So, we’re back.

After more than a year of grazing pastures and climbing roofs, the Goat staff is back. And by back, I mean we successfully secured our domain name again so we can continue to bring you a degenerate version of the news and share our obscure thoughts.  Many thanks to Nerine for forgetting to renew the Goat so we can get back.

We look forward to entertaining the four fans we have in 2013.  Thanks for believing in us!Image

There Are Better Ways to Start an Armenchick Rumor Labor Day Weekend

2 weeks before Olympics (on Gchat)

Me: Hi, Kastajian (last name changed to protect the innocent)

Kastajian: Hey what’s up?

Me: Nothing.  I was thinking we should start a rumor on the Booze Cruise about Armenchick.

Kastajian: Ha, why?

Me: Cuz it’s funny. We should tell people on the Booze Cruise we saw him in the hotel and he’s performing Sunday night.

Kastajian: lolol, that’s a great idea.

2 weeks later on Booze Cruise, I’m standing with Kastajian and a group of people:

Me: You know what’s crazy, I saw Armenchick in the Hyatt today and someone said he’s performing on Sunday night.

Group of girls: Really????

Kastajian: What? You’re lying.

Me: Wait, huh? No no, Armenchick (winking) is at the Hyatt.  I think he’s performing Sunday night.

Kastajian: Whatever.  I’m gullable usually, but I don’t believe that.

Conversations With Friends About the Economy

Friend: So should I invest in the stock market now?

Me: That’s a pretty loaded question.  You want me to predict where the stock market’s gonna be 6-12 months from now?

Friend: Yeah.

Me: So you want me to figure out what’s going to happen with the Eurozone, Greece, commodity prices, repatriation of corporate profits, the presidential election, taxes, real estate prices… you want me to predict all that and tell you where the economy is headed?

Friend: Yeah.

Me: How bout you finish your fucking beer and not ask me stupid questions.

Times when you shouldn't ask stupid questions.

If you run into her, should you run away or play dead?  FYI, she was fined a mere $2k; that’ll show her.
