|A Geep: Goat + Sheep|
In case you were wondering, a GEEP is not what happens when a goat and a sheep know each other (in biblical terms). Those ones are called sheep-goat hybrids. Okay, okay, a sheep-goat hybrid is what happens when a goat and sheep consummate their union. On a field. In the dead of the night. Or in the middle of the day. Same result. Happy now?
I am almost afraid to ask the goat (if it was the 'guy') what he said to her (the sheep) wey she come 'gree' for him. Toasting that works! Mr. Goat, I hail you o. *winks*
Actually, a Geep is a chimera, i.e., the result of "combining the embryos of a goat and a sheep."
Instead of being happy, this discovery freaked me out. Why?
Because as far as I know, there was no Geep on Noah's ark.
Yes, any animal that did not enter Noah's ark before the Great Flood, should not be eaten. Geep fall into that category. Seeing that the first geep was created in 1984 in Australia, it definitely was NOT on Noah's ark.
Even just typing the word 'Geep' sef is giving me cause for concern. I just want to run around screaming: "ALUUUUUUU! ALU EME!!! Abomination!!!!" (Thanks Nollywood)
I love goat meat. It is so versatile and tasty (think asun, isi ewu, goat meat pepper soup).
However, I cannot eat geep meat. Sorry. Yes, I know that one part of it is a goat, but still ... Ehn ehn! It is not on the menu. I am not that adventurous.
What about you? Would you eat geep meat? Use it to make suya? Vegetable soup? I'm curious ...
