Dear Quavers,

I saw a baby goat on the internet playing and dancing on a bucket and a stump. Imagine the cutest thing you have ever seen. Got it? Well, this is way cuter! Are you wondering why I am writing to tell you about this? Well, it’s because the goat’s name is Quaver! They named the goat after your crisps. If you don’t believe me you can do a search for “Quaver the Pygmy goat kid playing” on youtube and you should be able to find it (if you can’t find the video get an intern to help you).

I’m not sure I get naming a baby goat after a tasty snack, that seems a bit wrong to me, but people do all kinds of weird things. For example: my friend Anthony Imperioli plays with puppets on the internet and he’s supposed to be a grown man!

In my country we call crisps “potato chips,” but I bet you already knew that, what with being in the snack food business and all. We also call chips “fries” and footballers “soccer players.” “Cookies” are cookies here, but you guys call them biscuits (which sounds dumb!). Sorry, I shouldn’t be giving you an English lesson, you guys invented the language!

Anyway, I thought you’d want to know about the goat!


Sincerely,


Christopher L. Jorgensen

Commentary:

This was such an easy letter to respond to. All she needed was one line that said, “We looked at the goat and she’s adorable!”

Without further commentary I give you a baby goat playing and dancing:
