Yeah, but no gnats isn't necessarily good gnats, so I'm afraid your argument is invalid. Gnats all I can tell you.

Goats? The clue is misleading since one tends to think of rats or pigs as animals that eat almost anything. Goats don't even come close.

Pigs are actually kind of picky, and rats are just opportunistic, but even the most loved, pampered, and well cared-for domestic goat will eat a tin can dropped on the ground and relish it as if it was the damn chef's selection at Le Cirque.

We must have gourmet goats. Our Boers are very selective in what they eat. They won't even eat our garden trimmings but they love trees and bushes, which is why we bought them, to keep pasture edges and pond areas cleared. (We have one called Houdini because she is an escape artist, and she eats my flowers on her occasional trips over the fence. I'm threatening to change her name to Barbecued.)

I had a goat that ate a safety pin once. Fortunately the pin was closed, and the goat lived many more years after that without any ill effects that I could tell. I now have twin goats named Houdini and Alcatraz , so Houdini must be a universally good name for a goat. :)

Technically the largest primate isn't the gorilla. Going my maximum eight humans are the largest primate. The heaviest human weighed somewhere in the area of 1400 pounds while the heaviest gorilla came in just shy of 900 pounds. According to a quick google search anyway.
