    My apologies, it would appear that the BBC's link is now broken. Try here.

    Re: Burning Goat

    Ahh, the yearly festivity of a straw goat being the subject of arson in a small village in sweden. Why it reminds me of.....

    Seriously though, I'm thinking of having a sweepstakes on how long it'll last!

    Re: Burning Goat

    Apparently some UK bookies will take bets on the goat's survival

    Re: Burning Goat

    Did it survive last year? I remember them saying they were going to use a special coating that shoudl stop arson but heard no more after.

    Re: Burning Goat

    could the lights be setting it on fire? and people were just imagining arsonists?

    Re: Burning Goat

    from their history page:

    In 2006 the goat survived a pyromaniac attack on December 15th. It was minor burned on its right leg. After that the goat survived in one piece.

    Re: Burning Goat

    Interesting choice of wording:

    In 1967 the goat was left unmolested.

    In 1968 the goat was again left unmolested.

    In 1969 the goat was burned on New Year's Eve.

    I thought that. It just sounds wrong. Very wrong.
