We're ready to fall for the Fainting Goat

We've learned a lot about fainting goats -- also known as stiff-legged goats and nervous goats, goats whose propensity for falling down have earned them their own international society -- since we heard that an outfit called The Fainting Goat has applied for a liquor license at 846 Broadway, just down the street from the Westword office. That's the spot formerly occupied by Moon Time, and the Minturn before that, and Basil before that, and a long, long time before that, by the Parlor.

And now, if all goes according to plan and the deal comes through, it will be the Fainting Goat. Which sounds like an ideal Westword hang out since, as one fainting goat expert explains, the animals can get "excited over being fed."

See for yourself after the jump.
