LAGOS, Nigeria – One of Nigeria's biggest daily newspapers reported that police implicated a goat in an attempted automobile theft. In a front-page article on Friday, the Vanguard newspaper said that two men tried to steal a Mazda car two days earlier in Kwara State, with one suspect transforming himself into a goat as vigilantes cornered him.

The paper quoted police spokesman Tunde Mohammed as saying that while one suspect escaped, the other transformed into a goat as he was about to be apprehended.

Let's see; Hamas is preparing to attack Israel again (aka cease-fire), The POTUS is a socialist, most of his nominees are crooks, Republicans are refusing to even function as an opposing party, the Barny Frank Depression is beginning, Obama's New Deal II is making it worse, our tax money is going to abortions across the world, terrorist are going to be released, illegals may get amnesty, and what does yahoo news have report about?

Funny story, but unless Goat-Man is working with Al Queda, he's not really high on my priority list. This really shows how pitiful the leftist media has become.

If you get an email from a Nigerian goat claiming to have a million dollars he wants transferred to an American bank, don’t fall for it. That goat is a scam artist.

Obviously that car thief should have picked a better animagus than a goat (who does he think he is Aberforth Dumbledore, for goodness sake)? Maybe a phoenix or other flying creature would be more useful, or a rodent like Wormtail?
I feel sorry for the goat and its owner, which will probably be slaughtered while the second car thief laughs all the way to the bank.

Nigeria uh? All I can say is that I’m thankful our President is from Kenya —I understand they are a much more advanced tribe.
