At work today I was talking to one of the tech guys about how we want to get a goat*. He suggested I could just let it roam free about the property and it would eat things with wild abandon. Which would be great, if, you know, we didn't have coyotes on the property that also tend to eat (living) things with wild abandon.
"Oh, that's simple!" he proclaimed, "All you need is a Goat Laser Protection System."
"Um, why don't you draw that up for me, Dean."
*Dean and I go way back, are excellent friends and tend to talk about all manor of things, so discussing a goat isn't that odd for me and the Tech guy to be doing.
