Have Goat, Will Travel.

"The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights," said K.C. Raju a senior airline official, without explaining what the problem had been. Well, it must've been a problem with overly anxious quadripeds eating the lower landing gear.. say... at a goats height?

It is a normal practice in Nepal to sacrifice animals to appease different Hindu deities, but come on! A better reason to off some goats that were on the run way could've been come up with.

It is always interesting to see old world practices and new world procedures be intertwined in a society such as this. Grandma says, "Kill a goat, it'll get better." Your mechanic says, "Looks like we blew a fuse when someone put a goat in the toilet." Im sure someone has a good enough reason to come up with a reasonable explantion, but being a goat in Nepal just got a little more dramatic.
