Fainting goats

Legend has it that coffee was discovered when Kaldi the herder found his goats dancing merrily about after consuming cherries from the coffee bush. So what the hell were these goats chewing?

It’s a ridiculous video. I can’t stop watching it.

Wikipedia’s got the science.

    “With us now is a goat lover and expert . . .”

    Best introduction to an interview ever.
