i just remembered a festival i went to in ireland as a child, the main attraction of which is a live goat on a really tall platform and you look at the goat and go "wow that goat's really high up"

i had to google it to make sure it wasn't something from a father ted episode but it's real - it's called puck fair, they crown a goat "king puck" and keep him up there for THREE DAYS

@envgen I had to look this up to check if it was the 400th Puck Fair, or if they had the goat 400 feet up

@envgen this sounds like a thing that only really bored Islanders could come up with

@envgen is this what people do all day in Ireland. Is this their idea of a good time.

@envgen Which king were they so dissatisfied with to make an attraction from crowning a goat?

@envgen You know you're doing well when you have to check something isn't from Father Ted, The IT Crowd, or Blackadder

@envgen they fly it in on a helicopter these days. King puck.

I use this all the time when I play "two truths and a lie" with non-Irish people. I've never been to the festival though...

some day...
