Meet your new mayor.


The town of Fair Haven, Vermont, has sworn in its honorary mayor––a three-year-old goat named Lincoln.

According to town manager, Joseph Gunter, the "position" of pet mayor was conceived as a fundraiser for a playground and evolved into an opportunity to impart a knowledge of civics to young children.

Lincoln was fitted with his very own mayoral sash when his handlers took him to the town hall for his swearing in. Town Clerk Suzanne Dechame and the select board were on hand to deliver the oath of office.

Oh, and Lincoln defecated on the floor during the ceremony, which is peak 2019.

That's a rather bold move immediately after taking office, and clean-up was left to the police chief and other attendees.

Lincoln's already ignited quite the conversation on social media.

Again, this is peak 2019, ya'll.

No context is the best context.

We see what you did there.

Goats for America!

Oh, gurl. You dodged a bullet, didn't you?

Don't be hatin'.

We wish Lincoln well as he serves the rest of his term, and unlike his famous namesake, we hope he avoids theaters in the near future.

That's why best friends are so important.

BFFs are forged in many ways. They're there for you in triumph and sorrow. They hold your hand. T

They know where the bodies are buried because they helped bury them. That's why it's so heartbreaking to lose them.

It's just a bitter pill to swallow when it's a relationship you thought was going to be endless.

Redditor FindingDale wanted to hear all the reasons why sometimes we just have to say goodbye to certain people in life, by asking:

How did you lose your best friend?

Humans have had an undeniably significant impact on our environment and the other species that inhabit the planet with us.

What might happen if humans weren't here to exert that influence, though?

What if we never had?
