The Unmentionables

From the amount of publicity received, you might think there is only one goat living here, the Bitter Pill. That is not the case.

There are quite a few goats here who never get their names in the paper because they don't go to shows (Betty) and aren't the oldest (Brandy) or the youngest (Clementine), or the biggest (Betsy Bigoletto), or the sweetest (Jammies), or the fastest (Rosie). Or the most intellectually challenged (this is a photo finish between the apple and the tree, Pinky and her mother Tangy).

There is Eo, still plotting against The Empire. When you see Eo on her little hill sometimes you can tell she is thinking,  "I could burn this place down."

There is Penrose the Kindly.

There is Hannah Belle the magnificent, the matriarch now of the Nigerian herd, and Baby Belle's oldest daughter.

Also there is Pinky Jr. a bridesmaid in many categories (2d biggest, 2d sweetest e.g.) but never a bride.

Also Xie Xie, let's not forget her triumph at the state fair, and what about those little black mini-manches, what are their names, anyway?

If I of all goats can celebrate these poignant nobodies, I don't see why you can't. Let's all raise a glass of milk to the unmentionables, toiling in obscurity.

To the Nobodies! You know who you are! I applaud you!

You are wrong. Everybody is somebody. It may be, however, that not everybody knows that they are somebody, or even anybody. But nobody really cares.

This is hilarious, it cracks me up! Now that I've discovered this blog, I cannot live without my daily goat :>}

Since when is it not enough to 'simply be'? Why must everything be a competition?

Yay to those not willing to play the game!!!!!

A toast to the unmentionable, obscure Nobodies! Thank you for mentioning them to us.

Once again, Baby Belle has gone where no other goat (and many humans) could even imagine.
