Such Hoofwork: Goat Climbs Down A Palm Tree

February 22, 2019

This is a video of a goat climbing down a very steep palm tree. Admittedly, that is some solid hoofwork. If I had been that goat there's no question I would fallen from the very top of the tree, then when I finally raised my head I would have gotten conked by a bunch of falling coconuts, just like you'd expect to see in a cartoon. "That's not a coconut tree." I'm also not a goat, this is all just hypercritical. "You mean hypothetical?" You know what? *slams laptop, flushes, stands and pulls pants up* I think I'm done here. "You forgot to wipe." MY UNDERWEAR WILL TAKE CARE OF IT.

Keep going for the video, as well as another from a couple years ago of a goat chilling waaaay up in a palm.

Thanks to Luc, who agrees there's a reason goats are the greatest of all time.

    Check out the goat at the end at a 90 degree angle from the other goats. Whatever is happen is still amazing.

    i wanted a video of the goat going up to go with the one going down. also a third one to see what the goat went up there for, maybe eating some kind of palmtree fruits or nuts or whatever

    Man, really wanted to link to a video of that flying circus sketch, but they're all DMCA'd. I thought that Monty guy was cool, ya'know.

    Here, you can just read it like a poor person:

    (A tourist approaches a shepherd. The sounds of sheep and the outdoors are heard.)

    Tourist (Terry Jones: Good afternoon.

    Shepherd (Graham Chapman): Afternoon

    Tourist: Ah, lovely day isn't it?

    Shepherd: Ar, 'tis that.

    Tourist: Are you here on holiday or...?

    Shepherd: No, no, I live 'ere.

    Tourist: Oh, jolly good. I say, those ARE sheep aren't they?

    Shepherd: Yeh.

    Tourist: Yes yes, I though so. Only, why are they up in the trees?

    Shepherd: A fair question and one that in recent weeks 'as been much on my mind. It's my considered opinion that they're nestin'.

    Tourist: Nesting?

    Shepherd: Aye.

    Tourist: Like birds?

    Shepherd: Exactly. Birds is the key to the whole problem. It's my belief that these sheep are laborin' under the misapprehension that they're birds. Observe their behavior. Take for a start the sheeps' tendency to 'op about the field on their back legs. Now witness their attmpts to fly from tree to tree. Notice that they do not so much fly as... plummet. (Baaa baaa... flap flap... thud.) Observe for example that ewe in that oak tree. She is clearly trying to teach her lamb to fly. (baaaaa... thud) Talk about the blind leading the blind.

    Tourist: Yes, but why do they think they're birds?

    Shepherd: Another fair question. One thing is for sure, the sheep is not a creature of the air. They have enormous difficulty in the comparatively simple act of perchin'. (Baaa baaa... flap flap... thud.) As you see. As for flight its body is totally unadapted to the problems of aviation. Trouble is, sheep are very dim. Once they get an idea in their 'eads, there's no shiftin' it.

    Tourist: But where did they get the idea from?

    Shepherd: From Harold. He's that sheep over there under the elm. He's that most dangerous of animals, a clever sheep. He's the ring leader. He has realized that a sheep's life consists of standin' around for a few months and then bein' eaten. And that's a depressing prospect for an ambitious sheep. He's patently hit on the idea of escape.

    Tourist: Well why don't you just get rid of Harold?

    Shepherd: Because of the enormous commercial possibilities should he succeed.

    Voice Over (Eric Idle): And what exactly are the commercial possibilities of ovine aviation?

    the one thing bing is better for, google has too much of a youtube bias since they own it

  • Bling Nye

    Hey, look up in that tree at those coconuts goat nuts.

  • Douchy McDouche

    You can't fool me! I've seen enough Batman episodes to know how that vertical climbing is really filmed!

  • lushkneebumbuild

    they tilted it a little, but the thumbnail for the first video looks about right for what i've seen goats do in the past

  • Oh yeah, just wait 'til you hear about the Goat Initiative's involvement in faking the Moon Landing.
    Shocking! ;-)
