Kids Hate Me . . . Don't Want BBQ Goat for Thanksgiving!

Okay, okay, I don't want to BBQ a goat for Thanksgiving but my kids think it's going to happen.

World Vision, a national organization that helps undernourished children around the world, has a program where you can purchase a live goat with a $75.00 contribution and the goat will go to a needy family in a third world country. I purchased a goat for this program earlier this week and told my kids who are grown and living on their own that I bought a live goat, but I didn't tell them why.

Well, they know how I'm into BBQ and on this blog a lot and they are all freaking out now. I guess the news has hit all their facebook pages and I'm getting all these pro-goat e-mails with pleas not to BBQ it.

I have to admit that I intentionally lead them astray with this in the beginning by mentioning the goat purchase and then following it up with how much I was looking forward to this Thanksgiving dinner. I think the whole thing is funny but maybe I'm causing some angst that I shouldn't. I've found a cool link on the subject of BBQ goat and forwarded it to them and that didn't seem to help much.

Anyway, I've included a few of the links that are going back and forth. The most recent link sent to me this morning has a pretty incredible video of a goat walking a tight rope with a monkey on its back dong a hand stand. Does anybody have a link on how to BBQ a monkey?

Here's the link to the video. I don't know how you could eat a goat that can do this, but the monkey. . . well that's a different matter.

This is a pretty funny commentary that was sent to me from a goat.

This is the goat recipe I sent them a couple of days ago. Yum, yum.

Well I would not want to be responsible for the demise of a cute innocent little goat. Is is too late to get a refund? Or maybe call em up and demand they change the order to Spam and Twinkies or something like that.

No need for worry bigwheel. The goat is on its way to some third world country where it will be a loving member of their household. I guess I should have provided the link to the program so you could see actually what this is all about. I just neglected to tell my kids. They assumed that I was going to actually have the goat as the main course for Thanksgiving dinner.

Here's the link for the goat program.
