Voting Booth

Crumpet is launching her new line of famous goat products shortly and a famous designer is creating her first t-shirt but there is a fly in the ointment. It hasn't been decided whether the Crumpet t-shirt should say "T.M.F.G.I.T.W." (the most famous goat in the world) on the back or whether it should say G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time.)

One of the farmer's friends said it can't say G.O.A.T. on the back because there are already a lot of people using that including LL Cool J who isn't a very good singer in our opinion in fact I would rather listen to Crumpet play the drums but that is another story. Pinky said so what who cares we can do what we want and those people aren't goats anyway and they are probably not the greatest of all time either which I thought was actually quite sensible especially coming from someone who enjoys banging her head against the wall in her free time which let's face it all her time is free. But then you know what they say, everybody is a critic. Throw a rock, hit a critic.

So we decided to put it to a vote.

Go ahead and vote.

In other news Betty's sister Cora Belle who lives over at Minter Bay despite not being the most famous goat in the world managed to milk 1300 pounds on her milk test this year and so she will probably be one of the Top Ten Nigerian milkers in the country. Unless another fly gets in the ointment which is pretty much all the flies seem to want to do.  But they can't change the fact that she milked 1300 pounds even with missing a few days and not trying very hard and honestly she can do much better but anyway congratulations to GCH Herron Hill CJ Cora Belle *M, I hope she doesn't get any more titles because her name is already about a foot long. Maybe some day she will get her own t-shirt.

As for me give me liberty or give me death. But seriously, give me liberty.

Please exercise your patriotic rights by voting in the **Crumpet Poll.


*M that just means star milker
**I forgot to mention Crumpet has her own page now if you want to visit it.

Yea! Crumpet merchandise is coming! I hope the t-shirt will have a photo of her because I noticed that her own page does not have a photo of her which is just plain wrong but then who asked me? I am voting for TMFGITW and even if it doesn't win I hope it will be selected instead of GOAT because that is what Crumpet is. Her title is TMFGITW not GOAT according to previous posts. I say let's just stop the voting and go with my opinion which you really should have asked first and also I hope the t-shirt is turquoise.

Clearly we have an "AMOK" going on and no one is going to step in and try and stop it. I have thought for some time now that this is where this blog was headed.

Great morning chuckle! :)

Now, I must say that I have to Vote GOAT as TMFGITW will make some people think you are a chain restaurant, which you are not. But if you were, you could invent a drink and call it Fly in the Ointment. Though probably people would be afraid to drink it which is good because then they could buy your t-shirts instead. :)

Looking forward to either decision.

Have a fun and creative day!

Why not use both? You could put T.M.F.G.I.T.W. on the back, and G.O.A.T. on the front, as a caption, or in the upper corner like a logo.

And for the record, we don't care what color the T-shirts are, as long as they have a lot of X's.

Marigold said...

Clearly Chickory Blossom has a superior mind. Amok...amok...AMok...AMOk...AMOK!!!! ought to be on there somewhere too because as was pointed out by anonymous that IS where this blog actually is at and not headed there already because let's face it it accomplished this a very long time ago and deserves 5 stars for that. I like turquoise too. And come to think of it, shouldn't there be a Peanut on it somewhere? The sleeve would be nice.

'um. I have2already vot2d, but I 2ssume that 2 may vote a2 unlimited 2umber of ti2es due to t2e fact that2this is an 2MOK officia2ly sanction2d and verif2ed? (Wh2 does this 2ound famili2r?)

IF Crumpet were truly the most famous goat in the world, surely she would need neither TMFGITW nor GOAT to advertise the fact. Just CRUMPET would do. Or just a photo. Or even just her hoof print.

I think my mind has run- amok. Crumpet can stand on her own, she looks like a goat, so who needs it spelled out to them. I can see her picture with a cape on that says, SUPER CRUMPET, as it streams out over her back, and letters on her chest SC (of course that logo should look like Supermans logo). She is standing on a large peanut missile with flames coming out the back. Then across the top of the t shirt it says WORLD FAMOUS

Who needs to employ the services of a famous designer when you have all these blog friends to help you out? What I am seeing is a variety of t-shirts. Marigold, Goat Girls Rule and Missy the Goat have all made fine suggestions. Why do only one shirt? I see at least 3 in the making here. I want one of each!

It is now totally clear that everyone on this blog runs with scissors. In keeping with this fact perhaps the Crumpet logo should be a caricature of a blind goat carrying a fly swatter in one cloven hoof and a scissors in the other.
Emblazoned on the front the words:

Not Your Ordinary G.O.A.T

and on the back a simple


should tie it all together nicely. This will express the spirit of the blog, its contributors AND single out Crumpet as the official representative of all of it. THAT should make her famous!!!

Karen C said...

Well, I'm partial to G.O.A.T., but then again I actually like LL Cool J and that way he's always licking his lips as if his chapstick is a really delicious flavor. Did no one see his subtle nuanced turn as a police officer in "S.W.A.T."? So do what you will with my vote, maybe count it as 1/2 a vote.

I would just like to encourage the farmer to focus on the leaking roof of the cottage and the cabana. If broken down into do-able pieces, it is possible to correct these.

Peeling paint and leaking houses can cause one to focus on other things when it all seems too much. Like t-shirts for goats, you know?

Maybe just a tarp would take care of the cabana roof? If the cottage roof needs major repair or replacement, be brave, it has been done before. Call in an honest roofer and see what the news is. Be brave. You don't have to live this way.

We have been watching that CoraBelle for a while now, we think she is a rock star. Don't tell Crumpet.
