    First line of this news story is probably the best opening line to a news story I've ever read.

    Was it not asked to queue orderly outside while posh sheep were served at lunchtime?

    Maybe it only happens in Morningside

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Even the farm animals over here favour violence and intimidation as a means of getting their own way.

    That's brilliant. I've not read any further than the first line.

    My imagination is running wild, in a good way.

    "Sorry mate, you're not getting in " ...

    "Right, that's it ..." 😂😂😂😂

    The last line is a belter too:

    The incident ended when a man, believed to be the goat's owner, arrived at the shop and dragged the goat off by the horns.

    Lots of good bits but that was my favourite line too. Still making me laugh now.

    Tbf in NI there was probably a pretty high chance that could happen.

    I'm reporting this thread to the SPCA.

    A blatant case of trolling.
