Meet Nanny Goats in Panties

Each week, I'll be taking some time to introduce you to a blog I find interesting, funny or absurd. Although the content you will be exposed to won't be coming directly from my mind, it will definitely be something my mind loves. So, if you enjoy my'll enjoy these friends.

I recently hooked up with a little site called, NetworkedBlogs.

Now, I realize the term "hooking up" has come to imply things that I am no way suggesting – nor would even be possible with a blog – but I am from a different generation and am using the term in the most innocent light.

As part of my continual quest to discover people who make me laugh (or at least smirk), I decided to peruse the “Topics” at NetworkedBlogs in hopes that it would lead me to that end.

Scrolling down, I came across two words: “Humor” and “Humour”.

I chose the latter. After all, if they can’t spell humour properly (read “Canadian”), then how funny can they be?

I would have started at the first one, but I don’t read Greek very well. So, I moved down to number two.

I immediately noticed that this particular blog was tagged with the words, "humour"…AND "humor". Hmmm. Is the author confused (“U” or not “U”, that is the question) or cowardly (just take a stand, would you)?

Both were obvious reasons to move on, but I couldn’t. I was paralyzed. I said, in my Captain Kirk voice, to no one in particular, “I…must…read…this…blog.”

The title was drawing me in like a tractor beam.

Be honest. You wouldn’t have moved on either.

So, I clicked on the link, hoping beyond hope that I wasn’t about to stumble upon some very inappropriate farming images.

With my head turned slightly, eyes half-open and mouse cursor ready to close the page in a millisecond – if needed - I read the following title,

Mayo vs. Miracle Whip. What say you?

Jackpot! We have a winner!

Even though raising a debate between Mayo & Miracle Whip is nothing but a distraction from real problems in our world – like Cheese Whiz – you gotta like any blog that dips into the arena of sandwich spreads!

But was this a one-hit wonder?

I went into the archives to find out, and didn’t have to dig too deep to discover this was, in fact, the real deal.

NGIP (which is short for Nanny Goats in Panties and pronounced NGIP) is the home to some very witty and creative stuff as well as Lacy, an actually little goat – albeit stuffed – with adorable pink panties.

The author, Margaret Andrews, is a “huge baseball fan”, “lyrically challenged” and has an “overabundance of cynicism”. She’s basically me…except female, living in Sacramento and has a lot more followers.

I’m convinced that Nanny Goats in Panties will certainly accomplish its goal for, “Eliminating All Hope for World Peace. One Post at a Time.”

I am a fan of Nanny Goats in Panties. But if, after all I just wrote, you’re still not sold…then let Margaret’s own words, regarding a confrontation with an overzealous security guard, bring you over to the dark side.

I got all Zsa Zsa Gabor on him and slapped like I was swimming the 100-meter dash.


I never thought I’d utter these words but…Check out Nanny Goats in Panties

Have a good one,


  1. "and pronounced NGIP"...
    YOU, sir, are killing ME.
    Thank you so much for the kind words. You're a gentleman and a scholar. May the birds of paradise carry your career to the skies and shower down raindrops of humoUr on every living thing.


From your mind to my mind:
