Loremen S3 Ep24 - The Vegetable Lamb of Tartary

June 11, 2020

James Shakeshaft plays against type by offering up a story that's very nearly historically accurate.

The legend of the Vegetable Lamb of Tartary or 'Barometz' seemed so plausible. It was a grazing lamb that grew on a bush; it seemed like it HAD to be real. The stories were so convincing a series of extraordinarily named men launched expeditions to find it. They didn't find it. It's not a real thing. Come one, a vegetable lamb? What next, strawberry crackling? Beef tomatoes? BLOOD ORANGES?!
