"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

A Novel Idea Takes Form

Sometimes I worry about the goatmother. She is a nice lady, but she gets strange ideas. Her newest scheme involves a goat. Now I can't say as I have any objection to anything having to do with a goat, but I may have to make an exception this time. The goatmother has decided she wants to bring a new goat to live with us. On the surface this may seem purely innocent, but there is something definitely wrong with this picture. This will be a goat like no other we've ever seen. The goatmother wants a Fainter! (sigh...).

Now you are probably wondering what in the world is a Fainter? This little video will make it all very clear - perhaps too clear. Perhaps more clear than you ever wanted it to be.

I just don't know. I mean, what's next? An elephant? And you know, this new goat will probably faint if it doesn't get all the peanuts. You know, like those human kids you see kicking and screaming? Which will probably result in it's getting even more peanuts! Peanuts...Yes... Ever see a Myotonic Mini Nubian?

Marigold I see you are practicing inversion therapy, just like Rosie O'Donnell. It is doing you a world of good. Don't forget, though, the fainter could become your assistant, and there is nothing better than having someone to kowtow to you and cater to your every whim. I mean, I know you have the goatmother, but she only has two legs, as you point out, so it isn't really the same.

Dear Goatfarmer,
Rosie. One of my idols - even if she does have only two legs. You should probably know that I will do almost anything for Peanuts.

By the way...you notice Peanuts is capitalized. This is out of reverence.
