And those superstitious policemen in Nigeria have once again arrested a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery (because, you know, witnesses claimed that one man escaped pursuit while the other turned into a goat).


Allow me to quote a police spokesman:

We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody.”

and…

We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat.”


You can read the full story on The Daily Mail.

    Wow! Goats that produce beer? Gotta get me one of those… do I have to become a Viking first?

  2. sewa mobil says:

    goats have been evolved to mimic the human nature in the pants

  3. Condo Blues says:

    It's times like these when I am proud of my Viking heritage.

  4. Valhalla would sure be hubby's idea of heaven.
    I know that goat cannot be one of those criminals… he is just too damn cute. Look at those eyes, those are innocent eyes.

    Life would be so less interesting without The Daily Mail. And cenosillicaphobia sounds like the most rational of all the phobias.

  6. I'm just speechless. Robbers who turn into goats? Why a goat, why not a possum or kangaroo? At least they have pockets. Goat Beer? The Vikings have never been known for their brains, not really their brawn either.

  7. Um. Okay, I cant even believe policemen in Nigeria are holding a GOAT in custody and waiting to prove scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat! WTF?

  8. moooooog35 says:

    I'm buying a goat just to see if that Viking thing is true. FORTUNE HERE I COME!

  9. Ausetkmt says:

    yes I covered this story about a year or two ago. the goat was accused of witchcraft. you see in nigeria witchcraft is very real. I won't go further but I'll say this. the goat had to get a really good lawyer and international aid organization attention to escape his fate. I hear the curry pots were heating up as the courts finally relented. oh welll… (sorry goats)

  10. buggys says:

    I want to be notified when they prove scientifically that a man turned in to a goat. No really.

  11. Maitri says:

    Hey, I've been thinking about getting a couple of goats, the wee pygmy ones. But if you can't pick them up and they're boozers, I'm not so sure….

    I just adore your blog!

    Hugs and Love,

    Maitri, trying to sneak in and pick up a goat…

  12. scrapendipity says:

    Damn. I wanted so badly to pick up that one goat.

  13. In the last two weeks I've read two articles about Nigeria. One's about penis stealing and the other's about a man turning into a goat. This place sounds freakin' interesting!

    I'm beginning to think I'm living a pretty boring life.

  14. Suzy says:

    Someone should have handwritten “poop” after the word goat in Rule #1. Must I think of everything?

  15. Goat titty beer! Eeeeheehee!

  16. Katherine says:

    I love it… one of my favorite things are signs telling you not what to do. Usually I do what they say not to do. I might have to pick up a goat. Unless they tell me not to. Then I won't. Unless they tell me with a sign. Then I might. This is under the assumption that goats can write. Signs. And that I could actually pick up a goat.

  17. Goat BEER! That does not sound appetizing but the pic is a hoot.
    Happy weekend.
    xo

  18. marlaahansen says:

    Sure, blame the poor goat for the robbery and not the slob drunk on her titty beer.

  19. Um….what happens if I pick up the goat? They are so cute. 😉

    Viking Heaven: Hee hee.

  20. Collette says:

    I love these! Poor goat taking the rap for a thief. They couldn't have blamed a random bird? LOL

  21. Jayne says:

    The goat did it? That goat needs a good lawyer.

  22. Marg says:

    Well my first inkling is who wants to pick up a goat????? And second, why would a goat commit armed robbery, because it has it's own weapons in the horns. Who wants to mess with those horns??? But the sign is terrific. Don't see that very often. I would like to see someone try to pick up the goat that lives here. I would have to be there with the video camera.

  23. Ellen says:

    The police officer's have obviously been to Valhalla…smiles.

  24. nooter says:

    soooo, if a muslim viking dies and goes to paradise, does he get 72 virgin goats, or a woman with beer flowing from her teets?

  25. Paul says:

    I remember reading about the man turning into a goat thing somewhere before. Never heard about the Viking thing,.. life would be so much more interesting if we had similar beliefs today 🙂

  26. sheila says:

    One of my exes once turned into an ass and tried to escape with all my money.

    1. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

      nice one, sheila!

  27. windsorgrace says:

    First, this is insane. Are people really picking up goats all the time? What would make you want to pick up a goat? Are they talking about baby goats? I'm so confused. I'm not even going to try to consider someone arresting a goat for armed robbery.

  28. The 'man turned into goat' story could NEVER be true. No self-respecting goat would drive a MAZDA as a getaway vehicle. They prefer black Escalades!

  29. AnythingFitsANakedMan says:

    Wow! I have no words for that last part, a burglar turned into a goat? Why wouldn't he pick something that could run away fast, like a cheetah, or something? Hmm….curious.

  30. Nezzy says:

    #1. Why do I want to pick up a goat???
    #2. Goats give beer?
    #3. This one has to be my fav…..Now, ya'll I'm from the Show-Me-State and baby this one will have to be proven scientifically. Heeeheehehe! These are great and brought sunshine into my otherwise cloudy, rainy Ozarks day. Thanks!!!

    God bless and have a super Saturday!!!

  31. SueAnn says:

    Okay! It was far too early in the morning for me! I was unable to process the “man turned into goat” thing! LOL! Groan!!!!!! I need more coffee for sure!

  32. Sounds like an awful lot of headlines we read when I state, life is often stranger then fiction..and it often isn't funny…

    So, she found that sign in a Muslim bar?

    What?

  34. Mad Woman says:

    I love that one about the Vikings. And why the heck can't I pick up any goats? That sucks!

  35. Nanc says:

    So Rule #2 is: 'No goat juice for you unless you're of legal age and have a photo ID'?…

  36. Pricilla says:

    If humans can hitchhike why can't goats?

    Silly police…no self respecting goat would commit ARMED robbery.
    Goats don't have arms.

  37. OMG! my tea just came out my nose when I saw that sign. Too funny!
