What's Wrong With This Picture?

Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons is a strange book, to say the least, but for some kids, it is a great way to teach reading. William seems to be progressing. Each lesson has a small story accompanied by a silly drawing. Several weeks ago, we came across this story: A man sat on a ram. That ram can not see. Here is the drawing that accompanied that story. What's wrong with this picture, and why does the ram have on a hat? Is it just me, or is this a bit weird?

hmmm...my first reaction is the guy looks like one of those that shows up on certain county websites we were talking about the other day, since he seems to be missing pants under his trenchcoat. very weird.

Well, I'm guessing the man put a hat on the ram so his head wouldn't get wet, and since the hat is covering his eyes, that's why he can't see.
Sorry, I've no better thoughts/opinions on this subject. :(

whitetr6 caught what my warped mind saw, pita. It appears the man is wearing a raincoat without pants.

I guess I was too busy focusing on the ram. I never claimed being observant as one of my strong-points. ;)

At least he wasn't behind the ram.

That would be really weird.

Like, Kentukian weird.

(just kidding!)

Oh, and the animal in the illustration appears to be buck (or billie) and not a ram.

I used to write silly stories for my girls and then they would illustrate them. But we never wrote any with half naked guys riding strange goats....

That man needs pants.

I was hoping I wasn't the only one who noticed he had no pants. What kind of lesson book is that?
