No Kidding

This spring Google decided to take a low-carbon approach: Instead of using noisy mowers that run on gasoline and pollute the air, they have rented some goats from California Grazing to do the job.

The story generated a lot of coverage, especially from TechCrunch who covered the news. They announced the developing story and then contacted PETA to get their view and finally today MG Siegler visited the goats at Google’s campus in Mountain View.

What would have made the story even more hilarious is if they were Myotonic Goats as that would have been highly amusing. Myotonic Goats or Fainting Goats as they're widely known have muscles that freeze for roughly 10 seconds when the goat is startled. Though painless, this generally results in the animal collapsing on its side.
