The Gavle Goat is up

[Update: The goat survived, for the third year in a row!]

For 51 years, the gallant people of Gavle, Sweden, have been putting up a straw goat, and arsonists have been burning it. Apparently, they didn’t have Twitter back then, and needed alternate ways to get into flame wars.
