The Goat Man in the Wasatch Mountains (Read 895 times)

xor


    There's a dude hanging with the mountain goats in the Wasatch Mountains.

     

    Dressed in a goat suit.

     

    He was spotted and photographed, sasquatch-like.

     

    If anyone is running Wasatch 100 or something out there, be on the lookout.

     

    Alas, it will be goat hunting season soon.

     

      I wonder what his story is.

        "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

         

        "A goat."

         

        "...you can't be a goat."

         

        "You wait and see."

         

        You know, like this.  But more mountain-y.  Presumably less violent.

        "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

          in training for best costume at Ragnar?

           

          Although I think now a Ragnar team should definitely incorporate some goat costumes into their fashion attire line-up or van decorating theme.

           

          eta: ahhh, too late. Ragnar was last month. timing is everything.

            There's always a ragnar somewhere.  The Washington State one was just this past weekend.

             

              "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

               

              "A goat."

               

              "...you can't be a goat."

              My three year old son decided today that he was a shark when we were swimming.  He then proceeded to bite me in the ass.  Damn shark.

                This probably goes without saying, but your son is freaking awesome.

                  "goatman" ?   that is truly one of the wierdest stories I have ever herd


                  Needs more cowbell!

                    I'm totally laughing out loud (for realz) at the imagery.  3 year olds rock!

                     

                    A friend of ours just returned from UT yesterday, so he was in the state on the date in question.  Needless to say he's catching some shit for it.

                          As he is a hunter, sneaking up on wee little goats to kill them, he kind of is!

                           

                          I was kind of hoping it was going to be a hippie thing, but with a better outcome than that dude in Alaska who was convinced he could live with Grizzlies.  And did.  For awhile.  And then took his girlfriend with them.  And then they got et.

                           

                          Edit: I have no idea why I capitalized Grizzlies.  It's not like he went to Memphis to live with the basketball team.

                            Maybe the chupacabra will get him! That would be appropriate.
