Goats have certainly risen in popularity over the past couple years — especially when it comes to using them as a green (and cheaper) alternative to traditional landscaping services. Google rents them to clear fields at its Mountainview campus (and reduce fire threats), and even Yahoo! hires a herd of over 200 to wipe out invasive weeds. Goat rental companies are popping up everywhere from San Francisco to Seattle — and that’s got Stephen Colbert upset.
In his new feature called “People Destroying America”, Colbert targets landscape goat herders and accuses them of stealing American jobs and giving them to four-legged animals. “Goats, if you’re going to steal our landscaping jobs,” quips Colbert, “humans are going to start producing feta cheese.”
