Me and my goat are goin’ to France!
Blog Guy, I come to your blog just for the goat news, which is the best! My goat has been really good lately, and I’d like to do something nice for him. Any suggestions?
Um, well, maybe you could give him a nice bath?
Oh, that’s nothing special for him. I want this to be truly memorable.
Gotcha. How about entering him in a beauty contest. He’ll be thrilled if he wins, and the goat beauty pageant circuit is in full swing this month.
That’s a good thought, but he doesn’t look that great in a swimsuit. Don’t tell him I said so.
Look, I do have one other idea, but it would be a REAL splurge.
Tell me! Tell me! I want him to be just the happiest goat in the whole world!
Well, every goat I’ve ever met has been crazy about bicycle racing.
Yes! That’s right. He LOVES bicycle racing. So?
Three little words for you. Tour de France…. Be sure to ask for the special goat discount.
