stolen ideas

Hi,

I feel I must warn you that for some time now someone has been trying to steal your (ours) ideas - just click at European PT Cruiser Forum and you will see that the hottest thread there is on a 16 y.o. trying to do exactly what we envisioned for OUR GOAT.

I think we better start looking for sponsors and get the thing going or else the other young thing will simply steal our project, go for it and make it first.

Everybody: which companies should we ask for sponsorship?

I thought of the following potentials:

B&Goat,
Mount Goat Rum,
Goat & Olufsen,

We could also try to get the honorary patronage of the City of Goathenburg, Sweden - they are a sailing nation them vikings, and they love goat cheese.

"Were doing this doggie style..."

Not to be outdone, the canine community has launched it's own challenger. Sponsered by the old Sea Dog McRuff:


Interviewed from the nav station on his 4 masted schooner McRuff noted: "I'm sending Rudy. Rudy left this morning at first light. I hope no one gets their tail in a knot due to Rudy's young age. He's capable and getting the Goat should be easy, and the side benefit is Rudy loves Lamb Chops! Problem is.... he's deathly afraid of Salamanders!

What started out as kidding has gotten a bit long in the tooth. You can't milk a pun this long without sounding cheesy and fetad. If the goat (affectionately "Cabrito") wants to earn his chevrons as a sailor, so be it. Stop trying to curry favor with the goat lobby. If Cabrito succeeds, we'll toast him. If he fails, I say let him stew!

So Rudy looks cute in his hat - looks like a fair weather sailor, lol....here's a Cuban-Canadian entry to the race, Aduana, who knows how to handle a line and, at eight months is certainly young enough to mount a viable challenge. Here she is, tying off to a piling, and afterwards, inspecting her weather gear">foul weather gear.
She's already got considerable sea-time, including a crossing of the Gulf Stream, the ICW and Chesapeake Bay all before she was four months old.
Plus, when stopped in the Keys after coming in from Cuba by some out of line customs and border patrol people (long story here), she peed on the guy's foot while he was busy hassling the crew.
Only problem might be, she's never SEEN a salamander. But she'd likely try to eat it anyway!

One of the rudest and most inappropriate threads on the net.

I see you couldnt help yourself - you had to throw the teeth thing in.

Offensive and not very funny.

Goat Golf Joke

A man takes the day off work and decides to go out golfing. He is on the second hole when he notices a billy goat standing next to the green. He thinks nothing of it and is about to shoot when he hears, "Baahh. 9 Iron" The man looks around and doesn't see anyone. " Baahh. 9 Iron."

He looks at the billy goat and decides to prove him wrong, puts his other club away, and grabs a 9 iron. Boom! He hits it 10 inches from the cup. He is shocked.

He says to the billy goat, "Wow that's amazing. You must be a lucky goat, eh?" The billy goat reply's " Baahh. Lucky goat."

The man decides to take the billy goat with him to the next hole. "What do you think goat?" the man asks. " Baahh. 3 wood."

The guy takes out a 3 wood and Boom! Hole in one. The man is befuddled and doesn't know what to say. By the end of the day, the man golfed the best game of golf in his life and asks the billy goat, "OK where to next?" The billy goat reply, " Baahh. Las Vegas."

So, they go to "Las Vegas and the guy says, "OK goat, now what?" The billy goat says, " Baahh. Roulette." Upon approaching the roulette table, the man asks, " What do you think I should bet?" The billy goat replies, " Baahh. $3000,black 6."

Now, this is a million to one shot to win, but after the golf game, the man figures what the heck. Boom! Tons of cash comes sliding back across the table.

The man takes his winnings and buys the best room in the hotel. Once in the hotel room the man says "Goat, I don't know how to repay you. You've won me all this money and I am forever grateful." "Just name it and it is yours." The billy goat replies, " Baaah, Kiss Me."

He figures why not, since after all the goat did for him, he deserves it. With a kiss, the billy goat turns into a gorgeous 15-year-old girl.

".... And that, your honor, is how the girl ended up in my room."



What's for Dinner?

The young couple invited their elderly pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having.

"Goat," the little boy replied.

"Goat?" replied the startled man of the cloth, "Are you sure about that?"

"Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner.'
