He took the little goat in his arms. Then he came running back and held out his hand to Paula, saying, "I thank you a thousand times! God reward you for it!"

As he climbed up the mountain he began to sing. His joyous notes rang out so clearly through the valley that every one in the hotel heard them, and many a sleeper turned on his pillow, saying, "Good! the goat boy has sunshine once more." The goats, too, seemed to fell that it was a day of gladness, and skipped and capered about as never before. The sun was so bright, and after the rains the grasses were so green and the flowers so gay that Moni thought he had never seen the world look so beautiful. He kept his little kid beside him all day, and plucked the best herbs for it, saying often, "Little Meggy, you are mine now, and will come up the mountain with me every day as long as you live."

Young Mr. Stillwater was exhausted. He had just climbed to the top of Ratzenhofer Mountain, carrying a goat, and only stopping once for an amorous bestial break. The goat, weary from Stillwater's ravaging, slept comfortably in his arms.

Mr. Stillwater came to seek the guidance of Ratzenhofer. The village below shunned Stillwater because of his fondness for goats, sheep, and an occasional flying squirrel.

But yet Ratzenhofer's behavior with the same animals was accepted -- Ratzenhofer was welcome into the village with open arms, even when he had goat-breath.

"Why?" thought Stillwater. "Why can he ravage the animals with impunity while I suffer great castigation? I must know."

He approached the hut of the wizened old capybara molester and prayed he would find the answers he so dearly needed.

It was a fine curry. Behind the spice, I couldn't tell who it belonged to.

You don't know where that goat has been, Cav! Well, now you do, and that makes things worse, I guess!

Anyway, I am enthralled. I didn't know that Mr. Stillwater lived near to Gus, but I guess that that would.. explain things.

Welcome to A2K Z-bus!!! We have a Gus, a truckload of cat-lovers and a feral South Australian bunny, just for starters!!! Surrender now, it saves us time......



Now, to the issue at hand. When anyone asks about the point where A2K 'jumped the shark', you can truthfully point to the moment when Gustav AND Stillwater accused each other of goat-fondling in the mountains... funny, I always thought it would be Slappy that managed to bring this place into disrepute....
