On Wednesday, former baseball player turned author and reality TV star Jose Canseco was driving in Nevada, reportedly en route to shoot a documentary about fainting goats, when the police pulled him over. The officer was probably surprised to find Canseco and his girlfriend -- model Leila Knight --riding with two goats in the back of their car -- and one of the four-legged creatures was wearing a diaper.
Canseco and Knight both tweeted the photo and reported that the cop "laughed at our poor goats."
Jose's Twitter feed also teased the documentary and urged people to visit his and Leila's YouTube channel for a preview:
TheBlaze visited the couple's YouTube channel in hopes of catching a glimpse of the goats and possibly the traffic stop that involved them. Unfortunately, it appears that those clips may have been deleted. Despite being promoted by Canseco and linked on his Twitter feed on Nov. 20, the latest two clips on the channel are no longer available. In fact, the earliest clip that can be seen is from July of this year:

Jose also had a realization about melting icebergs, and the possibility that global warming might have prevented the Titanic from sinking:
How much does Mr. Canseco love Twitter? He's hoping that heaven has social media:
