Docm demonstrates a recent discovery by Redditor WolfieMario, who uncovered this hilarious gem when naming sheep: if you name a sheep "jeb_"...well, see for yourself!

To say as many people who rip apart and pry at this game at source level, this would been found instantaneously, or so one would assume.

Amusing none the less, but I see little point other then amusement of storing a bunch of sheep under a glass floor and naming them all jeb_ .

What if you shave the sheep? You get a multi color wool? :D
If I make spelling/grammer errors it's Google translate's fault.

It was mentioned in the video that it would drop white wool

it isn't that easy to find easter eggs in the code, it is more like a real search for easter eggs on a field, except that the eggs are green. jeb mentioned prior to 1.7 that there are still many undiscovered easter eggs.

"Jeb_"? [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/mobsheep.png[/img]

I'm so scared.... Any day... Just any day... They're gonna add something... And it's not gonna be plugin API...
Cuz that's all I'm waiting for, nothing else. I love minecraft, I love the muliplayer community. They had everything figured out in Beta!
But any day now... we're gonna log in.. All the servers are gonna be outdated.
And then we'll go open steam or LoL.

Hmm, I tried this by naming a sheep "Jeb_" but it didn't do anything but stay white.  Does it have to be done with a lower-case 'j'?  Also, I tried it in a vanilla survival world that was originally created with 1.7.2 with a sheep originally bred in 1.7.2, would that make a difference?  Any ideas what I did wrong?

Edit to add: I finally found another nametag (I don't cheat in survival :-) and named it "jeb_"  with a lowercase 'j' and got a rainbow sheep.  So, anyone trying this, make sure you use the lower case 'j'.

Someone took a play from Farmville's book.  Now THAT would be a trip--Farmville-style sheep and pig breeding!
