Many thanks to Glyn Webster for alerting me to this exciting headline:
Fears for goat-man in Utah wild herd
I cannot help wondering if the fellow togged up as a goat might be related to the goat-boy in that favourite children’s rhyme, which I am sure all Hooting Yard readers have by heart:
Incey-wincey goat-boy, creature of two realms.
We can see you darting in between the elms.
Half of you is human, the other half’s a goat.
Incey-wincey goat-boy, drowning in a moat.
I wonder why no enterprising impresario has ever attempted to put a goat-boy band together?
Congratulations, OSM – you just typed the 3000th Hooting Yard comment.
