What about Shaun "The Goat" Goater?

Can I add this? I had it on the CP article Goat but they didn't like it.

Conservative Christians often buy goats for Malawi orphans[1] whereas liberals like Madonna prefer to keep Malawi orphans as household pets [2].

What creatures are part of the "goat" baramin? --Kels 18:37, 31 May 2007 (CDT)

That is a stupid fucking question. Baramin?!? Obviously the term baramin is of questionable legitimacy in this context. They are part of the holobaramin that includes goat, rhinoceros, elephant, narwhale, and other horned animals. Jesus friggin Christ, but youre an idiot.--PalMD-yada yada 18:40, 31 May 2007 (CDT)

This needs more Harry Potter references. All that stuff about Albus Dumbledore's brother doing 'unspeakable magic' with goats needs to be in here. 59.91.210.114 11:47, 6 August 2007 (CDT)

Lambs[edit]

So are goats the only animals of worship around here? I used to know a woman who made a roast-beef-style roast lamb, and used the drippings to make a yorkshire pudding. MMM mmm was that good. --jtltalk 17:16, 1 June 2007 (CDT)

I think you just described most of the British women of a certain generation. Cooking the roast lamb, that is. Mmm, yummy, indeed, although the roast potatoes never come out as good as when roasting beef. humanbe in 12:01, 6 August 2007 (CDT)

Scary Question[edit]

So I have to ask...does all the goatspeak around here have something to do with the...uh...internet meme from a website whose name is similar to "goat"? Please respond without illustrative images. For the sake of my innocent eyes and pure mind. Thank you.--GoatHave a cold one! 13:58, 29 August 2007 (CDT) Not that I necessarily have a vested interest or anything...

Gotcha. Will cheerfully accept goat domination, as long as chimps are granted special status also. Just wanted to measure the moral decadence of the mob. --GoatConvertHave a cold one!15:42, 29 August 2007 (CDT) <--Will also cheerfully accept moral decadence

9/11[edit]

Shouldn't there be a mention that G.W.Bush was so entranced by the story of My Pet Goat that he couldn't pull himself away to deal with the attacks on the World Trade Centre? Genghis Khant 07:17, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

{{fact}}(?) Fascinating if true - never heard it before (being a furriner) Susan Jayne Garlicktalk 08:28, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

Well I'm not a native either but in Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911 he sits there for seven minutes (I think) listening to schoolkids read My Pet Goat after being told about the attacks. Of course being a deceitful librul liar Moore could have stretched it out a bit. Genghis Khant 08:52, 5 September 2007 (CDT)
This has to be included. Here are two links to verify. http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/essay.jsp?article=essayaninterestingday http://www.buzzflash.com/editorial/04/08/edi04057.html it was "My pet Goat".

Rebuttal to a stupid claim[edit]

"Creationists believe that goats co-existed with dinosaurs, since goats appear in historic hieroglyphs."

Such stupid nonsense! How can goats coexist with dinosaurs if goats appeared in historic hieroglyphs and dinosaurs are nowhere to be found in them? --Crazyharp81602 17:54, 22 February 2008 (EST)

Dinosaurs weren't what?PFoster 17:55, 22 February 2008 (EST)

That's because the goats wouldn't allow the dinosaurs to be depicted along with them. If they had been, they might have diminished the majestic glory that rightfully belonged to the goats. :nods: --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 17:58, 22 February 2008 (EST)

Goat-butting not re-butting? 82.44.143.26 (talk) 15:40, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Ironically, dinosaurs appear frequently in historical hieroglyphs (so frequently, in fact, that they have their own category devoted to them), but to accept the claim "dinosaurs and goats co-exist in hieroglyphs" you need to accept evolution and the evolutionists' weird definition of "dinosaur" ...

Legendary Goats[edit]

Perhaps we should remain true and faithful persons of faith, and not give in to the liberal sillyness of "politically correct speech", by using the correct term of "Satanic Goats", or if necessary, the slightly softer but less offensive terms of "Pagan goats" or "Heathen Goats". The Devil doth dwell in those horns and cloven hooves, don'tca know. --WaitingforGodot 12:59, 3 July 2008 (EDT)

Mmmm. New editor wants to edit the famous goat page straight off. And the "Legendary Goats" section at that. A brave place to start I must say.--Bobbing up 13:13, 3 July 2008 (EDT)

FYI[edit]

The search phrase "how many time are goats mentioned in the Bible?" now nets us about 50-100 views a month. Various combinations of gerbiling and goat net us about the same amount. Gerbiling alone nets us way to many. tmtoulouse 17:45, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Exactly, the kind of person who has to actually google gerbiling to know what it is? Naive, sheltered and probably home schooled. tmtoulouse 18:03, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
Should gerbiling have one L or two? The number of urban dictionary definitions would suggest two Ls is the more common form, but the number of google hits suggests vice versa. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:25, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

"The domestic goat (Capra hircus) was the first animal to train humans into protecting them full-time."

Very funny, except that a now-dead rational historian beat you to the punch before most of you rational smart-asses were born:

"They [Archaic-era Americans] domesticated the dog and the turkey, or as some would have it, the dog, who knew a soft touch when he saw one, domesticated his master."

Fresh material[edit]

(for someone more qualified than I). Abu Mohammad al-Maqdisi, the foremost jihadi thinker of our day, claims the Prophet Mohammad condemned polytheists and unbelievers who claimed eating a dead goat who died of its own was ok cause Allah provided it. From this he concludes those who believed this errant teaching, worshiped the lawmakers who changed God's law, and hence modern parliamentary democracy is no different, or something to that effect. nobsIt all depends what ISIS is. 00:09, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

WAKE UP SHEEPLE[edit]

[Dr. An Peischel of Tennesse State University was] quick to point out that some of these “goats” are not, in fact, goats at all. “The individuals making the noises were not all goats,” wrote Dr. Peischel, “There are several sheep involved.”

Mod protection[edit]

Isn't that a bit of an overreaction? Christopher (talk) 17:13, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Also, why doesn't mod protection prevent us lowly sysops from vaporizing an article? I would never delete the holy goat but, even when it's mod protected, I have the technical ability to do so. Christopher (talk) 17:45, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Best Sir or Madam,
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us!
I am happy to report that each of your points has been formally reviewed here.
Thank you in advance for your continued cooperation. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:54, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
But seriously, shouldn't mod protected articles only be deletable by mods? Christopher (talk) 18:09, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
MOOOOOoooooooHamburgerPlate Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 18:11, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
@Christopher I was hoping modlocking would prevent sysop vaporization Facepalm It matters little though, since we're obviously not going to delete our precious goat article.
@CBF Wrong animal, dear. Th hug.gif Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:07, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I meant shouldn't someone change the relevant mediawiki thingy to make modlocking prevent sysop vaporization, not for this case specifically but for whenever a mod modlocks something. Christopher (talk) 20:14, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Put- put your request in it. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:17, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
But why modlock it in the first place? You'd only need autoconfirmed to prevent GreatRational1Person from editing it. Christopher (talk) 20:42, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Because at RationalWiki all goats are equal, but some goats are more equal than others. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:24, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

masonic goat[edit]

can someone add the masonic goat picture https://www.reddit.com/r/freemasonry/comments/5n1qid/so_how_far_back_does_the_goat_joke_go/ https://www.instagram.com/p/z6IKqUmSxr/ there is also a mechanical masonic goat if you google it 101.180.193.48 (talk) 02:39, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

Er, huh?[edit]

I don't understand what this page has to do with the mission of RationalWiki, i.e.

   Analyzing and refuting pseudoscience and the anti-science movement;
   Documenting the full range of crank ideas;
   Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism;
   Analysis and criticism of how these subjects are handled in the media.

It just seems like a silly/sarcastic parody -- e.g. "Conservative Christians often buy goats for Malawi orphans[9] whereas liberals, such as Madonna, prefer to keep Malawi orphans as household pets.[10]" Seriously? How is this helping to debunk anything? It just makes the site look like it wants to be a wiki version of The Onion. — Unsigned, by: 24.59.66.123 / talk / contribs

Yeah, I tend to agree. This article is hardly missional, but good luck having it moved to the fun space, it's a meme here.—HamburgerPlate Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 18:41, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Goat Simulator[edit]

Just visiting. Love the site. Just think you should include this in the Goats in Popular Culture section. It is called goat simulator ( http://goat-simulator.com/ ). It is a computer game where you play as a goat on a rampage. Hey, do not do advertising here. However, yeah it's perfectly silly, stupid but fun. 2A01:E0A:2DE:B400:B033:1E97:BAB8:1D5A (talk) 12:07, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Wizard of Oz[edit]

According to Kenneth Anger (not the most trustworthy source), the land of Oz in the Wizard of Oz books is named after the Hebrew for goat.[7] Can anyone confirm that Oz=goat in Hebrew, because if true it seems it should be mentioned. --Annanoon (talk) 10:33, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Removing goats from Olympic National Park[edit]

People may be attracted to kids or nannies, but it turns out that even bucks are attracted to people because they want to lick our salty skin. Having been introduced to the Olympic Mountains in 1925 to support the convenience of hunters who wanted to kill goats with rifles, mountain goats have proven to be a threat to the vegetation and soils in the park and to sweaty hikers, who find it more difficult than do the goats to leap from crag to crag.
