Malicious Scapegoating Alert 

This really gets my goat...

There is something demeaning about talking about the goat as a pet instead of as a mascot.

My favorite goat anecdote concerns the time my husband, roaming the halls of the Pentagon, ran into a young man he'd served with years ago.

The officer recognized my husband immediately. "I know you!", he said.

My husband shot back, "I know you too... you used to be The Goat".

The young officer used to be "Bill The Goat", the Naval Academy mascot, so this exchange made sense viewed in that context. But somehow, to this day I can't think of the story without laughing.
