Goat week is an ancient tradition on Fetlife.com that occurs annually on April 23-30 where in which all users customarily place crazy pictures of goats as their avatars.
The practice stems back to the 1830's on Fetlife where in which a single man was said to upload a picture of a goat god known as Pan wearing a denim suit and sporting a clown nose and mohawk hair cut, though some critics argue the god pan wasn't invented until 1922. The tradition was said to be inspired by Percy Shelly's poem Ozymandias.
Goat week has been known to increase exposure of crazy goat pictures on fetlife during goat week by over 9000%.
