Seriously. Okay, well, I can’t confirm this is the company he used, but I hear that Goats-R-Us is the biggest goat rental company in California. I feel like I’m writing some spoof right now, this is nuts. Nuts, and well, maybe a great idea?
I apparently need to read my Grist more thoroughly, because I missed the bit in their EMA coverage where they talked with Lance Bass and Reichen Lehmkuhl. “Instead of having the brush cleared away at our house with lawnmowers,” said Reichen, “there’s rental goats. They tie them in your yard and they eat all the brush on the hill to stop the forest fires. When the goats are full and the brush is gone, the goats are taken away.” Curious about how much something like that would run you? Goats-R-Us recommends estimating about $700/acre.
Wait, there’s more. Lance apparently posted something about the wonders of goats on his MySpace, which I can’t see right now because I’m not his friend, can’t remember my password to ask to be his friend, and otherwise am feeling a little lazy at the moment. TMZ then picked it up and now it’s international gossip.
There you have it, folks. That is the complete story (so far) of Lance Bass & his goats.
