If I were a goat

[Found in here.]

“We need a statue…”

“…so I’m commissioning you to create a lasting statue, one that represents our country’s honor, bravery and courage in the face of adversity.”
“How about a ferocious lion, fighting its way to freedom?”
“No. I want a goat.”
“A goat, sir?”
“Yes. A goat with a pike.”
“A goat holding a fish, sir?”
“No. A goat holding a pike, a lance.”
“A jousting goat, sir?”
“No. A goat just holding a lance, to show that we are peaceful at heart, yet are capable of defending ourselves should we need to.  And it’s got to be a Christian goat.”
“But sir, not all of our countrymen are Christians.”
“So include our flag, to unite us, and to recognize the Christians as well.”
“You got it.”
