We may have to take this one case by case..
When a steaming plate of pasta with sauce is placed before it, if the goat in question digs in and swaggers around happily afterward singing goatlike shanties, and then consumes dark chocolate, I would say that this goat has obviously been touched by the Noodly Appendages and has been blessed by the FSM.
And similarly if a goat gives extremely luscious milk upon thinking of the FSM, how can we not embrace him/her as a brother/sister?
However, if a goat feasts on newspaper, twine, and wet rags, but turns up his/her nose at the Holy Provender, it is safe to say that this goat is no friend of ours!
The pasta is the life.
