planning to burn it at a preplanned date and time. Since that seems to be what people want.
No - the whole tradition is arson (or at least some form of illegal vandalism). A pre-planned burning ruins it - not least as its a gambling opportunity.
   
Actually, the tradition is for the goat to survive the season.   
   
The arson part is just a bunch of dumb fucks who think that burning is part of the tradition.   
   
If no one had burned the first goat the successive goats would have probably remained intact and no one would be making book on the goat's fate.   
   
I have to admit, though, part of the reason I check the webcam is because maybe I'll see the burning as it happens. I missed it by mere minutes one year.   
   
Having said that, I am always glad when the goat makes it through, unscathed.

Google doesn't know the Okie dialect because of its extreme rarity; it is only spoken natively in the region of Archer City, Florida.

That has nothing to do with it.  Archer City is nowhere near there, as you can plainly see on the map.

Obviously you aren't looking closely enough. Since the residents of Archer City have been banned, it's clearly in Bannister Oblast.

Except on the first and second Tuesday of every week according to the Attic Calendar, when it is.

The goat appears to have survived for two years in a row now. Looks like the workers are beginning to dismantle it at the moment.

Yes. The goat survived.   
   
Someone tried to burn the Science Club's goat. It was slightly damaged.   
   
But the big guy made it.
