All Hail the Funicular Goat!
Thank you all for the entries to win a Swift Windsteed! I really enjoyed reading them.
One in particular caught my attention though. Elfindale‘s post! I, too, love Dr. Seuss and loved the idea of calling the Windsteed a “Funicular Goat”.
I am a huge Dr. Seuss fan, so as soon as I see this new flying goat mount my mind immediately named it The Flying Funicular.
Funicular goats were featured in “Happy Birthday To You” written by Dr. Seuss in 1959. The passage mentioning the goats is:
And now, on this Day of all Days in Katroo,
The Asso-see-eye-ation has built just for you
A railway with very particular boats
That are pulled through the air by Funicular Goats.
These goats never slip, never trip, never bungle.
They’ll take us down fast to the Birthday Flower Jungle.
Plus, they look FUN so calling them Funicular’s fits very well.
Congratulations Elfindale! You will be getting an email shortly with the code for your very own Funicular Goat!
