NEW BERLIN -- Poplar Creek Elementary's principal locked lips with a goat Friday as a way to motivate his students.

Kids raise money for their school every year, and this time their prize was Mr. S. kissing a farm animal. Current and former students met Friday to watch the big moment.

"I thought I was gonna puke," said Payton Kaiser.

"Smelled disgusting, probably tasted disgusting," said Hillary Owusu.

"I just felt bad for him," said Pratham Patel.

"I was like, wait, what happened there?" said Connor Zizzo.

"It was pretty weird," said Aryanna Frederick.

The principal smooched two goats two times each.

"Not as wet as I thought it would be, so that was a plus.  Really not that wet.  The look in the goats eye was a little concerning, but mostly fur so I'm OK," said Matt Stempniewski, Principal.

His students are still in disbelief.

"I can't believe he did that.  It was just disgusting to see," said Jack Owen.

"I think that's kind of weird, but he's weird and that's why he's the best principal," said Mackenzie Reiter.

The students surpassed their goal and raised more than $13,000 for their New Berlin school.
