Goat One-upmanship: Bart & Brownie
"I'm the biggest, most wonderful and handsome goat on Three Dog Farm. I command respect and I take care of business. I'm brave and I can jump higher than any of the other goats. I'm the king of the pasture and head of the pack."
"Yah? But does he have a horn? I don't see any horns. I have a horn. Well..., it's not very big and I don't know what happen to the other one, but I can butt better than any of the other goats, as long as I lean to the right. I may not be the biggest but I'm unique. Bart tries to push his weight around here, but we know who the real "head" master is, don't we?"
