Goat Mania !!!!!
You think that the cover is the very pinnacle of delight and then you turn to page 11 to read the article entitled 'Goat Mania'.
" Goat mania is something that grows on you unawares, but once you have it, it never leaves you..."
This is followed by an article entitled 'A Sure Sign of Insanity':
" The first clue to your impending imbalance is to THINK you might like to keep a goat... it will butt you, stand on you, just for the fun it'll kick you, belch in your face... only a female could cause so much trouble and still be loved, cherished and pampered. Well I'll be getting my own back, she's soon to go to the Billy!!"
The publication is basically a series of exhortations for people to NOT own goats which is unusually frank for an enthusiasts' journal.
One edition has a description of goat birth which is not for the faint-hearted nor for those attempting to have their afternoon tea break...
