According to research recently announced, pygmy goats develop “accents” as they grow up.

This groundbreaking research by Dr Elodie Briefer and Dr Alan McElligott at Queen Mary’s School of Biological and Chemical Science at the University of London was published in Animal Behaviour.

Should Dr McElligott be nominated for Dull Man of the Year 2012? (Dr Briefer can’t be a nominee — she’s the wrong gender.)

Or should the goats be nominated?
