yabu - if you have a council ouse you qualify for 5 goats and a cow

I can't afford the ice for the polar bear. Or the fucking glacier mints.

Goats are so last year.

Yak is the new goat.

get 24 chickens instead. Then each one will feed your family for a fortnight, and you can give some of your Safety Net™ money scrounged from hard-working bankers back to the government.

You're so common. Everyone knows goats are so 2013. Alpaca is the way to go, it's the new black.

Goat insists on 60" plasma. Of course.

We are so over the goats now - its all about the micropig!

Goats are specifically excluded in the deeds of our ex-council house smile

Would this be a good thread on which to ask someone to explain the goats and benefits reference to me please? Is it to do with kids?

i keep my goat in the kitchen but we're privately owned. i was thinking of trading him in for an alpaca but he matches the bespoke kitchen units.

Fuck the lot of you.

I OWN a house

Poor disadvantaged goat. ONLY 60''?

MY guinea pig/goat hybrid has a 6ft2 TV.

GoodNews Thread a long time ago where the goady fucker OP said benefit scroungers "get [her] goat". People decided to take her literally grin

wannabedomesticgoddess Tue 31-Dec-13 22:37:26

I think someone once said "it gets on my goat" when talking about benefits.

And it stuck.

GoGoveGo Tue 31-Dec-13 22:38:34

YABU, everybody knows they eat anything so your benefits cheques are at risk if the postman drops them in your garden.

FracturedViewOfLife Tue 31-Dec-13 22:39:13

I want to know where everyone is getting these goats from!

It's the UK version of 'adopt a goat' - the upper classes can resolve their guilt at being filthy rich and can choose to have the goat given to a family on benefits instead of to an African village.
