News anchors are professionals who train to deliver the news without being swayed by their emotions. However, there are times when we realize that anchors are humans, too. Sometimes, they break down in tears to deliver tragic news, or they can’t stop laughing like the one featured in the video below!
It happened recently when these news anchors had to report about a man who decided to leave everything to become a goat.
Yes, a goat.
This man who did the unthinkable is a 35-year-old named Thomas Thwaites, a famous designer from London. You might actually know him from a TED video, in which he introduces an innovative toaster that he designed.
Despite his success, however, Thomas got tired from the stress that he faced everyday.
So, he decided to take “holidays” off of being human – for three days.
And it apparently wasn’t an impulsive decision, either. Not only did Thomas sign up for a study about goat psychology, he also got prosthetic “goat legs” made from a clinic.
He also got a fake goat’s stomach, which would digest the grass for him!
Thomas becoming a goat definitely gained a lot of attention worldwide, resulting him to write a book about it.
Although he thought living as an animal would be peaceful and joyous, Thomas said that the experience did come with hardships.
According to an interview he did with the Telegraph, he said, “I suffered quite a lot as a goat, because of the slope I was constantly falling over, and of course I had to eat grass.”
When reporting about his bizarre vacation, anchors ended up laughing so hard that they were crying by the end of the segment.
And judging by the pictures that Thomas provided, I understand why these anchors just couldn’t keep it together.
