KATHIE J'S STUPID NEWS - MAN APPROCHES SHEEP AFTER GETTING TURNED DOWN BY A COW

WHAT??

Back in September, 61-year-old Paul Lovell of London, England was caught having public sex with a SHEEP.

He was in court this week, and finally explained WHY he had sex with the sheep. He admitted he only did it because he TRIED to have sex with a cow . . . but the cow REJECTED HIM.

He says he tried to get the cow to "perform" on him . . . but when the cow just wouldn't do it, he went for the sheep.

Apparently, when he said that in court, members of the jury busted out LAUGHING. The judge ended up yelling at the jury.

Paul is facing one count of outraging public indecency. He's out on bail . . . as long as he doesn't go back to the area where he was getting-it-on with the sheep and getting turned down by cows.
