In between the Superdome power outage, Beyonce's killer performance, and oh yeah, that nail-biting football game, I noticed an abundance of farm and dairy-themed commercials last Sunday night. Some were funny, some were powerful, and some were just downright weird. Watch all the advertisements below, and let us know which one was your favorite!

I had to save the best post (for me) for last, the one that lets me talk about goats. I don't know what it is about cuddly animals, but I can't resist them!
After a whirl around Achadinha Cheese Company’s creamery, Donna led us around to the “teenager” area of the farm. Here, adolescent goats can frolic in their own space before joining the rest of the herd in their enormous barn and pastures. From this vantage point, we had a superb view of Donna’s nearly 300 acres, vast emerald green fields with rolling hills. Larry Peter of Petaluma Creamery is a neighbor, and across the way, we saw McEvoy Ranch (think olive oil). All we heard were goats, birds of prey, and the wind. It was awesome. The farm cat, adopted from Peter, immediately came to inspect us newcomers as we held out our hands for the goats to sniff/nibble.
Manhattan local news site DNAinfo spotted this goat dining with a couple at Famous Famiglia's pizza parlor.
Correspondent Leslie Albrecht gathered customer's reactions:
“Get out of here. That’s insane,” said Ed Sullivan, 37, a construction worker from Long Island. “It’s not sanitary — well — I guess it depends on the goat."
The goat is apparently a minor Passaic, NJ celebrity named Cocoa, whose companion Cyrus Fakroddin occasionally takes her for a trip to the big city.
