I’ve heard some great stories about people going to great lengths to escape the authorities. Heck, I’ve even seen some of them in person. But transforming into a goat to evade capture is probably the best. In fact, it may be the most awesome thing that’s ever happened in the history of the universe.
The Vanguard newspaper in Lagos, Nigeria, reported on Friday that two men tried stealing a car a couple days earlier. When vigilantes cornered the men, one of them turned himself into a goat.
Then he got caught. Which makes me wonder why he turn himself into either something that could fly away, or at least something more menacing than a goat. Like a cow.
But what’s even better was that the police arrested the goat (no word on handcuffs), then paraded the goat out to the press to show off their suspect.
But wait – THERE’S MORE! You know what’s even better? Is that one of Nigeria’s biggest daily newspapers reported what sounds like a real story about the suspect turning into a goat, complete with a picture.
You may not believe this, but belief in black magic is fairly common in some areas of Nigeria.
(Sorry – this was the best Goatboy clip I could find that had more than 30 seconds of Goatboy).
