Goats in the Army
Contest Directions: Apparently the British have goats in the army with pretty high titles. [ A disgraced British army goat has been reinstated to his rank of lance-corporal after shining on parade. Billy Windsor, mascot of the 1st Battalion The Royal Welsh, was demoted to fusilier - equivalent of private - after ruining a parade for the Queen's birthday at a military base in Cyprus, when he ran amok. The goat dodged his handler and darted from side to side, throwing soldiers off their stride.' In his first public appearance since his demotion, Billy, seven, reportedly performed exceptionally well and was reinstated by his commanding officer, reports the Scotsman. ] I've heard of animals in the army, but this is the first time I hear of goats with decent army ranks serving Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth by ruining her birthday and butting fellow soldiers. When asked whether he regretted the incident, Billy the goat responded: "Na-a-a-a-a-a-a." You know, there's lots of unfairness here. I love to butt people, but I get my face punched every time I do it. Goats do it and they get away with it, because they are goats. It's almost as unfair as being punched in the face for humping girl's legs, when every dog can do it and get away with it. The good news is that I'm growing a goatee and turning into an old goat, then moving to Britain, where I intend to join the army, butting everyone. That way if someone asks me why I'm butting them I can always say: "Whadddaaya wa-a-a-a-nt? I'm a goat-damn goa-a-a-a-t."
In this contest you are asked to photoshop goats in the army.
P.S. On a second thought, there's lots of old goats in the U.S. Army too, so I might as well stay.

This contest is fueled by the following news: When all was said and done, perhaps no one was happier when a recent parade went off without incident that one Billy Windsor. What is interesting to note is that Billy Windsor is a goat. He made it through the parade without incident which meant that he was restored to the rank of lance-corporal. Up until 2006, Billy had been a lance-corporal in the First Battalion of The Royal Welsh regiment. However, he was demoted in 2005 to the rank of fusilier, which is the equivalent of being a private. Billy Windsor, the goat, was demoted when a he ruined a private parade celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's birthday. The parade was held in Cyprus. Billy decided to run amok during the parade. He dodged his handler and ran about, ending up throwing the soldiers off of their stride. He did better this year at the Alma Day parade, an annual event marking the fighting group's victory in the Crimean War way back in 1854. The Alma Day parade marked Billy Windsor's first public appearance since the ill fated celebration of the Queen's birthday last year. With his reinstatement, Billy (the goat) can now eat in the Corporals Mess and ordinary soldiers actually have to stand at attention in his presence. A goat has been part of the First Battalion of The Royal Welsh since 1746. Billy is a descendent of the first goat in the battalion.
