So Full of Win

I know some folks will think I’m being a dick, but this story just got to me.

Sweden’s “Burning Goat”

Go on, give it a read.

Back?  Ok.  The first thing the city officials should do is check to see who gos to, or went to, the Burning Man event here in the states.  I mean come on, it’s a large effigy that is constructed from highly flammable materials, what other possible fate could this thing have.

Well, there was that one time where the legs got cut off, so I guess a hovering legless goat is one fate.  Maybe call it a goat float.

But where the WIN is, is in this sttement:

This year the city Web site offers users a chance to follow the goat’s fate via a Webcam, Twitter page and a blog — in both Swedish and English.

Really?  Twitter?  I can just see it now comming over the feed:

OMFG!!! Jag er PÅ ELD YALL. KALLA Elden Avdelning! skynda på

And it’ll all be on live webcam feed too.

And then there’s this:

In 2005, the goat was burned down by two arsonists dressed up as Santa Claus and the Gingerbread Man. They were never caught.

I bet ole St. Nick was mumbling something about pegan symbols and burning witches.

    Add a light and a camera…

    Merry Christmas and happy new year.

    I picked up another copy of Army of two. The Bling on those guns is really cool.

    I picked up two copys of Left for dead as well if your ever up for it.
