I've said it before and I will say it again. I hate geese. Since that apparently is just a tangent too far for the rules discussion thread I've started my own. Admit it you hate them too.

I'm half tempted to make an evil race of gooseman in my next PbP game. Slaughter then at will because the reproduce like mofos and shit in anything they get there webbed feet on.

I knew it. Endless "The Goose King" Flight strikes again.

Soon after this post, Ladybird was found dead in a tragic but hilarious suicide involving a jar of skittles and two woodchippers at opposite ends of the country. Police have been advised to not consider the matter further, as they have families to think of.

To move discussion over from the Rules Discussion thread...
We have goose every year for Thanksgiving. They are a lot more expensive but much more tasty. Duck is also good but they usually aren't big enough. I know Turkey is mostly an American thing but do they eat a lot of goose in Europe, Asia or Australia?
Leg of lamb is the standard fancy roast in my Australian family.

I was bitten by a goose once, so I can't say I am a fan, but turkeys are the real bastards among birds.

I have to ask; is there a backstory to the goose hatred?

Flocks of them shit all over my lawn all winter long. They hiss and attack my kids when they try to play on said lawn.

I actually had a serious PC / goose fight in Rolemaster once. We had a couple drop in players who'd only played D&D and the PCs stayed at this farm overnight and they had an aggressive watch goose that pecked one of the new guy's fighter. So he was mad and planned to go out and get that goose once everyone else was asleep. He crept out into the darkness, sword and shield in hand. Heard the flapping of great wings in the darkness. Then with a terrific honk the beast was upon him. In the end he had a broken arm and few hit points remaining but the creature was finally slain. Admittedly I beefed the goose up a few levels, RM can do that. But he had the goose bronzed and mounted on his shield :grin:

Never had goose. Hard to find and pricey around here. Good duck is difficult enough to find.

Christmas dinner classics here are turkey and/or "chester" (a big ol' monster chicken that's been cross-bred and trademarked by a local food giant in the 1980s); baked ham (an actual cured ham, not a fresh leg of pork, often deboned and coated in breadcrumbs and honey); and salted cod, in a nod to our Portuguese colonist forefathers (often as bacalhau espiritual, a pulled cod casserole with bread, milk and/or cream, onions, carrots, laurel, nutmeg and plenty of olive oil).

Man, I can hardly wait for Christmas.

I'm Brazilian. But we were a Portuguese colony for the better part of our history — we speak Portuguese (rather than Spanish like all oyr neighbors) and the influence in cuisine, architecture and culture in general is all over the place.

I was thinking about actually cooking a goose this Christmas.

We normally cook goose for Christmas, as my wife is from Russsia. It is so juicy and tender, full of flavour, makes turkey taste like eating cardboard. Easy to cook as well, we don't bother with stuffing, but roast stuffing in a pot beside the goose, drizzled with goose fat. Mmmmmm.

You summed it up great! BTW - my wife is Russian too.

Geese are evil. A friend of ours has a bit of land and keeps, among other things, a flock of geese. And they'll attack anyone that comes too close to the front gate. Vicious little walking roast dinners.

Your evil friend keeps evil geese? I'm conflicted as to whether I like or loathe him or her.
I'm mildly proud/amused my kids all refer to geese as 'evil geese' whenever they talk about them. I wonder sometimes what their preschool teachers think of that.

If they have any sense, at worst, they will they will think your children are being redundant.

To be semi-serious for a moment, I totally get this. It's bad enough that your property is being defiled by these things, but going after your family is well over the line. I mean, I'm a veggie bitch who doesn't want to see an animal hurt or killed, but if it were me, I'd be like, "Zeek, get the shotgun; the neighbors are gonna get fresh goose for dinner tonight."

Fortunately a slingshot with ice cubes has turned out to be an economical non harmful solution 90% of the time. Sometimes I have to walk at them with a big stick and noisemaker to get them to leave.

Ice cube slingshot is a straight up brilliant idea!

But Canadian geese are cool, right? They're so polite, and have excellent health care ...
No. They suck the greatest balls of all. The should be renamed American Geese. Loud, shit on everything, hostile and just rude.

They enjoy protected status as a migratory bird but they never frickin leave my lawn. Assholes!
