Journal of the American Psycho-Analytic Association 4, 1956, No. 1: Earl A. Loomis. 'The Concurrent Presentation of a Rare Detail in the Dreams of Two Patients.'

On the one day two patients reported dreams of a goat and a goat-like creature with prominent scrotum and pendulous testes respectively. While thinking over the material the author realized that on the previous day he had heard from another patient a story to do with the castration of pigs. This had led to further associations which convinced him that the goat-scrotum theme had been present in his own unconscious. The problem was how the theme was conveyed to the patients. It suddenly occurred to him that both patients had attended a football game in which the Navy was a contender and that he had told the patients some days previously that he would not be returning to the Navy. A goat was the Navy team's mascot. The author was the goat.
