It really gets my goat!

Because of his hairy body the mad and brutal Roman Emperor Caligula made it a crime, punishable by death, to mention a goat in his presence.

Being a draconian ruler, Caligula also levied a 2.5% tax on the money claimed in every law suit. However, from 13 April 2015 Chris Grayling has increased civil court fees to £10,000 to commerce a civil claim for £200, 000 or more, which is arguable more onerous than Caligula’s law.
