I got an email from an organization, saying what my mother got me for Christmas. I guess I should have read it a bit more carefully. I read it, and called my mother. The conversation went something like this:
Me (in an accusatory tone of voice): Mom, did you just buy me A GOAT?
Mom: Yeah, your sister and I though it was pretty funny.
Me: Why did you buy me a goat?
Mom: Well, you're hard to buy for and we wanted something you couldn't return.
Me: What am I going to do with a goat?
Mom: It's really not for you.
Me: Oh, who's my goat for?
Mom: It's for food for the poor.
Me: WHAT, SOMEONE'S GOING TO EAT ME GOAT?
Mom: No, it's for "Food For The Poor"?
Me: To eat?
Mom: No, to milk. The milk is the food.
Me: I'm not milking a goat!
Mom: No, they give it to poor people. They get the goat. They milk it.
Me: So I don't even get my own goat for Christmas?
Mom: We were thinking of getting your a donkey but it was too expensive.
Mom: They have donkeys, too. But we started thinking about chickens, but we didn't think 20 chickens was as good of a gift.
Me: Real chickens? (me, re-reading the e-card and clicking to find this:

Mom: No, for the poor.
Me (looking at website): Mom, you know, for $10 more you could have gotten me The Three Little Pigs.
Mom: I saw that, but you're allergic to pork.
Me: But you said I'm not eating them.
Mom: I know, but we thought about a donkey, but it was too expensive.
Okay, can anyone top that for being bizarre?
