100 mysterious goats have invaded an Idaho neighborhood

They came. They saw. They ate everything in sight.

About 100 goats took over a residential neighborhood in Boise, Idaho, on Friday morning, and they weren’t kidding around. The mysterious herd trotted from lawn to lawn for an all-you-can-graze buffet, per local NBC affiliate KTVB’s investigation.

Boise has seen goats on horseback, and this Washington Post map of “literally every goat in the United States” shows the city is surrounded by the creatures. So it was only a matter of time before goats claimed the city as their own, really.

Animal control apparently showed up with one truck before quickly realizing it wouldn’t contain the rampant kids, KTVB says. But around 10:45 am., the source of the invasion was revealed: The herd was corralled into a truck owned by We Rent Goats, an Idaho business that delivers live weed munchers to trim up your property. These classy business goats were simply doing their job — and rounding up some free advertising along the way.

Stephen Colbert is sarcastically impressed Trump ‘stealing’ migrant kids was a ‘low point’ for Ivanka, too

On Thursday, first daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump “sat down for an interview, and she came admirably close to displaying empathy,” Stephen Colbert said on The Late Show. She called her father’s separating migrant children from the parents a low point in his presidency and “a low point for me as well.” “‘But somehow I got through it by saying and doing nothing,'” Colbert finished her sentence. “And what does she mean by was a low point? It’s still happening! That’s like being inside your burning house, going: ‘You know, when this chair I’m sitting in caught fire, that was a real wake-up call. Do you smell anything?’ But Ivanka assures us that her dad stealing children is giving her the feels.”

Ivanka also “tackled the burning issue of her father’s attacks on journalism,” Colbert said. She said, without elaborating, that she does not think the press is “the enemy of the people,” as the president has claimed. And “the president noticed Ivanka was on TV — because it involved two of his favorite things: Ivanka and TV — so he tweeted” that his daughter was half-right, because it’s only “the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people.” Colbert’s audience booed, and he noted that Ivanka said other things, too, including about her job in the White House. He ended with a popular question for the first daughter: “What do you do?” Watch below.

Mark Hamill goes on Jimmy Kimmel to get some of that sweet, sweet Han Solo jacket auction cash

Han Solo’s jacket from The Empire Strikes Back is going up for auction, “and it’s expected to go for an estimated $1.3 million,” Jimmy Kimmel said on Thursday’s Kimmel Live. “And just think of the thrill you’d get form owning this jacket. You could say to your guests, ‘This is Han Solo’s jacket,’ and they’d say, ‘Cool.'” But why should Harrison Ford get all the glory? Mark Hamill walked on the show to auction off some of his Luke Skywalker props — and if you don’t remember them, he has (dubious) photos. Watch below.

Man looking through old collection discovers Mickey Mantle baseball card worth $1 million

When he saw an advertisement for a 1952 Mickey Mantle baseball card being sold at auction with an estimated value of $3.5 million, he was sure this was a typo.

The man, who asked to be identified only by his first name, John, told The Associated Press that he used to collect baseball cards while growing up in Connecticut, and after seeing the ad, he was inspired to look at his own collection. His mother combined his collection with his older brother Ed’s baseball cards, and stored them in a box in her attic. After she died in 2006, the box left her attic and went to John’s home in New Jersey.

It turns out, the box contained five Mantle Topps cards from 1952. When John found out the Mantle card in the advertisement sold for $2.88 million, he asked Heritage Auctions to look at his cards. One card was in excellent condition and valued at $1 million, and it’s now up for auction. John and Ed’s father collected stamps and coins, and John told AP the card collection is in such good shape because his dad taught his sons how to value their collections. “We didn’t abuse them,” he said. “They were a collection. We watched how he did things and we did the same.”
