Call for Submissions for the NGIP 2011 Goat Calendar

Do you have an awesome photo of a goat? If you do, send it in for consideration to be published in the 2011 Nanny Goats in Panties Calendar. The goat doesn’t necessarily have to be yours, but the picture does (and it can be a picture that has been featured on Goat Thing of the Day in the past). Send your picture to margaret (at) nannygoatsinpanties (dot) com. And it would probably help if you put something like “NGIP 2011 Calendar Submission” in the subject line.

    I simply adore fainting goats since I saw them in person at the Museum of Appalachia in Norris, Tennessee, in the mid '90s. I thought I'd killed them just by walking by and saying hi. It was quite the eye-opener. Now I watch the YouTubes of them at least twice a year. And I blogged about them. I've got fainting goats covered except for the gelato part. That's just … weird.

    1. If I didn't know better, I'd say goats are taking over the world.

  2. I cant handle HOW cute that first photo is! Awwwwwwwwwwwww!

  3. britt says:

    That was the cutest goat picture EVER!

  4. Momo Fali says:

    The Fainting Goat had me at a full sheet pan of baklava.

  5. debbie_suburbsanity says:

    Such cuties! And you are so organized – already planning next year's calendar.

  6. Joolz Art says:

    Love the little jumping goat, and that sign with the fainting goat is cute too.

  7. Hi!
    I love your blog and just wanted you to know that I gave you an Honest Scrap blog award.

    Awww, that's a precious little baby. I loved that video. Are those goat sounds for real? I've seen goats at the Fair, etc. but never heard any that sounded like that. Real or not, it was hilarious .

    1. Linda – As far as I know, it's real. I've seen other videos in the past of this sound from a goat, which is why I don't doubt this one. It's still an odd sound, though. And funny!

  9. That is quite possibly the cutest goat I have ever seen!

  10. Oh..I peed my pants a little on that one! LMAO. I was waiting for the Jerry Lewis goat to say “Laaaaady”

    Thanks Margaret…I needed that.

  11. Ellen says:

    Love the Jerry Lewis goat….made me smile….

  12. moooooog35 says:

    I love goats until they get older and try to steal your soul. Then..notsomuch.

    Maybe I'm thinking about cats.

    It's the reincarnation of Cinderfella. Hey Lady!

  14. Cheri Pryor says:

    The only thing that could make that video more perfect is if the goat had buck teeth. Just sayin'. lmao!! Hilarious!!

  15. Love the Fainting Goat logo. What a hoot.

    And a 2011 calendar! You are so organized. I can't wait to see it.


  16. Janiss says:

    OMG! That Jerry Lewis goat had me in stitches! I can't stop laughing! Help!

  17. Hugzb4ugo says:

    That Jerry Lewis goat was funny. I was all, like, whaat? Is that normal?

  18. I have tears rolling down my face over that video!!!! And three other people are watching it with me – I don't know if the WAHHHHHHHT? is what makes it funny or watching the people crack up, or both! But I had to play it about four times… laughing until I couldn't breathe!

    The Fainting Goat place… owned by a Greek? (Greek in my family – the only ppl I know who sell Baklava) Is the icecream made of goat's milk?

    Oh and you KNOW how I favor those chin resting goat pictures ha ha!

    I have to go now. I have a funny goat video to watch again LOL!

    1. I couldn't figure out if it was all made from goat's milk or if they have a flavor or two made from goat's milk. I think I read that they were Turkish, do the Turkish make baklava too?


    What the . . . ?

    Is THAT what goats sound like? Or just that goat? I played that over about 20 times. I have never heard anything so strange and funny. I WANT ONE!

    Love the Faint Goat logo.

  20. scott_free says:

    Leaping? That kid looks about ready to break dance!

    1. Isn't he just the cutest little thing?

  21. daisythecurlycat says:

    I love goats. Especially talking goats.

  22. Kate says:

    The Jerry Lewis goat made my day, no….month… year. It was THAT good! Thanks, Margaret.

  23. Lauralee Hensley says:

    Sorry meant to type any other goats besides him or maybe it's a her.
    My dogs got me distracted.

  24. Lauralee Hensley says:

    Funny Goats. Sounds like it's saying “Whattttt?” and “OOOOOO-NOOOOOO” everytime she's feeds any other goats inside of him or maybe it's a her.
    LOL…… Made my two dogs standing by me do a double take.

    1. That's the thing. You're expecting this little baa-baa and out comes this WHAAAAAATTTTTT????? And it keeps getting funnier each time he/she does it.

  25. Pricilla says:

    Awww, my grandkid. Of course I am prejudiced.
    He is turning into quite the little leaper.

    I, of course, hope to star in your calendar. In fact I think it should be all Pricilla!
