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:

Latest from @SweedishBurningGoat

OMFG!!!  I’M ON FIRE YALL.  CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT!  HURRY!
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.

    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.
