"That goat loved to drink."


I think I know now why that last goat is all bundled up and having a small glass of tea: hangover!

You know, Kerry has visited some bar down in the Southwest somewhere near Mexico where the mayor of the community is a goat who drinks. Seriously.

Maybe it's one of this goat's grandkids!

I've been to that joint a couple of times when I visited Chicago. And it is just as famous as the basis for the SNL "Cheeburger cheeburger" skit as it is for the owner's pet goat. But that goat was pretty amazing. He's the reason behind a famous curse against the Chicago Cubs.

Thanks for the info, very cool. What's the curse?

Patrick said...

great, yes the Cubs have been cursed with not winning the world series since they banished the goat from Wrigley field

Well, why'd they do that?
