Yes. It was always going to come down to this. A final showdown was inevitable.
What I find annoying is just how much political influence they have! A international bilateral agreement not to harm them?!? What blackmail do they have on the Canadians? Did they secretly record them being impolite or something?

Every winter, Geese from Canada fly down to Portland. Guess our winter is more acceptable to them. So we have these flocks where I work, and they crap all over the damn place. So when we do our outside patrols, it's like doing an obstacle course. The bigger ones are the real pain, as the smaller ones tends to hang out on the main grassy area at the front of the property.

The big ones have settled on one of the fab supervisors named Roger. He's a really nice guy, but a few times, they've come at him as he was going to and from his car at night. It's now become a running joke between us that I offer to escort him to his car now. He asked me what I could do to stop them, and I told him I warned the geese that I have a George Foreman grill, and would not hesitate to throw them on it. Needless to say, they don't bother me, but he still has issues sometimes (as he never lets me escort him).

I can neither confirm nor deny the presence of incriminating recordings.

A goose walks into a pub. It takes a look around then says to the bartender, "This sure is a swo pub."

The bartender reaches for the shotgun under the counter, shoots the goose and replies, "It is now".

How it was determined that there was, in fact, a shotgun behind the bad would be the subject of a heated, 26 page debate in the Tabletop Gaming Discussions section with many a meme included.

Geese are in cahoots with gremlins. More than once while living in NYC, there would be a news report or article about geese near JFK mucking up a jet engine by being sucked into it. Intentionally sabotaging aircraft by sacrificing themselves is straight up terrorist shit.

Hey, it's not like there isn't precedent--Runequest has had ducks for longer than you've been alive, and apparently, they are Not To Be Trifled With.

(I remember some very painful nips from a barnyard goose thirty years ago, and I got hissed at by a Canadian goose last summer. They've got teeth!)

I just had this mental image of demon geese men invading society. They look like normal people but have a savage goose head and neck that pops out of their human mouths like an alien tongue to fuck people up. I also wish I hadn't had this thought.

Dastardly geese are causing trouble at the Parma branch of the Cuyahoga County Library, as a local news story reveals.
My hero. Someone who tells it like it is and counters the pro goose propaganda. I sometimes think the put the Canadian tag on those bastards just as a marketing stunt so people would just assume they're nice. They aren't. If they ever evolve opposable thumbs you can bet they'll have more guns than a Texas gun show.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I finally have a reason to appreciate geese a bit. It turns out geese baby season is also a wonderful time to see bald eagles who feast on their new goslings. If there weren't goslings then they'd feed on the ducklings.

Iceland's collection of medieval laws is known at the Grágás (Gray Goose).

And Iceland has problems with volcanoes, including the eruptions of 2010 and 2014 that disrupted air travel.

Is there anything geese won't foul? If only they'd named the laws after, say, a bear...

It's not well known but iceland was actually closer to mainland europe until they formalized the name for their laws. Then one night it was towed further away. No one talks about it.

Ok but where are the Adventurers killing them?
goose-jpg.7145


The goose is a Schleich farm animal toy. The minis are Denizen and Star Wars minis painted by yours truly about 1993-1995. They're mostly painted with Humbrols over a primer made by thinning white paint. The silk effects on the right are done by dry brushing metallics over a dark-ish gloss base coat. The waxy finish is from being varnished with spray art fixative. I had a can of this lying about and it turned out to be much more resilient than the matt Humbrol varnish I tried originally.

The second from the left was kitbashed - the original had a helmet, but I replaced it with the head from another figure, held on with ordinary epoxy glue. I did quite a few modification jobs for various reasons, mainly to turn helmeted military figures into adventurers and to modify figures to female or make female figures a bit less cheesecakey as at the time female adventurer mini designs were quite thin on the ground.
