Ahhh! Now I get it! So that's where the term "goatee" comes from. It's funny how goatees on men give them a bit of a sinister look, but on a goat, with their bedroom eyes and pink smiles, they just look darlin'.
The reason goatees look so sinister? When Christianity came into fashion, they borrowed a lot of imagery from pagan myths. In medieval and renaissance art, Satan was depicted in Pan's imagery, who had a goatee. Isn't it funny how these images settle into our memories and resurface as vague and not really logical feelings?
Sometimes Mr. Wild Dingo grows a goatee. And he looks so badass. But next time he grows one, I'm just gonna remember these guys here, instead of Pan or Satan. I can't wait to tell him how adorable and cuddly he looks with his facial hair. I'm so betting he'll be thrilled to hear that.
"Ah, they don't look so badass to me Mom. In fact, they look a lot like... dinner."
And for your music-video pleasure, here's a little do-hickey goat training video I put together on socializing the Cracker and the Criminal with goats.
