Can I nominate these as the new RW mascot? They're much cuter than goats. --JeɚvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 10:29, 10 December 2007 (EST)

Seeing as the Guardian calls them "evolutionarily distinct," they'd make a great mascot. But there's something unsavoury about goats that makes them a better fit, somehow....PFoster 10:50, 10 December 2007 (EST)

They are, indeed, wonderfully cute. But the goat has such a headstart that I don't see them catching up.  :-( Sadly, I suspect they may even be banished to the limbo of Fun.--Bobbing up 13:15, 10 December 2007 (EST)

Bah, heresy. There shall be no end to the reign of the goat. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 14:02, 10 December 2007 (EST)

I object to the external link video. Those animals are clearly fainting ferrets. (Bah! who says we have too many in-jokes.)--Bobbing up 14:16, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Lies, Bob, lies and deceit. That being said, I too object to it on the grounds that it portrays goats in a disparaging and/or ridiculous light. That must be against a rule guideline somehow. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 14:21, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Sorry AKjeldsen. I've been through all 2,037 pages guidelines, proposed guidelines, recommendations, help pages, written unwritten laws, unwritten unwritten laws - but I can't find anything that applies. Shall we put something on the "Proposed guidelines which we will talk about and not enact" page?--Bobbing up 15:02, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Indeed, post-haste! --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 15:18, 10 December 2007 (EST)
How should we word it? "It is proposed that no photographs, videos or other visual presentations of any type which might bring goats into ridicule, or which might be reasonably be expected to cause embarrassment or humiliation to goats, should be banned forthwith from the pages of Rationalwiki". Do you think that's comprehensive enough? Should we propose a punishment? Ferrets in the trousers for example? --Bobbing up 15:28, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Ye shalt not mock the exalted goat!!! humanUser talk:Human 15:32, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Concise, but I must admit I like Bob's version better. Oh, and once we have that in place, we can go to our Ultra-Sekrit Cabaal Hideout-Place and figure out an even more obscure rule that nobody else will know about until it's too late. Mwahaha. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 15:57, 10 December 2007 (EST)

The goat is not the messiah! Long live the prophet jerboa, peace be upon him! --JeɚvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 16:13, 10 December 2007 (EST)

Heretic! Let us put the holy ferrets in his trousers!--Bobbing up 16:45, 10 December 2007 (EST)
o/` He's got a ferret sticking up his nose... --JeɚvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 16:49, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Words fail me. An RW anthem? --Bobbing up 16:54, 10 December 2007 (EST)
Las sagradas escrituras decían que el creador del universo era un tal animal de orejas largas y de patas largas (en proporción al cuerpo).Illidan_Stormrage 02:39, 30 March 2021 (UTC)Illidan_Stormrage

Absolutely! We should have a rodent as a mascot. Secret Squirrel 17:19, 10 December 2007 (EST)

OR ...[edit]

May I put in a plea for the fennec fox. It is unbearably cute and eats vermin (probably including goat fleas, ferrets & jerboas). Susanpurrrrr ... 16:56, 10 December 2007 (EST)

Your Fennec Fox, may well trump the Long-eared Jerboa in cuteness and possibly in obscurity as well. But it, frankly, lacks goat.--Bobbing up 04:51, 11 December 2007 (EST)
Today it's the Fennec Fox, tomorrow it's sugar gliders... where would it end? --JeɚvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 17:08, 10 December 2007 (EST)
All these rodents are splitting the anti-goat vote, only making us stronger! -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!
Rodents? Come come!! Only one rodent has been proposed I feel.--Bobbing up 04:51, 11 December 2007 (EST)

FACTS[edit]

Now we see where the jerboaists stand!! Goatists put real facts in the article and they get stricken out. The only thing our opponents put in their place are emotional pleas. Taking about how "cute" it is and how "fluffy"! When the Goatists put real FACTS about the beast lines are put through them!!! WE all know who has the TRUTH!! Vote goat!--Bobbing up 16:56, 11 December 2007 (EST)

We Jerboabites are chosen people of God, who made the Long-eared jerboa in his own image. We all know why the devil is always depicted with goat horns, because goats were made in the image of the dark lord. Goatian facts vill be CENSORED. Feel free to open your mind. In Jerboa. --JeɚvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 17:02, 11 December 2007 (EST)
Oh no you are mistaken. The original scriptures described the divine being as having horns. Later translations from the original Goatish were "misinterpreted" by scribes who wanted to attract unbelievers to their side. It is YOUR scriptures which are at fault. I KNOW in my HEART that you WILL come to ACCEPT the Goat and leave your false ways.--Bobbing up 17:07, 11 December 2007 (EST)
Oh, that's a stonin'. Infidels like you will burn in hellfire for all eternity. Repent now and the great LORD Jerboa will grant you his infinite mercy. Hopspeed. --JeɚvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 17:15, 11 December 2007 (EST)
It is you who needs to REPENT Jeeves, you follower of the demon jerboa! YOU WILL BE CAST INTO HELLFIRE UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THE GOAT. --Signed by Elassint the Great Hi! 17:18, 11 December 2007 (EST)

Elassint, I now know with 95% confidence your views on sandy ground in public schools, the slaughter and consumption of goats and the banning of rodent poisons. Goatians always need to censor the living truth of the holy Jerboabites. In Jerboa. --JeɚvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 17:28, 11 December 2007 (EST)

The goat is the giver of life, and even the mighty Thor respects the strength and power of the mighty goat. Convert, or Thor will smite thee! Researcher 17:59, 11 December 2007 (EST)
Why can't you admit you're a deceitful Goatian? You avoid discussion of sandy ground in public school. Why is it you can't simply admit you oppose sand for our children. Hopspeed. --JeɚvsYour signature uses all my CPU time... 18:38, 11 December 2007 (EST)
LMAO! Only a dirty jerboaite would utter such disgusting slanders against my person. You release personal information, you assholes - if you do it any more, I'll release information from your secret jerboa cult . Why can't this be a clean slate, subGoat Nazis? Why can't I be sysop? --תך

I searched google video for Rationalwiki and found this[edit]

This is un-goat and should be rectified at once. Totnesmartin 22:08, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
