    Yes! Mairzy doats and dozy doats
    and liddle lamzy divey
    A kiddley divey too, wouldn’t you?

    If the words sound queer
    And funny to your ear,
    A little bit jumbled and jivey

    Sing, Mares eat oats
    And does eat oats
    And little lambs eat ivy….

    I want to eat some lamb, wouldn’t you?

  12. Amie October 10, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

    My husband claims he doesn’t like lamb. Quite frankly I think he is crazy. Super quite frankly I KNOW he’s crazy. I am a damn good cook but others are far better. I want to expose him to awesome lamb ala Portland chefs. PLEEEEEEEASE!!!

    My husband and I will have been married for one year on Oct. 22, and I still refuse to cook him lamb. (I’m a self-described cutetarian and can’t eat the cuties of the animal kingdom). Please, rescue my lamb-loving hubby!!!

  18. Lisa October 11, 2012 at 2:54 pm #

    Lamb is just one of those things that is best left to professionals….disaster ensues when I attempt to cook it at home.

  25. Quiana October 11, 2012 at 3:57 pm #

    I LOVE lamb! I would really like to turn my hubby on to it also… But I’m afraid I do not know how to prepare it well and I don’t want to ruin it for him, so I never have. :( I would really like to have his first taste be prepared by professionals so perhaps he will love it as I do! This event would be a perfect intro for him! Please consider us!!
    Thank you! :)

  26. Julie October 11, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

  46. David Stone October 12, 2012 at 2:57 pm #

    Please? I want some mutton. (insert puppy dog expression here).
    Lamb Jam 2012! How cool would that be to tell someone that, Why yes, I won tickets to “Lamb Jam 2012”. And it was awesome!!! I would HAVE to make it my annual pilgrimage, bringing family and friends to show them what a great experience Lamb Jam is.
    Besides…you had me salivating at the mere thought of a smorgasbord of lamb dishes laid out for sampling.
    Please pick me. It would mean soooo much to be able to attend.

  47. Kevin Williams October 12, 2012 at 4:24 pm #

    My husband is a chef who loves to eat lamb. I love to eat lamb. This would make our year. And I would earn some serious points as the coolest wife ever. Do I have to be funny in order to win? Pick me and I’ll tell you a joke.

  55. Sabrina October 15, 2012 at 5:54 pm #

    Did you know many native oregonians were deprived of lamb for most of their lives due to their parents and grandparents experiencing a bad shipment of lamb in the 40’s which made many very very sick and everyone else leery??–I am recuperating from generational lamb loss…please help.

  56. Willard Jackson October 15, 2012 at 11:27 pm #

    Lamb is my family’s absolute favorite meal. It is our “go to” food for special occasion and Sunday night dinners. I just returned from Afghanistan after a one year tour and would like to treat my wife to a special surprise this weekend…just the two of us. Sorry kids, but hopefully Mom and Dad will be coming home with some new and exciting recipes!
