Goats are the new cats. Here’s why goats are stupendously awesome
Goats climb trees
Take a look at this. 16 goats. In a tree.
Goats walk on near vertical walls
Look at this dam….see those specks on the wall?
Those specks are goats. Goats! (They like to lick those walls for minerals).
Goats are playful
Listen to these goats having fun!
Azaleas are goat kryponite
If goats were to ever realize their true awesomeness and attempt to take over the world, we have one defence. Azaleas/Rhododendrons are highly toxic for goats.
Thor used goats to pull his chariot
Norse god Thor had two goats, Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr, which pulled his chariot. Sometimes Thor would eat them, but would resurrect them the next morning with his hammer!
Obviously, we can’t all own goats. But if you want to experience the thrill of controlling your very own goat, they you need Goat Simulator in your life. It’s a game. About goats.
Seriously, what’s not to like?
Goats invented coffee
Legend has it that Kaldi, an Ethiopian goat herder, saw his animals getting more active and energetic after eating the berries from a certain bush. Kaldi told the abbot of his local monastery, who made a drink from the berries and shared this knowledge far and wide.
What Kaldi didn’t tell the abbot was that he also fed his goats ginger and managed to milk the worlds first gingerbread latte straight from the goat. True story.
Finally, if you’re still not convinced goats are awesome…
Look at this…see the little speck at the top?
That’s a goat.
