Goat Friday

“We may be the world’s most poorly-dressed goats, but we’ve got a million dollar view...”


This week the gong goes to the promoters of a Rolling Stones concert in Belgrade, who want to stage the ultra-decibel event within metres of where 300 horses are stabled.

The plan is to drug the animals with diazepam to “keep them calm”, which has drawn the ire of the local animal protection society.

Unusual looking animals, dem mountain goats, Jacob.
And what a strange looking coat eh?

They borrowed some sheep skin jackets for the winter, right?


Oh for goodness sake: first we have some twit wanting the delightful Knut to die, now we have concert promoters wanting to sedate 300 horses so that some puny prune faced men can prance about.

They shoot concert promoters, don't they?

Maybe the promoters have themselves been 'shooting up'.

Interestingly, the Strolling Bones have been asked by the animal welfarers to intervene. Be interesting to see if the ageing sex gods will prove their welfaring credentials.

Kath, I've probably already said that mountain goats are the Charles Atlas of the goat world. Sort of very sculpted physiques.
