OT: McPhee and his Goats

Could somebody please tell me how this whole relationship started?

Its one of those inside jokes that never really went away. When did it turn from a simple post to a story for the legends which will be passed on from generation to generation into folk tale status?

Seriously, what's the story behind all this?

Why? Why ask such question when the questionning part is the best part of if all. No answer will satisfy you.

As an east indian, I enjoy eating goats rather than... well, whatever mcphee does

Well, animal fetishes are commonplace here at HFboards. Another example of that is ShootOut with his sheep.

Didn't he used to have an avatar of a goat? I think that's how it all began. Apparently the picture was taken as a reminder of there magical night together and well, things just spiralled from there.

I'm sure the fact that he really owns a goat farm has absolutely nothing to do with it...

Next you'll be asking about his fishnet stockings. Can't the guy have any privacy?

Hacks, I'll give you the truth. We moved to a rural area in 93 with more land than your average suburban slice of the pie. My wife and kids are animal lovers. Myself ? I like dogs, always thought elephants were cool, but never dwelled on the subject a whole lot.

We acquired a lot of strays, 3 or 4 cats, 2 dogs, got my youngest a few rabbits. The next step was these 'running ducks' that they heard about somewhere. I never had a problem with any of this until my wife saw a picture of these 'pygora goats' that she thought were wonderful. Well, our youngets and her best friend had a birthday and you can figure it out. They soon dominated our lives, what with their escapability rivalling Michael Vick in the pocket.

The humour,imo, is how a dull suburbanite like myself who struggles to drive a nail in straight, has become a goatherder. Sometimes in life you have moments where you just wonder how in hell you got to where you are. I had one last winter when I had to lift my friend Clover and toss her over the fence only to fall backwards,land on my back in the snow, with a heavy goat landing on me.

One of the goats died last September and I can only hope that my own passing evokes such pain in my family. Those that made the obvious souvlaki jokes are being dealt with one by one. We now have a sheep that hangs out with the remaining goat and duck. The obvious jokes about me wearing a kilt so the sound of the zipper doesn't scare the sheep are running their course.


If my count is correct, we currently stand at 2 dogs, 2 indoor cats, 2 barn cats,1 goat, 1 sheep and 1 duck.

You wonder why I make weird jokes on teh internet ? You wouldn't need the escape ? I didn't even mention the 3 seniors, deranged wife and hostile children under my care.

I have 2 sons and one daughter...

I already promised the boys that if anybody bothers their sister , they are to kick the crap outta him, in return I'll buy them a car.

2 girls so we had to teach them to fight, or at least my wife did. I know how to talk my way out of trouble, she hits.

Remember the old joke. I guess neighbouring states make fun of people from Wyoming and their fondness for sheep.

Guy brings a sheep into a Wyoming bar and everyone gasps and is very uncomfortable. Bartender won't serve him. Guy says 'you're all hypocrites,you sneak behind the barn with them but if I bring one out in a date you're all upset ?'

Bartender says,' buddy that's the sheriff's wife'

Thats too funny.

However I cringe when I think about how these myths came about.

2 daughters here. Oldest just turning 13. Looks 19!! #$@$$! Fortunately she's not yet 'into boys'. Unfortunately, I was a 13 year old boy once, so I know what they're thinking! My plan is as follows: Assuming he stops by to pick her up sometime. He gives her a kiss on the cheek (since I'll be standing right there). When she goes to put on her makeup or shoes or whatever, leaving me alone with him, I will go give him a peck on the cheek and quietly and calmly whisper into his ear, "Remember this. Anything you do do my daughter, I do to you." Now, I'm actually a big softie, but I AM big and can 'look' scary, so this should work.

Now a quick joke. feel free to substitute names and animals where you feel fit.

Angus walks into his bedroom with a sheep under his arm. His wife is lying on the bed. He says, "I just wanted to let you know that this is the pig I've been sleeping with whenever you complain about having a headache." His wife says, "Angus, ya dumbarse, you should know that that's a sheep, not a pig!" Angus says to his wife, "And you should know that I wasn't speaking to you!"

...sorry.
