A silly goat

I’m sure you have all seen those people dressed up as statues in front of tourist sites. They stand still on a box pretending to be a gladiator or Dante or another figure from history.

They stand there and you put money in a box. Some are better than others. I came across one in Barcelona on the way to Park Guell that made me giggle. He/she was covered in a bed sheet and had a goat’s head sticking out in front.

When you put money in the box, the goat reached forward and gave a little bleat.

…maybe you needed to be there, but I was highly amused.

    • I think it is quite inventive. Given that Spain has huge youth unemployment, this is better than sitting at home doing nothing.
