"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

Demands are sometimes worth their while.  We are watching the SuperBowl.  THIS barn is now demanding Doritos.  No one can say there isn't power in advertising.  I'm just sayin' ...

My favorite commercial by far. I thought I would pee my pants when that goat screamed.

Marigold said...

Dear Kelly,
Will there be Doritos in YOUR barn? Huh?

Millie said...

Yes, I do think we should be getting some as well.

Lisa said...

I do like me some Dorito's. I might have to get all ninja on a goat like that!

Marigold said...

Dear Millie,
We may have to resort to extortion. Leave 5 large bags of Doritos in a plain brown paper bag at the barn door at Midnight or pictures of the Goatmother bald go on the internet.

Marigold said...

Dear Lisa,
Leave my Doritos alone or we'll be sending that little green guy back to visit. (I'm beginning to like this whole extortion idea.)

Terry said...

Dear Marigold, all of us Goat Maids and Goat Mothers and other so-named servants of goats are calling for a boycott of Doritos. It's hard enough catering to the goaties' whims. Now it's downright impossible.

Marigold said...

Dear Terry,
Shhhhhhh! Do NOT let the Goatmother hear you say that. She has enough stupid ideas on her own without help. Well, never mind. Until her hair grows back I've got her exactly where I want her. BWAAH HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!

Mrs. Micawber said...

Be careful what you wish for, Marigold. Doritos are just a vehicle for MSG, which as we all know is a magically addictive substance guaranteed to drive up chip sales and mess up brain cells. (MSG = Mentally Screwed-up Goat.)

Say NO to Doritos and YES to Peanuts! (As long as they're not Dry Roasted.)

P.S. The F.A.P. had a handful of Cheetos tonight. We're very good at talking the talk - not so much at walking the walk.


Mrs. Micawber said...

Okay - just watched the commercial.

Hilarious! :)

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
You're just trying to trick me. I can tell. Plus you already came across with an admission of hypocrisy so, then, why should I trust you? Eh? I ask you.

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
Admittedly it was kind of *girly* scream.

Candy C. said...

That was a GREAT commercial...or maybe we all liked it so well because we understand goats so well?!? Please do NOT tell the goats here about Doritos, I already have to buy them Peanuts now! (sigh)

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
Actually the jury is still out on the Dorito issue, despite my extortion attempts. Peanuts still hold the number one place, but we shall see... Bwaaaah hahaha ha ha ha!!!!!!
