The Childhood Goat Truama Foundation. All your childhood carpinae-based nightmares are belong to them. (just a brief reprieve from election coverage - via the ultimate insult)

This is a more serious issue than you might think. I myself was chased up a chain-link fence by one of these monsters in the children's zoo at the Bronx Zoo when I was eight, and the effects of that horrific encounter are still with me to this day. Bush has done nothing about the Goat Menace facing this country in his four years in office.

Luckily, Kerry has a plan.

is this one of those hipster musical groups?

i was never attacked as a child, but as a young adult i saw how ornery goats can be. petting zoos don't let kids get close to adult goats, do they? that seems kinda dangerous.

I couldn't figure out if it was in earnest or not until I looked at the Goat Trauma in Action page. The pictures and captions are worth a look.

Yeah, I was half-convinced that it was a legit site, until I saw this:

Stay alert. Goats are deceitful and can hide just about anywhere.
Stay in civilized areas. While there have been reports of roaming urban goats, most attacks by loose goats take place in less populated areas.

Funny, whimsical stuff!

I love the creative use of mouseovers.

I dunno, seems more like a death-polka band to me, but I'd see 'em live regardless.

We have recently learned that goats have learned to climb trees and drop down onto unsuspecting people.

Beware the dreaded arboreal goat!

Funny, I too have been traumatized by a goat. Or my parents. I grew up with a pet goat, and he was cool. But they buchered him and served him to me in a stew.


Never did eat it, they ended up giving most of the meat away.

Fortunately, some kids know how to fight back.
