“Once you wake up, it’s hard to go back to sheep”

"Once you are awake, it’s hard to go back to sheep” (or “Once you awake, it’s hard to go back to sheep")—“sheep” is a change from the usual “sleep”—is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Sheep” means members of the gullible masses, and “awake” means “woke” to the real causes of events.

The saying—with several slight variations—went viral in 2012. “Once you wake up, it´s hard to go back to Sheep” was posted on Twitter by Au/Ag999 on August 14, 2012. “@charlesfrith Once you wake up, it´s hard going back to sheep” was posted on Twitter by Au/Ag999 on August 16, 2012. “once you awake, it’s hard going back to sheep” was posted on Twitter by rdp on August 29, 2012.

“Once you awake, it is hard to go back to sheep...” was posted on Twitter by Jake on October 18, 2012. “Once you awake, it’s hard to go back to sheep” was posted on Twitter by Sucker Punch ♀ later on October 18, 2012. “Once you awaken its hard to go back to SHEEP wink” was posted on Twitter by Joe Eigo 144 Vortex on October 18, 2012.
