Message Prank .... ' Goat Attack' Paid Apps !!

Posted on the 19 May 2015 by Sampathkumar Sampath
Most children and adults are hooked to the mobile phones all the time – engaged in social media, sending messages and more .... If you're looking for a new way to prank your friends, why not send them a bunch of goat photos out of nowhere?  -  sounds silly or stupid ?  The domestic goat (Capra aegagrus hircus) is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. The goat is a member of the family Bovidae and is closely related to the sheep.  There reportedly  are over 300 distinct breeds of goat.  message prank .... ' goat attack' paid apps !! The Online Sales is picking up in India and many retailers are alarmed at its penetration and the discounts offered.  One of the top leaders, Amazon is globally selling everything online – it is stated that one can purchase all kinds of lawnmowers from Amazon, from old-fashioned rotary push mowers to ultra-modern robotic mowers ~and that is not all, - they’ll even let you rent goats to keep your lawn under control. This eco-friendly service is being offered in the lawn care section of Amazon’s growing Home Services.  So, one can rent goats to mow their lawn but not a person to do the yard work !   2015 is the Year of the Sheep according to Chinese zodiac. With fortune-tellers predicting accidents and an unstable economy and some parents-to-be fretting over the year's reputation for docile kids, it wasn't exactly warming everyone's heart. This animal sign, which comes once every dozen years, can be said to have an identity crisis. Known variably as the Year of the Goat, Sheep or Ram, the sign's confusion stems from its Chinese character, "yang," which broadly describes any of the ruminating mammals, with or without horns. Many Chinese prefer to translate it as the "Year of the Sheep" because sheep are more cute and cuddly, and large sheep figures have appeared around the capital's shopping areas in recent weeks. The goat, however, is more likely to be the original meaning because it was a popular farm animal among Han Chinese who started the zodiac tradition, Huang Yang, a researcher on the roles of sheep and goats in Chinese culture, was quoted by the official Xinhua News agency as saying. message prank .... ' goat attack' paid apps !! Sending bunch of goat photos as a prank is not exactly a stupid idea  - called ‘Goat Attack’, a new website created in a single night that exists for the sole purpose of messaging your friends a barrage of goat photos one after another. While Goat Attack is similar to other SMS pranking services like Pug A Day, which sends your friends a photo of a pug 100 days in a row, it's also far more foul-mouthed. Goat Attack also requires you to include your name to give people a chance to reciprocate a Goat Attack once the dust has settled.                          Some technological innovations excite people – do we really require an ‘apps’  to send friends pictures of goats, purporting to be from the goats themselves, along with faintly disappointing goat puns and how would it be considered popular ! – that too a paid service !!!  Your are unlikely to receive it in Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai .... for you have to live in the US to receive a Goat Attack, you don’t have to live there to send one. Accordingly, one can go online and pay$0.79 to bombard your  expat friend with goat puns.  Would you feel gleeful ~and what is likely reaction of your recipient !!!  Do you consider this a prank – and it that going to amuse them ?  It costs $0.79 for the basic package, which guarantees six goat messages and puns. Upgrading to the "Back Hand Barrage" will cost you $1.19, but it's the better value with 14 messages. Goat Attack is HTTPS secure and payments are handled through PayPal and credit card payments through BraintreePayments. The Goat attack web states that they don't care about the user’s  personal information and would  collect as little as possible.  Its further states that –  ‘We expect you to not abuse our system and only to send funny goat attacks to your friends whom you have a phone number. We are not responsible for any carrier data charges you or your recipient(s) may incur while using Goat Attack.’ What do you feel about this ? With regards – S. Sampathkumar
