Goat

Internet Goat Management Protocol

Goats have a rather peculiar habit of "pinging" each other.  One bleats and another will respond.  My SO and I were talking about this, and I made the suggestion, "Oh, it's like an ACK packet!"

Sometimes two goats will start pinging back and forth incessantly, getting louder and louder each time.  I guess you could call that a ping flood.
