My Disappointment

Internet, you are one mad roller coaster ride. You give me presents like MRI's of Corn and Animals being Friends, but now you disappointment me with this blatant false advertising.

It started off innocently enough: I saw an ad for goats for sale. It's a dream of mine to one day have a goat and pony and they'll be best friends together! So I just wanted to see how much a goat was going for these days.

So I clicked it, this ad titled "Goats for Sale".Only to be directed to this:


Not a goat on the page! Can you believe it? FOR SHAME, INTERNET. For shame. Although I did find something called Super Horny Goat Weed, designed to increase power and performance and support normal sexual functioning

Here I thought it was for some horny goats that just want to mellow out, man. It's a good thing I don't know a goat, or I would have bought him some as a surprise! I wouldn't want to see that (but I bet it's on the internet somewhere... you're so gross, internet) 

(I wouldn't actually buy a goat online. I was just curious in regards to goat pricing. I'm very interested in goat economics. I would definitely rescue my goat from goat bandits or something if I ever get my own goat. He will be RESCUED by me, and I'll be his hero)

  1. LOL, that's too funny!
    I am taking a crash course on website building (for myself), and one of the things they were pointing out was how many sites there are with sham ads aimed to drag you in for a quick profit. The idea is that they, ultimately, won't last- b/c they don't deliver what they promise, and are not real competitors.

  2. Tee hee, you're amusing. The pre-school I attended as a wee one had a pet goat. *nostalgic sigh*

  4. DH and I saw Super Horny Goat Weed in CVS Pharmacy a few months ago and we got the giggles so bad we thought security was going to throw us out.

  6. I too have dreamed about owning goats one day. I picture my husband and I living on a goat farm where we make the best goat cheese and goat milk soap in the land. Plus, they're so CUTE! Sometimes they remind me of dogs with their floppy ears. I also happen to know exactly where to buy a goat AND how much you can expect to pay. Craigslist, my friend, and about $50 will get you there.

  7. I want my own goats too and chickens and a cow. I grew up on a farm and I am used fresh eggs and milk, so I still am not a huge fan of store bought ones. This is sad though that most things on internet seem to be sex related. I guess its the easiest way to make money...

  9. That really is a let down. I mean, horny goat weed's interesting and all... but it's not as cute as a REAL goat ;)
