Goat Steak


OMG Norway! It's tradition!

Every year a giant straw goat is build in Sweden and most years it meets a violent end. Usually by fire, but it has also been hit by cars and kicked apart.

People don't hate it. It has just become part of the tradition to try and destroy it.

I totally diagnosed Sweden now. He has suppressed his ancient sexual desires for horses and goats and other animals with hooves. And when he builds the giant goat and looks at it, he is overwhelmed by sexual desires, and tries extremely hard to deny and suppress those feelings, so hard that his personality splits in a storm of dissociation and he becomes arsonist and burns the goat so that the tormenting sexual desires goes away. And seeing the goat burn snaps him out from this psychotic episode and he doesn't remember burning it down himself.

Norway's suggestion for Sweden to burn the goat down himself every year possibly raised the suppressed emotional memories (without episodic memory) of having sex with goats and burning them down. And feelings of guilt and shame fired up Sweden's psychological defenses. As the most common cover-up for secret feelings of guilt and shame is denial and aggression.

A big Finnish textile manufacturer, Finlayson, has announced a design project called "100 leijonaa", 100 lions. They are asking people to design their own ideas of the Finnish Lion, our coat of arms animal, to celebrate both Finland's 100 years of independence next year and the multicultural society Finland is today ("we have room for more than just one kind of lion"). Now we are wondering in a geek women's group how we could persuade Humon to take part in this, because the "Special Lion" drawn by her was the first thing we all thought about when we saw the announcement.

China: Do you have any advice for my new goat I'm going to make and burn?
Sweden: I would recommend magnesium. You have a lot of it, and it is flammable, but in large pieces, it is unlikely to completely destroy anything. So, as long as you don't have any small pieces involved, that's what I think you should do.
China: Okay, thanks for the advice Sweden.
America: Your goat has been burning for a while. Don't you think it's time to put it out?
China: Yes, that would be a good idea.
America: Okay, I have a bucket of water-
China: America, no- Oh dear god, YOU FUELED THE FIRE!!!
America: I'm sorry, I didn't know!
Finland: Perkele...

I actually think we'd be sadder if it didn't burn down, it's good to have traditions that involve fire imo

Off-screen, Finland looks at the psychotic Sweden, smiling proudly.

Finland: (holds up a sign saying "Not so different after all, huh?"
Sweden: FUCK OFF! OR I'LL KILL YOU WITH A STRAW!

The goat survived in 2017! They needed big fences around it and 24/7 surveillance by a professional security company, but hey...
