Welcome Pirates, Mafia & the Wise.
It’s rumored that the Mafia, more accurately - the Sicilian mafia is known for using the Sheep Code for communication.
Police said many of the messages were used to alert fellow criminals that a new "Pizzini" was ready referred to as sheep. Among the lines used were: "The sheep need shearing ... the shears need sharpening" or "The hay is ready." The Italian police said they did not believe the mafia members were discussing agricultural matters.
Another phrase used was "I've put the ricotta cheese aside for you, will you come by later?"
Likewise, we are communicating with you - about matters usually kept behind closed veils. We talk about Tech, Design, Science & Life. Our random thoughts written will forever remain ‘The Sheep Code’.
