The End is Near (and we deserve it) . . . Goat Arrested for Attempted Robbery

An oldie but goodie. A goat in Nigeria was accused of being a person who attempted to steal a Mazda 323 before turning himself into a goat with black magic. Yes, really.

  1. Piper! I have a friend whose son is begging for a hedgehog! I just sent this off to her. She’s going to kill me. I loved MarkKap’s debate parody. Good stuff. Thanks for sharing your faves.

  2. K.B. Owen says:

    Wow, Piper! You are quick in slipping my post in there, girlie! Thanks so much for the shoutout. Loved the app parody. Riot!

    It’s funny about the goat…driving home yesterday, I thought for SURE that someone was walking a GOAT. No, really! I could only see the lower part of the body in traffic. Slowed down for a better look, but it turned out to be a dog, LOL. Why is the universe sending goats my way? Maybe it’s a message.

    Okay, enough of my rambling about the goats. Have a fab weekend!

  3. Hilarious. I’m the one who voted for roasted goat, by the way. On the drive to work in Bahrain, I frequently saw dead, skinned goats in the back of pick-ups. But they weren’t driving…

  4. Great links, thanks
    And, not a wise choice turning into a goat here…loose goats don’t last long. It’s Texas, cabrito (slow spit-roasted over hickory) is highly prized for cookouts.

    Nice one, Piper.

    I’m sure the goat thing could come in useful here as well.

    Perp: “No officer, it wasn’t me who robbed that bank, stole a car, and then crashed it into that house. It was my goat. She is evil!”

    Officer: “Gee, I didn’t know! Sorry for bothering you sir.” Tips hat. “My mistake. Move on then.”

    I also liked the article on autistic girls. I just a Bollywood movie about an autistic girl (Barfi) a few weeks ago. I rather liked it, it was rather different to the usual crap from Bollywood.

  6. Thank you for including me in The End Is Near… I am honored as always, Piper. And thank you for sharing Marcy Kennedy’s post…I have to admit that I chose the characteristics of Frodo. But, then again, self-praise is no praise at all. And I would totally arrest a goat. Ignorance of the law is no defense. Getting a plea bargain might be a little tough, though.

  7. Catherine Johnson says:

    I’m shocked at how many people would roast the goat. And I want to hang out where Laird is hanging out on YouTube, that was weird and cute at the same time.

  8. I’m wondering how they scientifically tested whether or not the goat had once been a human. DNA sample? Hoof prints??

    I hope your knee is better. 🙂

  9. I’m sorry, but I had to answer YES to your poll question. I live for stupidity like this.

    Some people are so stupid it’s crazy. This article made my day, thank you for sharing!

  10. I’m loving these poll questions! …LOL Now then, if someone had told me I could turn myself into a goat to get out of that speeding ticket I got a few weeks ago, I would’ve. Why is it, you always learn about helpful things after the fact?
