Goats and Kudzu II

Back in April I mentioned that Peachtree city was looking in to using goats to clear kudzu.

Well, they’ve approved $10,000 to do it. This is a net savings of $377,000 over using chemicals. I am, however, reminded of the Simpsons episode where Bart’s tree lizards get loose and eat all the pigeons:

For decimating our pigeon population, and making Springfield a less oppressive place to while away our worthless lives, I present you with this scented candle.
— Mayor Quimby, “Bart, the Mother”

% Away from the speech, Skinner and Lisa talk.

Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn’t that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we’re overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They’ll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren’t the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we’re prepared for that. We’ve lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we’re stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that’s the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.

Exactly.
