Idiom of the week: Act the giddy goat: Behave Foolishly

History: The phrase ‘act the giddy goat’ (or ‘play the giddy goat’) wasn’t coined from scratch but was built up by degrees from earlier phrases. ‘Giddy’ has been used to mean foolish or stupid since the first millennium and has been applied as an adjective to all sorts of creatures.

Ex: My picks have me wondering if my prep is acting the giddy goat.
