From the Children’s Friend, January 1932 —
“What is Mr. Billy Goat Called in Spellingtown?”
The village goat is not outdone
When spelling honors may be won.
His title takes a graceful trend
From horns unto his nether end.
I was hoping that we could sic this goat on people who make egregious usage errors (sometimes masquerading as spelling errors) in the bloggernacle.
I’d start by having him ram anybody who writes “flack” for “flak.”
