March to a different goat (March 2021 nominations)
narfcake thought this was worth mentioning said5
It’s that time again, when we
blame unblame @brainmist for the month of goatdom, but now that the month is coming to a close – and hopefully the weather will return back to “normal” – it’s time to for another mehmber to take over the role of the goat.
So nominate away!

I’ll go @Felton10. According to their profile they’ve never been a goat and I think we’ve all been talking about the bubble wrap theory enough to warrant a vote
I 2nd the vote for @Felton10! I’m not one for going big on expectations BUT… I sure as heck think THIS is going to be VERY interesting! Bring on the madness, after all it IS March!!
@DoctorOW I knew my “bubble wrap theory” would bear fruit and garner supporter if I talked about it enough. Either that or the men in the white coats would come to take me away.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 They’d be men in BUBBLE WRAP coats coming to take you away haha they’re coming to take you away ho ho he he ha ha
(unfortunately I can’t find a version that both the right way and has the flip side where they play it backwards).
Here is, separately, the backwards side
@DoctorOW @Kidsandliz In support of my nomination for March Goat, I offer my treatment of Walter-our 25 year old African Grey parrot who we got when he was 10 weeks old. Those of you who have followed his exploits already know we do not treat him like a bird. We do not keep him in a cage during the day-he is free to roam around the house which he does frequently looking for us when we are not in the same room as him.
He is more dog than bird starting to bark like a dog (which he probably picked up at the pet motel to which we take him) and his diet is definitely non bird like with chicken, lamp chops and such.
I think the above is certainly worth some votes for March Goat.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kidsandliz Does Walter like bubble wrap?
@DoctorOW @Kidsandliz @Kyeh Not sure he has ever had any to play with-might be toxic if he ate some so I wouldn’t want to take the chance.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kidsandliz Oh, true, he likes to chew stuff up, doesn’t he.
@DoctorOW @Kidsandliz @Kyeh @tinamarie1974 Got one vote anyway
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kidsandliz @Kyeh aawwww
@DoctorOW @Kidsandliz @Kyeh @tinamarie1974 who knew he could use a sharpee, I’ve only seen him at the computer.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 NO NO NO NO NO you are not supposed to canvas for yourself with this goat thing. Several others have tried this and been denied. Of course more than several others tried to run away from being goat and were eventually frog marched into it.
@DoctorOW @Kidsandliz Sorry-I didn’t know this is my first involvement in this activity. I will tell Walter to tear up his mail in ballot. I will let my accomplishments speak for themselves.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kidsandliz I don’t think there are any hard an fast rules regarding tantrums or self promotion. @narfcake please advise
@DoctorOW @Kidsandliz @narfcake @tinamarie1974 I am sure no one has ever had a bird as their campaign manager. We are probably in uncharted territory here.
@Kyeh you can see the beak marks at the top of the sign.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kidsandliz @narfcake @tinamarie1974
Do you have a campaign song yet?
/youtube Childish Gambino Redbone
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kyeh @tinamarie1974 Be careful. Walter might deny you the win and be goat himself.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kyeh @tinamarie1974 OMG that image, for a change, is perfect!
@DoctorOW @Kidsandliz @mike808 @narfcake @tinamarie1974 On the advice of my campaign manager, I was considering Chuck Berry’s only # 1 billboard single-My Ding-a-Ling.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kidsandliz @tinamarie1974 “Goat or bird?” Yes, that IS perfect! 🦜
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kidsandliz @narfcake @tinamarie1974
Self-promotion got @Weboh goated, and a fine goat he was, too.
I nominate @Lynnerizer
I nominate @DoctorOW
I was going to say - clever of @DoctorOW to try to head off being nominated for this month… I do think @Felton10 is a highly qualified candidate, but DoctorOW is just postponing the inevitable.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kyeh @RiotDemon If he loses this time (and it looks like the vote is headed that way) we need to goat him next time. Actually we need to go back to older nomination threads so see who else is running under the radar.
@DoctorOW @Felton10 @Kidsandliz @RiotDemon Well, njfan hasn’t been a goat…
@DoctorOW you are doomed for a future month for what you did here
@Kidsandliz You’ll never catch me!
I nominate @sammydog01
@njfan already a goat
I nominate @tinamarie1974
Also a goat emeritus.
@njfan For future reference, here’s the calendar of the scapegoat, which I’ll be updating for the latest entries sometime this weekend.
I nominate @narfcake
I nominate @Kyeh
better orworse, I’ve been the scapeshirtgoat already.
/giphy shirt goat
@narfcake @njfan I nominate njfan.
@Kyeh @narfcake @njfan Note to self: next month.
@Kyeh @narfcake @njfan What you don’t know is that there is a trap on the other side of that hedge… (grin)
How about Walter-why does the goat have to be a person. I’m am sure he would be fine representative for Meh. I would gladly withdraw from the race as long as the title is in the family.
@Felton10 The goat doesn’t have to be a person, but they do need an account/username to hide behind.
@narfcake Since you already know his real name and what he looks like, he wants to know if that is really necessary. He doesn’t really do social media.
/8ball Is the meh forum considered social media?
My sources say no
/8ball Is the meh forum considered anti-social media?
Reply hazy try again
@narfcake I asked Walter and he said to a bird it is.
/8ball Is the bird the word?
Ask again later
@narfcake Walter asked me this morning how the vote was coming. He thinks he is being treated unfairly because he is a bird and thinks new rules are being made up to limit his chance of winning. I didn’t know what to say to him.
He asked me if I could cut him another piece of cardboard so he could picket Meh-said he was going to write on it “Meh unfair to birds”.
@Felton10 @narfcake how about Walter serve as your vice Goat??
@narfcake @tinamarie1974 If the powers-that-be exclude his species from consideration as GOAT, I assume that would preclude me naming him as vice goat.
Certainly he has a wing up on other notables in the vice category ie Mike Pence and the long forgotten Dan Quayle.
@Felton10 @narfcake @tinamarie1974
I think we should let Walter type for himself. How do we know @Felton10 isn’t coercing him to say those things about wanting to be goat?
Now if @WalterTheParrotWhoIsNotFelton10 were to protest his nomination, I’d vote for him.
@Felton10 @narfcake i feel like lile once you are goat it is within your powers to decide of he is vice goat or not.

@Felton10 @narfcake Walter already has the goat/bird photo to help him pass as a goat… Remind him of that.
@mike808 @narfcake @tinamarie1974 I should have never posted the picture of Walter at the computer-now you know he has the ability to communicated via the written word unlike other birds. Walter is not as smart as this though.
Yes, you will be needing a new goat. Bwahahaha
