That really gets my goat

The New York Times is telling us that goat is the new lamb. 
Been there, done that, bought the shirt, next!
But seriously Times, it's a bit insulting to come up with this far-out idea of eating an animal that has sustained cultures in countries the world over for centuries -- even on the mean streets of Toronto, Albert's Real Jamaican has been deliciously dishing it up for decades. 
But I guess now that the Manhattan yuppies have "discovered" it, goat is officially the new (but oddly, hard to find for writer Henry Alford) "it" meat. 
Ha, look at me running off at the mouth. For was it not I, who just last week proclaimed horse to be the new beef?
Pot, meet kettle. Kettle, meet black.
