On a lighter note...goats!

The following is a real post from craigslist:

Goats Wanted

Once again i looking for goats, never thought i would have such a hard time finding goats. I will give them a wonderful life, they will have 60 acres of berry brush and grass/weeds, they will drink fresh water straight from a year round creek, or from the river, they will also have a large barn to seek shelter if they like.
So if you have a goat that needs a new home, please let me know. I am able to pay a small adoption fee, i am looking to have a small herd.

Only stipulations: They must be healthy, and they must love children, and have a pleasant disposition, and love attention especially from children!

Never thought he'd have such a hard time finding goats? And how does he intend to find out if they love children? The hard way? And since when do goats come with an adoption fee?

I realize I'm a suburban kid, but, um, this is a little weird.

Not as creepy, though, as posts I've seen making people promise that, having received said goats, they will not EAT THEM.

I am not making this up.

This is what I get for looking at the "items wanted" section on craigslist.

But if it made you all laugh, it's worth it. And hey - maybe it made you realize your ambition in life is to help him with a small herd. (If so, don't tell me. I don't want to know.)

Maybe this is his way of saying that he looks on the goats more as a surrogate wife and mother to his children than as a food source.

Personally, I'd rather that he just ate them.
