I wouldn’t worry about these “vigilantes”. Sounds like they had a little too much to drink.

...with one suspect transforming himself into a goat as vigilantes cornered him.

This is one of those posts that warrants a picture or two. We were wondering what kind of goat -- a Boer, Alpine, Kiko, Myotonic, Nubian? It might be important evidence.

The old transform-yourself-into-a-goat trick. So simple, so predictable, yet it always seems to work, that’s the frustrating thing.

“Was it on the lamb?”


Only the suspect’s Nigerian goatmail account was.

The police got right on the case so it was quickly muttoned up, I herd. Besides, everyone knows that a real goat would have eaten the newspaper.

Of course, the suspect transformed back once his cellmate started singing Minnie Riperton...

The old transform-yourself-into-a-goat trick.

Wait a minute.

Suppose the thief is really a goat? What if a goat transformed himself into a human to commit the crime?

If I was cornered by a crowd of Nigerian vigilantes I’d think I’d pick something besides a goat.

Nigeria can’t lay claim to all the weirdness. I’ve heard tell of a Kenyan who thinks he’s qualified to be President of the United States.

Don't laugh -- demorats turn themselves into genuine jackasses the instant they get elected to office. Even before, actually.

I think the *real* perp probably hoofed it out of there.

The local authorities called in a foreign investigator, McGruff, but he turned out to be a distant relative of the suspect.
