Ok, so the leader of the US may be an ass, but last week the King of Ireland was a goat.
[quote]DUBLIN, Ireland (Reuters) – A goat named Louis was crowned King of Ireland on Thursday in one of the country’s oldest festivals.
Each year a wild male mountain goat is caught in the foothills of Carrauntoohill, Ireland’s highest mountain, and paraded through the country town of Killorglin as part of the Puck Fair – an annual festival of music, drinking and dancing.
The goat then reigns for three days from a platform 15 meters (50 ft) above the town’s streets. . .
This year’s King Puck is named Louis after the French Sun King and has an almost 70-cm (27-inch) horn span. He is kept in a special pen during his reign and fed a regular mountain diet of nuts, wild herbs, holly leaves, saplings and tender grasses.
Louis will be dethroned and returned to the wild on Saturday.[/quote]
