Also, goats can’t read. They do, however, have a rich mythological history dating back to Norse mythology, where they were responsible for pulling Thor’s chariot. Thor’s goats have a special talent – he eats their flesh, then wraps their bones up, then in the morning they’re revived and ready to start all over again. In the Chinese Zodiac, being born in the year of the goat makes one shy, creative, and attentive. The goat is also the animal for the Zodiac sign of Capricorn. People from the Middle Ages thought that goats whispered profanities and dirty things to saints. Obviously, goats are too busy to learn to read.
