Interesting If True: Give 'Em The Goat!
"Well. Today we're going to feature a pig in a couple of jack asses you and me sadly this week show is one jack short. So in steve. Stead give you a fantastic tale of a canadian war donkey. Sergeant bill billy goat. He's done a donkey. He's a goat that's true. That's true those animals are not related but that joke necessitated me not knowing that out. I didn't know a word of war donkey was a thing. i guess. That's what this brings us to the i. It turns out that goats and donkeys lake together are the next two animals that are most popular as mascots after dogs and cats like military brands. And things like that okay. Cool actually i. i read recently. Something about donkeys goats goats donkeys goats being like the next fully domesticated house animals. Dogs were like that's been theorized. I don't mind goats that much but they are less cuddly. they've got horns and hooves heightens if your wife got her hands on a pygmy goat. It would be living in sleeping in bed with you and you know it awesome awesome. I sure i'm glad we don't know anybody who has a of goats and jim through glad. I don't know the code to get into your house to leave all those bunches of go. So our story begins in august of nineteen fourteen. Which for those interested started on. Thursday for greg and a wednesday for julian saw charlie chaplin's debut film making a living and that kerfluffle europe was having was picking up steam. I love your many history lessons kind of one of my favorite thing. They're they're they're good. That's important stuff to know. Don't you know and that brings us to broadview a small town in saskatchewan with a goat. Was anyone living in canada. Nineteen fourteen other than this guy with a goat. Yeah there were. All dave was a weird weird. Oh yeah i know david. He's a good guy. I met him down morton. Timmy's he's a buddy friend. Hoya on august twenty third. The soldiers of the freshly formed. V western cavalry expeditionary force had stopped in broadview to pick up some recruits. Wow queuing for the train spotted a girl with a goat. her name was also dave evans. Also dave develop. It's a nice day and wanting it for good luck charm and also because it was nineteen fourteen and you could just take stuff from people. They took the goat from young deasy. Kerr wayne to make it their mascot. They just they said sewri a ton a ton but they still took her took her so sorry. So this is art goto. Yes sorry. Dave oh so. Sorry so sorry. Davis zarko sources all agree. That daisy agreed. Soldiers could have it but there's never any mention of payment or how a group of soldiers from nineteen fourteen demanding a little girl give or pet to the war effort might have influenced her willingness to part with billy. Frankly i find it all suspect. I'm pretty sure some dude stole. They stole it from a little girl. I'm pretty sure they very politely stole ago. Do you think during the war. They'd like they'd like have a really easy missionary. Like god that was like stealing from a little girl right and then with the advent of candy after yield got over being terrible pre stealing candy from babies it was stealing goats from girls So so private. Bill was now properly conscripted. He lived in trained with the fifth in canada and their base. In england they pay for bill to cross the pond. They flew across the pond. Yeah yeah okay which was apparently quite some doing because when we get to the other goat like the british weren't big fans of foreign goats. I didn't. I would have thought so one of those things you don't think about but apparently it was a big deal so the fifth would soon be deployed to the front and i guess no mascots were allowed in the trenches just as like a general rule to the goat is something. They're gonna aim for all around the goat operation. Mutton went well the sheep but whatever so as you can imagine. This didn't set well. With the boys. The fifth who like many other regiments and both world wars found a creative way to endanger the life of their dear animal. Caban gosh do. They put him in a trench coat. Dress them up like a like a general. Like talk to general billy that way he will die. There was some officer related headbutting. We'll get into so according to sergeant herald baldwin author of holding the line quote. We cannot part with billy. The boys argued that we could easily get another colonel but it was too far to the rocky mountains to get another goat. I love that all right. all right. you can't fault as lodge racks tracks. The difficulty was continuing the quote. The difficulty was solved by buying a huge creative oranges from a woman who was doing brisk trade with the boys. I assume that doesn't mean she's a whore but she might be an orange for. Two-horse consists of bricks brisk trade. She was throwing oranges or briskly trading and tundra a continuing. The oranges sold like hotcakes. And in a jiffy. The orange box was converted into a creighton billy with shanghaied into the crate and smuggled aboard the trade. God that poor go-to person was stolen from a bomb. A tiny little girl that it was forced to train in battle and then it was stuffed in a box and then they put it in a box on a train and sent it to world war. One this is a tragic story. Eric why are you bringing such tragedy. This is this is just to say this is not having a great day so there you go now. You're a goat and just like a certain young naive aristocrat from famous askari. You're lost in a world wind of action intriguing warm beer. At least there's beer. Which apparently the soldiers beer rations and paperwork were apparently his favorite foods. All right at least. He got his paper foods. Yeah right like that could have been a lot worse and bill. You know you would go on to have a distinguished career for a goat. Are i mean you know more seriously. Though at this to sound a goat mix. I believe will. Apparently the british called it wires. Bill was found in a shell crater standing over a wounded russian soldier despite having his own shrapnel wounds guard goat guards you. Wow i what how would you feel oppression soldier waking up to a goat standing over your body protecting you in a shell crater. Lucky to be waking up yeah. I don't know what i would do. I would worship goats. I would worship right. I felt like i was trying to take an. It's gotta be warmer under the goat than it is under fire as yes later in the second battle of apis oh private. Bill stood his ground with brave canadian soldiers. Now famous for not retreating from germany's first major deployment of poison gas and despite what should have been a goat ending toxic cloud. He was found the next day no worse for wear like went on tin helmet or something like that some around ten helmet using their their orders. Then yeah that's right off orders. Just he really must have got their goat. Sheep goat for his steadfast valor. He was promoted officially to the rank of sergeant and february of nineteen fifteen at nouveau chappel. So that's nice. it's a good one. I feel like a for a goat. That's a good

"And the story. You're about to hear it takes place in nineteen seventeen but almost everything that happens in. It feels like it could have happened this week. Basically it starts with this young doctor john. Brinkley he's just married the love of his life many and they decided to go find a place where they can just settle down. He's going to be a town doctor and then they set out for kansas because they see an advertisement that says milford kansas population. Three thousand when you doctor. And they're like okay. We'll go west. So they travel west get milford and three thousand was a typo in fact it was population. Three hundred which say it's like the middle of nowhere. There's nobody there. This is penny lane. She's a filmmaker. She made a documentary about john brinkley. Brinkley moved to milford and they set up shop. This elderly farmer named bills. It's worth comes into the office and you know after much hemming hiring kind of manages to spit out his problem. Which is that. He's a flat tire Get it get it you know and finally the brinkley's like oh. You're impotent okay. Gotcha i'm so sorry. We have nothing for that. Like modern medical science has not solved. That problem. I'm very sorry according to brinkley. What happens next is that he and the former get into small talk and they start talking about goats talking about. How goats never seem to be impotent. They're always zero. And the farmer says something to brinkley. That will change his life. he says. Gosh it's too bad. I don't have billy goat nuts and then brinkley laughs. And then after hours of brinkley's saying no i didn't learn that in medical school. That's not how we do. Things that might now work could be dangerous. The farmer infuses to leave until brinkley agrees to try to fix impotence by giving him go testicles. There's the strangest eureka moment so then of course he tries it and it works. It works according to brinkley. Brinkley tells the world that he has created the goat gland cure. Meaning he will take goat testicles. Insert them into your scrotum and you'll be healed and not just of impotence either. He says it'll cure flatulence emphysema stomach cancer. He's got a version for women which he says will cure female infertility. I talked to this redder. Pope brock who wrote a book about brinkley charlton. He said that when patients came to bring you get the surgery it was set up so that the patients would know that they were getting exactly what they paid for right so the patient was it was local anesthetic so that he could be assured that was actually getting the goat and then Many brinkley usually brinkley's wife would do the snipping on the goat. They would bring the goat balls over opened a guy up toss them in so him up and send him out so just to be clear. This surgery is bogus utterly bogus and privately. Brinkley knows this but he's extremely good. Commencing the public that he believes in what he's selling that goat gland surgery really works. It helps that he looks extremely professional. He's got a three piece suit. He's got round glasses. This neat blonde goatee. He's everybody's idea of what a smart doctor looks like. And so they start showing up at the clinic. These nervous guys ready for the surgery their own goats in tau like you bring the you want this just clutched in your arms and your pounding on the door About pretty soon he He got his own heard out back. Because it was you know was a volume business. By that point the patient would come out browse the herd and pick one the the the goat with which he felt the most connection you know whatever. He felt simpatico. That's the good he. He chose lobster at a restaurant exactly exactly exactly so. Business is booming. Brinkley has found a great scheme. Because what happens is there are men who are impotent. Who get the surgery. And because there are evidences psychological diplo cbo effect saves them and they thanked dr brinkley and for the men that it doesn't work on their generally too ashamed to say anything about it so no matter what he wins

It looked like a pitchfork emerging from his brain blood trickle down from his forehead. Eric, roared and continued the attack. He wasn't going to wait around for Frederick this time he swung the club around again but the goat duct just below his wild swing Eric had missed his follow through sent him tumbling off the edge he managed to grab the bridge and pull his body back up but Frederick stabbed him again this time sticking his broken horn into the side of the trolls head.

With his good I saw Frederick, charge forward ready for one final deathblow. Eric reached for his club, but it was too far. He couldn't stop Frederick nothing would stand in the goats way.

"Coming up arrogant Frederick come face to face now back to the story. After facing off with the to gruff kids Johan Ludvig Eric decided to have mercy on them both he let them pass over his bridge and enjoy his berries but their father Frederick Gruff would be coming by next and new father gruff wouldn't easily backed down. Eric Sat on the bridge watching the Mid Day Sun dance off the water below while it wasn't nearly as comfortable or as convenient as his life in the village he had more than most in this world he had fresh water shade, the occasional fish plus all the berry wine he could drink. He wished things were different that he and the goats could share the land but he knew sharing and conservation weren't really in their nature. The goats were pure consumers they were greedy to their very core. The thought flashed through Eric's mind. Maybe, I should just give them the hillside. He didn't know if the rumors that Frederick had killed a troll were true. But if he was capable of burning down Eric's house, he was probably capable of murder and was it worth dying over some berries but eric could hear Ludvig and Johann chomping their way through his berry patch eating more than they should. He should have known that they weren't going to listen to him. They only listen to their old man. There was nowhere else for Eric to go. He had to stand his ground and fight the patriarch off. Eric jumped off the bridge splashing into the water below he rinsed his Weinstein Lips and washed his face. The cool water provided a nice relief from the hot summer. Sun. If this was going to be Eric's last day on this earth, he wanted to look his best. After soaking in the creek for a few minutes, the troll dragged himself out of the water and back toward the bank, he took another swig of wine and waited under the bridge. But. Soon, the sun sank lower and lower and the day quickly faded away maybe ludvig lied. Eric thought maybe the biggest of the billy goat gruff wasn't coming at all. But just then a deep loud cry echoed across the hills he heard trees grown and would crack under heavy. Hugs. It could only mean one thing Frederick Gruff was near. Eric took his last sip of wine and sat the bottle down. He closed his eyes and cradle the club in his hand it was almost time. A? Gold Hope pressed on the boards above him they sagged down under the massive weight when Frederick neared Eric raised the club above him and banged against the bottom of the bridge three times.

His hands were still shaking from his confrontation with Johann. He never dreamed the time would come when he would have pity on one of the graphs but the emaciated Johan laid bare the reality of the situation there was no more food. The billy goats had finally eaten everything Eric should've known eventually they'd end up at his bridge, their greed made it inevitable eric took another drink of wine and laid his head back on the soft sand of the bank before he confronted Ludvig, he wanted a moment of rest. After some time the bridge above him creaked at Eric's is instinctively shot open holds it was another goat. Steps were heavier this time the gate slower they were already at the middle of the bridge ludvig.

"It wasn't true that trolls couldn't be out during the daytime. That was just another vicious rumor that floated around. But Eric Did love walking at night he he didn't care if it was stereotypical of his kind the night suited him. He tried not to look out into the fields as he walked by it would make him more depressed. They used to be filled with wheat and cabbage vegetation as far as the I could see. Now it was just scavenging billy goats. He could see them moving through the night they combed through the refuse clearing out whatever scraps were left over get out of here you filthy troll. Johan shouted again, he was right on Eric's heels leading a mob of goats chasing him out of town but Eric was glad to go. He never wanted to see Johann or any of the other groff's ever again. Eric new traveling at night wasn't safe for most but at eight feet tall and six hundred pounds, he had a distinct size advantage unless he ran into a bear or a wandering giant, he would be safe. Erik walked through the night without stopping. He was exhausted and hungry the sun peaked across the mountain filling the valley with Golden. Light? Eric stopped in his tracks, his pack fell off his shoulder he couldn't believe his eyes. It was a lush green valley untouched by giant or goat tall pine trees along the road blocked a steep drop off to a peaceful creek below blackberry bushes filled the far hillside across from him. The billy goats must not know about this place Eric set out loud. It was the only way he could justify how such a beautiful place was left in such pristine condition. Eric looks down the hillside to the creek below it was too steep to walk, but he could slide. Eric dropped to his rather large rump and slid all the way to the bottom.

A thing happened trolls were used to being the object of scorn. It was always the trolls fault. It wasn't the adorable if mischievous fairies or the terrifying giants of the north, it was certainly never the goats fault know when things went wrong eric knew he would be the one to blame. Trolls were always made to bear the brunt of human scorn and eight feet Tall Eric made for an easy target. But it wasn't his fault it was the greedy goats day and night they had roamed through the fields and the forest eating. Every single thing they could reach, and with the way they climbed that was pretty much everything and so of course, there was a famine. But the goats didn't take any of the blame for the lands destruction. Instead, the humans just heaped corn on Eric. He was the ugly troll they blamed him for cursing the village.

The Sandy Bank under the bridge wasn't nearly as comfortable as his old bed, but it was the best he could do these days. He stepped out of the shadow of the wooden bridge and into the scorching Saen it didn't help his hangover. Eric leaned over the creek and splashed his face. There wasn't a fish in site.

His entire being was defined by the ridicule he'd faced from the goats bay hated the trolls call them ugly stupid and lazy when Eric's home was burned down no one shed a tear. The goats cheered. He'd been living under this bridge ever since the bleating was getting closer eric quickly washed his mouth out with water and spit back into the creek.

"So a correlation happens once say, you are in your car and you honk your car horn and a dog down the street howls. So first time that happens, that's just an event then say it happens again. You honky second time and the dog howls again. And now the pattern detection software and your brain sort of goes on high alert. You're like, oh, is is something going on here and say, if you do it a third time you honk again, dog howls again, you have established a pattern now, you know, you kind of know your brain works this way. If something is correlated three times you have discovered a meaningful pattern, you've discovered a law. This is true, and this pattern of threes is exactly what the pattern of threes and jokes takes advantage of. You know how there's always a pattern of three jokes. You L. like if there's a three men walk into a bar, Joe call, three of them are going to say something and have a, you know something a pattern will be established with what happens to the first two men. And then something weird will happen with what the third one says or what happens to them in what's happening there is because there's a similarity with the first two things. You're expecting the third one to match the pattern of the first two. And by subverting your expectations. When we see what happens to the third guy in the bar, it's almost like you're violating taboo. You know your subverting somebody's expectation that they are going to discover a pattern of correlations or a law. Yeah. And of course, we see this in so many different tales as well. I mean, it's the, it's the you see what the three Billy goat gruff. Exactly. And in Goldilocks coming in and trying to three porridge bowls, the three beds, etc. Totally exactly. So three is the number of times something happens, where anecdote and then repeated anecdote become phenomena. And so I suspect since one of the highest function. Of our brain is pattern recognition in three occurrences of an event or correlation is what it usually takes for us to feel like we have confidently established pattern. The number three is in some sense, kinda hard coded into us. It's like a powerful indicator of significance in regularity in nature. In our minds, three becomes the number of law. So anyway, that's my guess I, I wonder if we we're, you know, we're suckers for three pronged instruments, which seems like such a mundane and kinda dumb thing to be obsessed with the magical powers of because threes are inherently holy and powerful in our minds because of are pattern seeking nature. Yeah, I like this idea too of power being positioned in the three and three. Like if you have three individuals voting on something, then there is an ability for for two of them to agree in wanted to disagree, and there still is a decision. If you have three individuals in a yoga class, then everyone has. Plausible deniability if someone farts safety in numbers. Yeah, once you have three, you have a group? Yes. But anyway, maybe we should leave depart the realm of of religion and magic and psychology, and go back to the gritty reality of tools and weapons. Because when I think of tridents in the real world and not as clutched by God's, I definitely think of gladiatorial combat, yes. You think of the rhetoric or net fighter, one of the key types of gladiators who fought with the Trident, a net awaited net and a dagger. Now, of course, there were various different types of gladiators that that the Romans would use these gladatorial sports, right? They were each one was a character armed with with some some array of weapons and armor, and then they would engage in in combat. I am continually astonished every time. I really think about. The idea of of gladiatorial games and astonished when I realized, okay, so this was real fighting to the death in many cases like they were actually fighting and trying to injure and kill each other. Why hadn't the yet discovered that you could achieve the same kind of dramatic entertainment value simply by simulating dramatic fighting without actually hurting anyone? Well, you might well ask the same question of today. I mean, because we look around, we have we, we certainly have. We have such dramatic fair is say professional wrestling, but then we also have we still have professional, boxing, and in mixed martial arts in which individuals are are still engaging in actual intentional violence against each other..
