Default Odd profits from goat video calls...

Dot McCarthy runs a farm in Lancashire, in the northwest part of England. She took the farm over from her Mom five years ago...

The farm supplemented its income by hosting weddings and educational visits.

But with Covid, that income all disappeared...

To help make ends meet on the farm, Dot started shoveling and selling manure...

Then she hit on a "wild" idea... The idea of renting out goats for video calls!

The idea is that one of their goats could join your video meeting - with a little help in the background from the farm staff. (The goat joins the meeting by video too, and doesn't have to leave the farm.)

You can choose which of their goats (all with names and personalities) you want to join your video call!

They charge 5 (just under $7 US dollars) for each goat appearance on a video call... Some people voluntarily donate more than that...

But it's no laughing matter - as it's added up to 50,000 in income (around $68,000 US dollars) since Covid started!

Dot also says, it's easier and more fun than hauling manure!

Default Probably the CIA.

I'm sure someone from the MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS program (Remote Viewing) are tuning in and maybe even attempting dastardly deeds on the poor things. Glad she was creative, just hope the goats are safe.

Gordon

PS. Picture either George Clooney or The Big Lebowski tuning in, YIKES!!

Ha!

By the way, I've known of Jon Ronson's stuff for a while (e.g. "The Men Who Stare at Goats") but still haven't read or watched any!

(Though I've been meaning too... weird stuff is up my alley... )

It was the ARMY who stared at goats or still do.

CIA stares at kangaroos. FBI at mirrors. NSA at satellites. MI5 at white cats.

Just want to get all the proper staring right.
