The Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation

image Do you suffer from irrational fears, unexplained twitching, or insomnia? If so, then the root of your problems may be childhood goat trauma, probably experienced at a petting zoo. The Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation exists to help you. Their site contains a wealth of information. For instance, did you realize that some malicious goats have learned to climb trees and drop down onto unsuspecting people? Or that there have been reports of roaming urban goats at large? Personally I can't remember ever having been traumatized by a goat... though I can recall a particularly nasty experience involving some geese who mistook my toes for food.

I've had issues with geese as well. I feel that all geese should be used for Christmas dinner.

But...I've always liked goats. The cute pygmy ones are my favorites!

May this trauma be somehow related to goat sacrifice ritual mostly, not to petting zoos?

My family used to raise goats. It was a constant battle for supremacy.

I can't remember clearly, but I think the goats won.

Well I visited Puck's farm when I was 6, and goats are really not friendly, especially when three dozen kindergarteners are poking them. *shudder*
