  • It is certainly NOT a Yugo-(AT) !!!
    AT = automatic transmission ?? an oxymoron in and of itself!
    OR an unstoppable contagion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I should note that I'm assuming the car is either a Volvo or a Saab.

    August 12, 2011

  • I think I've got it all figured out. See my complex calculations over on new interface (hint: one of the goats is named Norgay, and the other is named Funland).

    August 12, 2011

  • Yes, but which goat?
    Mwohahahahaha!

    August 8, 2011

  • I'll give you a hint, bilby: one of the goats is in the fridge.

    August 8, 2011

  • Thanks, blaff. I just got it out and put it on the kitchen table.

    August 7, 2011

  • Which door's the fridge behind?

    August 7, 2011

  • Sorry, ruzuzu, were you eating that? It's in the fridge if you want it.

    August 7, 2011

  • Stick with door number 1. Definitely. And be a sport about it. Nobody likes a sore loser. Especially a goat.

    August 6, 2011

  • Hey! Who moved my cheese?

    August 4, 2011

  • That reminds me, I left my cheese in the car. I'll be right back.

    August 4, 2011

  • Didn't Ford make a car called the Capri? That would nicely solve the problem.

    August 4, 2011

  • I thought the Hall was already cleared by Bilby's cargoat.

    August 4, 2011

  • You should change your answer to door #3, because a goat is better than a car.

    Goats have personalities, cars don't. And as dontcry notes, you can get cheese out of a goat, but I never heard of anyone getting cheese out of a car.

    August 4, 2011

  • I am still wary of the tiger-go-at-ya door(s)! That would clear the hall!

    August 4, 2011

  • Still and all, I'd take the plantation shutters. They're a timeless fashion statement.

    August 3, 2011

  • I think the value has to include a sustainability quotient. If the goat is a lactating female, you've got a bit more of a fair fight on your hands. If you've purchased a tiny nub of goat cheese recently, you get my drift.

    August 3, 2011

  • Exactly. Who's to say that goat isn't worth more than the car?

    August 3, 2011

  • First, I want to see the goat behind door #3. Trust no one, especially Monty Hall. Second, statistically speaking, I should accept Hall's offer to switch from door #1 to door #2. If I do not change my initial decision, I still have the same 1 in 3 chance to win the car; whereas, if I switch to door #2 I have increased my chance to win the car by another 1/3. But, statistics lack the human element of the "gut" feeling, so I'm sticking with door #1.

    August 3, 2011

  • I'll take horizontal blinds, plantation style, for $200.

    August 3, 2011

  • I offer you the chance to switch from curtains to horizontal blinds that, despite the pleasing film noir effect, do tend to accumulate dust and/or provide a near fatal attraction to your cat.

    August 3, 2011

  • Looks like it's curtains for Monty Hall

    August 3, 2011

  • *groans*

    August 3, 2011

  • Cargoat.
    Cargoat Monty Hall, runsillybuggerover.

    August 3, 2011

  • Cargo who?

    August 3, 2011

  • Cargo.

    August 3, 2011

  • Who's there?

    August 3, 2011

  • Knock knock!

    August 3, 2011

  • I might as well knock on one of these doors.

    August 3, 2011

  • Sounds like that's part of the problem.

    August 3, 2011

  • I don't want a car and I don't want a goat.

    August 3, 2011

  • *wonders how to calculate the air-speed velocity of a laden goat*

    August 3, 2011

  • Ahhh, the age-old 3 doors, 2 goats and a car conundrum.
    The answer is: blue -- no, green *aaaargh*
    Wait, that was another Monty altogether.

    August 3, 2011

  • So you're on a game show, and Monty Hall tells you that there are three doors in front of you. Behind one door is a car. Behind the other two doors there are goats. You want the car, and you pick door No. 1. Monty Hall then tells there's a goat behind door No. 3, and he offers you the chance to switch from door No. 1 to door No. 2. Should you change your answer?

    Also, this would be a great name for a band.
