Brace yourselves, we’re about to broaden your respective horizons. Did you know that people sometimes gather and compete in attempt to put underpants on goats? The official term for this unusual pastime is “Goat Dressing.”

Frank Harrell (aka Cowboy Frank) describes Goat Dressing as a two-person event created especially for gay rodeos:

“The team stands 50 feet from the point where the goat is tethered. One of the team members has a pair of jockey-style underwear worn over their forearms. When the whistle sounds, the team runs to the goat. The team member without the underwear picks up the goat’s rear hooves, grabs the underwear from around the other member’s arms, and pulls it up the legs of the goat. Both team members must then race back to the start/finish line. The underwear must stay over the goat’s tail bone until both members of the team run back past the timer.”

For those of you unacquainted with gay rodeos, they’ve been around since 1976 and take place across the US and Canada. In addition to traditional rodeo events, Gay Rodeos also include such special events as Goat Dressing and the Wild Drag Race, which is a race between a woman, a man, a drag queen, and a steer. So now you know.

But wait, Goat Dressing is even sillier when you actually watch it happen:
