Not so much the fact that it’s a goat.

If I read a story that a goat was found in the Burgh: not so awesome to me.

However if you include any of the following:

1. The word “unidentified” in the headline.

2. A description of the goat including:

Officer Robert Smith reported that the goat, which a had a collar, had “an approximately four-inch beard and both left and right horns are intact.”

Then my God, it becomes awesome.

At least it wasn’t a turkey. You know how I feel about the turkeys.

Hat tip to Aeran who might have the most awesome name ever.

    I’m not kidding you that I just found this on the PG site and was about to send it to you, Pittgirl. There are no words except “WTF”? And, hey, those aren’t even words so… yeah, no words.

    I’m a bit shocked by the unidentified part actually. Really, would it be normal to have goats cruising around the city as long as they were identified?
