Quote of the Day:

I'm yammering away with Editor Amazing today, catching up on several projects we have in common.

The conversation turns to a Publishing BigWig.

Editor: "Some malcontent was trying to tell me some salacious piece of gossip about BigWig's nocturnal activities the other day, but frankly, who cares. He's just too nice a guy to care about crap like that."

Me: "He could have carnal knowledge of a goat in the public square and I wouldn't care. I adore him."

Editor: "As long as it's not my goat, me either."

That made me laugh out loud. Love it. Also, adore the phrasing -- although, I may never look at a goat the same way, again. ~Ali

The quote and the picture - what a great picture - had me laughing out loud, too.

I read a blog over the weekend about the 5 most scandalous sex scenes, which you didn't know existed, in Harry Potter. It too featured a goat. Are goats the new vice for Publishing big wigs? What's ever happened to booze and divorce?

Ha! Goats, a public square and nocturnal activities. The opening to a bad joke or a bestselling novel (as long as no goats are harmed in the process).

As long as someone does their job well and isn't doing anything illegal, I don't see why the public cares so much about their personal lives. Publishing bigwigs, politicians...who cares?

@Jesse: I saw that same article and nearly died laughing!

At a paranormal conference the main speaker asked if anyone had experienced a sexual encounter with a ghost. After a few minutes an old man in back of the auditorium reluctantly raised his hand. The thrilled speaker asked him to come to the stage. Once there, the old man was asked to describe his experience with his ghost.

The old man looked confused and then said, "Oh. No,I thought you were asking about a goat."

Dangit. part of that went missing. let's try again:

Bill E. Goat: What!? Is there supposed to be something wrong with goats? We have romance in our soul ...

Me: Bill, there's nothing wrong with goats ... that a bath and whiskey won't cure.

Bill: I think I'm offended. ...

Me: Sorry, Bill ... That was baaaad.

Bill: Now I know I'm offended.

Although, that's a very attractive goat!

Goats can't sue you and take half of your crap.

Reminds me of the joke about "camel night" at the foreign legion...

My $0.03.

Maybe even if it IS my goat, if he's that good. :P
