Jaevle Gävle Goat 2012 Is Burning

The drunks in Gävle, Sweden, beat the security again this year. Most years they do, but not always. Every year around this time, we at Bazillion Points HQ fire up the Gävlebocken webcam and watch the traffic pass the snowy streets surrounding an immense 30-foot wooden Yule goat. Since more than 50% of the time, the goat is torched by arsonists, he is closely watched; but hey, it’s cold out there and the cops need meatballs after midnight just like everybody else. Yesterday, just as we were closing up shop for the night, the flames rose to an inferno! Everything was over so quickly. Now even the goat’s Twitter feed is dead. See you next year, Gävle goat…
