Burning News: Gavle Goat

USA Today informs us that:

Despite surveillance cameras and heavy security, vandals in a small Swedish town have burned down a giant Yuletide straw goat for the 24th time since 1966, the Associated Press reports.

Here at Emergent Chaos, we’re deeply concerned that the goat ended up with neither privacy nor even temporary safety.

  1. Obviously burning down the goat is now a local tradition. And a very tempting target for the vandals to test themselves in evading security. One must wonder what kind of security fails 24 times. Probably a type that doesn’t deserve the word “security.”
