Goats on a blog

Here's another story about goats which I spotted on the BBC News last week.

Yesterday I finally saw Snakes on a Plane. It was excellent. When I go to the cinema I'm generally looking for a few things from a film, this one ticked all my boxes:

  • Comedy stereotypes
  • Gratuitous swearing
  • Excellently quotable one liners (I almost clapped when Samuel L. Jackson delivered his famous catch phrase. This is a family blog so I'm not reproducing it here.)
  • Cliched love interests
  • Snakes on plane
  • Central protagonist faced with difficult decision, makes right choice
  • Two unlikely friends bought together by circumstances
Finally, whilst researching a goat image to accompany this post I came across the website of the British Goat Society, allgoats.com. The URL isn't lying, their website is all about goats. Apparently one of their aims is to "circulate knowledge and general information upon goats". Personally I find the printing press and the internet pretty efficient ways to disseminate information, but perhaps we do need to fall back on other tried and tested methods. Such as goats. So look out for goats carrying encyclopedias and current affairs magazines.

Glad to see there are people out there looking out for our goats! Incidentally, have you noticed the way the 'archives' history on the right of your page forms almost a remarkably smooth shape with the names of months? Actually, come to think about it, it looks a lot like Jesus...

The blog is losing viewers faster than the Labour party is losing credibility! Or maybe not quite that fast.
