Miracle Mac

If you are a person and you break your leg you have to waddle around for months with a cast. This is bad because you only have two legs. And one of them is broken. So half your legs are broken, and you were probably slow and ungainly to begin with. No offense to you, but you know what I mean.

I have seen people who were three or four or five times taller than a Nigerian, and they cannot even jump over a fence as tall as their middle. It's sad. Very sad.

Whereas Aunt Hannah Belle, who is 23 inches tall at the withers, used to be able to jump five feet before her waistline expanded. Now she can only jump four.

Anyway Mac the baby goat broke his leg ten days ago. Yesterday they took the cast off.

Fixed. One more example of goat superiority.

Without those thumbs, the people species would have died out a long time ago.

But, even thumbs do not balance out the charm, personality, wit and intelligence of a good, solid Nigerian.

Well, I had better not introduce you to Caper, who is the least-agile goat in the history of goatdom. He tumbled off an Adirondack chair today, and he wasn't even embarrassed. Is there a remedial goat school that he can go to?

Marigold said...

I quite agree. Thumbs are highly over-rated.

I'll take my horns over thumbs any day. Quite handy for many tasks, like scratching your own back.

Yang said...

Not to mention, thumbs can break, too. Then where are those ego-inflated humans at?

Oh! Poor little Mac! Thank goodness he's okay! Just a did he break it?
