It's caprine time!

I learned today that there's another grumpy goat out there. The one I'm referring to has just been demoted for failing to keep in step or possibly to stand in line (dependent on the source of the story). Wouldn't you be grumpy if it happened to you? The BBC notes that following his demotion, Fusiliers no longer have to stand to attention when the goat marches past. Grump, grump, grump.

And there's another caprine story. It seems that in Manhattan it's OK to use an unsilenced petrol lawnmower, but not a goat, to keep the grass under control. I take the mayor's point though:"Other residents will want one too". I'd keep a cute goat if I didn't live in a tower block. Just as well the story originates in Manhattan, Montana rather than the better-known one in New York.

Two goat-related stories in the same edition of 7DAYS. And following on from the Tenerife moped story too. My cup runneth over!

We knew that would tickle your chinny chin-chin, Goat!

And presumably if some gentlemen with beards and grubby robes let you get away with it:-)

How come, LGoC, I don't get a similar reaction to the phrase:

"I'd keep a labrador if I didn't live in a tower block"?
