The Internet is a weird and wild space where brilliance sometimes blossoms like ivy. Often, a passingly amusing idea will take hold, flourish, mutate and take on a new life of its own as a zeitgeist-infiltrating meme that reflects some core truths about our culture.

Other times, not so much. This is one of those latter times.

Take a beloved , instantly recognizable pop song, add a screaming goat and voila: the "Goat Edition" meme is born.  Enjoy!
