I aspire to be a youthful goat

Today, Verónica explained that Venezuelan higher ups are chivitos. This is just silly, because chivito means “young goat.”

I envisioned conversations with coworkers: “Oh no, a baby goat just caught me checking gmail” or "We really need to impress the little goats with this presentation." Then I pictured a pack of carefree, suited goats having a board room party, with one goat wearing a tailcoat and top hat, attempting a thumbs-up with his hoof (he had just signed a major contract).

To aid my imagination, I went google-hunting for goats in suits. This was an alarmingly effortless task:
