Get the Your Goat mug.
Basic Definition: To annoy you to the point of getting pissed.

Sub Definition: Goat: The goat is a metaphor for your state of peacefulness. When your goat is with you, you are calm and collected. When your goat is stolen, you become angry and upset.

Notes: Getting someone's goat can not be a quick process and must be done by not being directly mean. The best way to get someone's goat is by means of clever annoyance.
SIMPLE USE IN A SENTENCE:
- I'm going to get your goat!
- I got Sam's goat today.

EXAMPLE OF INVALID GOAT GETTING:
Jeff: You're a shitty guitar player!
Mark: *pissed*

Jeff was just an asshole. That does not gain Jeff a goat.

Pissing someone off with the intent of pissing them off does not gain you a goat.

EXAMPLE OF VALID GOAT GETTING:
Jeff : Hey, how you doing?
Sam: fine, how are you.
Jeff: Good, and you?
Sam: I'm fine.
Jeff: That's good, how are you?
{repeat}
Sam: *pissed*

Jeff just got Sam's goat.

Annoying someone to the point of them getting mad does indeed gain you a goat.

COMMON PHRASES IN REFERENCE TO GOAT GETTING:
Taunts:
"Better keep that goat tied up! I'm gonna get 'em!"

Retorts:
"My goat is encased in a block of cement and buried beneath the earth's crust! He's not going anywhere."

Insults about the security of one's goat:
"Your goat is roaming around free in your front yard with a sign around his neck that says 'FREE GOAT'. I'd barely have to shake a stick, and your goat would come running."

Additional Note:
If the process of goat-getting is taking place in an email conversation, further taunting can be achieved by sending a picture of the newly acquired goat.

To aggravate someone.

The saying "Get Your Goat" supposedly originated from the early horse racing days, where goats were kept with nervous race horses to keep them calm before the race, and if you wanted to beat the competition you would get their goat causing their horse to become agitated and unable to race.

Get the get your goat mug.
Phrase used instead of whatever floats your boat to describe that any course of action is acceptable with the person that says it. Goats are more bouyant than boats. Therefore the phrase is more flexible than boats. And better.
