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.”


And it struck fear in the hearts of no one…
