On second thought, let's just pet the bunnies

The goat has never been accused of being a majestic creature. With their strangely shaped pupils, their tendency to eat everything and a general taste for destruction, they are really the black sheep (hahaha) of the grazing animal world.

I'm reminded of goats and their lack of grace and dignity by the return of the Alameda County Fair. The Fair is one of my favorite places. Rides, carnival games, pig races and petting zoos -- goats included -- make for an event that turns me into a five-year-old.

Recently, I came across a video of goats being goats. Or rather, being less like goats and more like people.

A couple of these remind me of my neighbor Steve after my visiting relatives parked their car in front of his house.
