[[update]]
ok — i’m making this a competition, with a one-judge panel (me). prize: some ys book of your choosing. here are the suggestions that provoked an audible chuckle of some sort from me, so far:

    how come we got left behind? (sivin)

    “And for my second wish I want to play hopscotch with a panda.” (brian edwards)

    “Billy’s joy was fleeting as he realized that he would never get his pet llama to do this.” (chad f)

    Lighthouse Trails Research Update: This just in, YS President Mark Oestricher promotes goat jumping…details to follow. (sean)

    “What are we going to do today goat?” “The same thing we do everyday kid…try to take over the world!” (deanna)

    After Lassie’s death Timmy had to find the next best thing. (kevin franske)

[[new update]]
time to announce a winner! i just pulled my wife over to the computer (i’m at home, haven’t gone into work yet), and read the five finalists to her. she laughed out loud at the first two. and i have chosen — drum roll, please — “And for my second wish I want to play hopscotch with a panda.” (submitted by brian edwards).

thanks all for the great laughs!

brian — shoot me an email.

  1. The Billy Goat’ll make you: JUMP! JUMP!

    Cause he’s the miggata-miggata miggata-miggata ma-a-a-a-ack daddy!

    Oh my gosh…at least I cracked myself up :)

  2. looked like a cow to me…guess a cow wouldn’t fit on a trampoline.

    How about “young kung-foo prodigy squares off against Master Miyagi demonstrating the ‘Goat Stance'”

  3. “Watch my poop bounce on the trampline! Bounce poopies, Bounce! Hey kid, you want to try to make your poop bounce too?”

  4. It can’t be that great, the kid is going to jump and land in goat terds that are already on the trampline. Unless someone threw a bunch of blue berries on to the trampoline, I’m thinking “abandon ship!”

  6. or if you want to spell correctly, it could read:

    Lighthouse Trails Research… not sure what researce is exactly, but that’s what I get for attempting humor!

  7. so the coach peterson says we don’t have what it takes… we’ll show them, won’t we Ray? *cue goat and boy on trampoline montage*

  8. After the sounding of the bell for Round 1, Billy’s self-confidence began to falter. Could he follow in his dad’s footsteps and become the world champion trampoline goat wrestler (featherweight class)?

    Come on Billy! You can do it!

  9. “Holy Crap…that’s a goat jumping on a trampoline!”

    or

    “And you said you didn’t believe in evolution”

    and finally (Pinky and the Brain voices here)

    “What are we going to do today goat?” “The same thing we do everyday kid…try to take over the world!”

  10. Yet another dream fulfilled by the Make A Wish Foundation.

    OR

    This diagram found beside an entry in one of the Ideas Library books.

  11. Two universal truths of “you are what you eat” and “goats will eat anything” collide when this goat eats his 7-year-old, trampoline-bouncing owner.
