You learn something every day, and today I learned that goats are nature's weed whackers. And since there's a weed-infested area of the Upper West Side in need of help, the Riverside Park Conservancy is letting some lucky goats snack to their hearts' content there this spring. This is the wholesome news I needed today. Hopefully the goats will get to do some touristy stuff while they're here too. Read more about the amazingly named "Goatham" project here.

Also, because I constantly have Game of Thrones on the brain right now... enjoy this very special version of the theme music.
