There’s a classic probability question known as the Monty Hall problem. In its most difficult form, the problem requires that you first decide whether you would rather have a large sum of money, or a goat; this is the form the professor posed to us during a lecture break on Friday. So we immediately tried to work out what the most expensive goat in the world would be.
The GoatWeb classified listings are all on the order of a few hundred to a thousand dollars for show goats – mostly boers and nubians. Pygmies seem to be cheaper, hovering around one to two hundred dollars. Master Zumbuck, a boer of tremendous lineage, is on sale for the low low price of $2,300. A shot of goat semen runs about $50 plus shipping.
Dude. I want a goat.
