The Pet Goat

From NPR:
This is how staggeringly pointless the killing in Iraq is getting: shepherds in the rural western Baghdad neighborhood of Gazalea have recently been murdered, according to locals, for failing to diaper their goats. Apparently the sexual tension is so high in regions where Sheikhs take a draconian view of Shariah law, that they feel the sight of naked goats poses an unacceptable temptation. They blame the goats.
A transcript can be found here. And to think, our president was preparing for this way back in 2001!

I think that would something sweet to take goats as a pet. I could plainly recall the flick " Uptown Girls" which stars Brittany Murphy and Dakota. Brittany had a pet pig on that movie.
Why can't we have these kinds of pet anyway? For a change.
