for goat's sake

my auntie ira in sweden sent me this story about the christmas goat of gavle. every year they erect a giant goat of straw and wood and then spend the season trying to protect it from vandals who try to burn/tear it down. it is a classic struggle between good and evil (though it has become unclear which is which) with the fate of the goat hanging in the balance. this year, the goat survived and it has been ferreted away to a secret location.

hmmmmm, if this is one of their greatest conflicts, i think the swedes have it a little too good. perhaps they need to dismantle their universal health care and get bogged down in pre-emptive strikes abroad. though in last year's u.n. quality of life index, norway topped the list. maybe they should invade those norweigian bastards.

the 2005 goat.
the 2006 goat (fireproofed).
