CALL OFF THE BENEFIT CONCERT FOR GARY THE GOAT

Gary sat calmly outside the Downing Centre Local Court in a rainbow hat this morning as his owner, comedian James "Jimbo" Bazoobi, won his fight against $440 in fines he was issued for damaging vegetation last year.

I bet Australian goats will kill you. Everything else there does.

I am trying to find a column about a man who raced a rocket car on the salt flats. It described everything that happened to the car and driver right up to the moment he crashed into mountain. I'm pretty sure you are the author of this in one of your columns. Could you let me know and possibly tell me where to get a copy?

Darwin Awards aren't in the normal path of this blog. We're a different kind of crazy.

hey, jimbo, how about planting some flowers - kind of kid pro quo?

FREE GARY! FREE GARY! Oh wait, he's a goat. PEN UP GARY! PEN UP GARY!

You've got to be kidding.

(Sorry.)

Ghost riders in the sky, goat riders on the lam? Not anymore though; they threw out the charges.

This seems to me to be just another example of modern laws and police forces trampling on traditional agrarian behavior. At one point, it was commonplace for people to move livestock from one place to another, along public roads and in fact right through downtown areas. Vast numbers of confused, intimidated, and even aggressive animals were not an unusual sight on the streets. Today, you have to wait for rush hour.

Okay, hand up anyone who didn't see that coming.
