…what about an ESCAPE goat?? Naturally, this would be a goat you keep within reach at all times, in case you should have the need for a hasty retreat.
Imagine you’ve just been caught in a lie, or there was an awkward pause in the conversation. You simply shout, “Come, Genevieve!” and your Escapegoat trots past. Jump on her back, and you’re immediately carried to social safety.
Also, Escapegoat can be used in lieu of Taxis, saving money AND the planet!
