    Detroit Should Use Goats To Mow Vacant Lots

    WHY WOULD YOU EVER USE A LAWNMOWER INSTEAD OF GETTING A GOAT?

    Last year, a councilman proposed bringing goats to Detroit to graze and maintain the city's many vacant lots.

    YES. DETROIT, DO THIS. GET THE GOATS.

    Detroit could become America's Goat Comeback City!

    They wouldn't even be the first city to hire goats as landscapers.

    Portland has used urban goats for a few years!

    Cleveland too!

    Los Angeles brought in goats to clean up part of downtown.

    Google even brought some goats to their Mountain View, Calif., campus.

    One drawback: Goats are kinda slow at getting the job done.

    WHO CARES?

    Goats are like nature's Roombas.

    It's simple: Detroit's gotta get some goats.
