Enter the current challenge for a chance to win a custom critter illustration, limited edition print -AND- permanent residency in the NERD HERD Hall of Fame!
I’m hosting my Open Studio tour at the Mountain Flower Goat Dairy in Boulder next month and I’m so pumped to be sharing art space with a herd of sassy lactating ruminants that I thought it only prudent to propagate my enthusiasm by way of this month’s NERD ALERT Challenge.

Otherwise, read on for the details of this month’s challenge: I"ve GOAT a Fever, and the only cure is more Caprinae.
For those of you unfamiliar with the term Caprinae, all you really need to know is that it’s a subfamily of the even-toed hoofed animals that are commonly referred to as the caprids. This includes both the domestic sheep and the domestic goat, but for the purpose of this challenge, we only care about one thing...GOATS.
In a nutshell, I want you to submit your best cultural references to goats in the form of puns, idiomatic expressions, limericks, and other humorous arrangements of word play. So dust off the old Merriam-Webster and brush up on those literary devices we were somehow expected to commit to memory in high school because I am tasking you with an exercise in creative writing that WILL NOT CHUPACABRA (Suck Goat en español mis amigos).
