Stid Goat is a fictional internet character created by McLaughlin, musician/carpenter Roger Vaughan, and others during a basefook thread. McL is not known for his attention to semantics in soc-med settings and baffled me with something about "...baaaaaa... ...stid!" He meant "bastard," I saw a superstar named Stid, or Mr. Goat until he hired me to form Baaad Publicity, which I recently left because Stid cheated on Marion Goatillard, who is like a kid sister to me, with that fat pig Esther the Wonder Pig. Yes, Eshter is fine, but no reason to betray my beloved Marion. Tho' Stid and I are at odds, McLaughlin is still my friend, I still love my wife, and this painting is masterful.
