but a lot of bloggers seem to have been taken in by our little bit of fun at the Hotel Sheep Blog.
Our fun was put to an end by Snopes.com, the classic online rumor busters, who wrote a highly detailed article explaining exactly how and why there is no hotel for sheep in Japan. We think that sometimes, a myth can have a value all its own, but clearly the good people at Snopes.com do not agree with this sentiment.
