Back to Our Sheep

The very common French expression "Revenons à nos moutons", literally "lets get back to our sheep" means "lets get back to the real subject" after some digression.

The origin would appear to be a play from 1464 so it counts as pretty well-established.

Parting thot: "Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner." - James Bovard
