The proposed extermination of nearly 170,000 geese in the state of New York set twitter immediately aflutter:
and New York is going to "eliminate" 170,000 Canada Geese. I hope they use snipers like The Galapagos used to eliminate their feral goats.
@Drudge_Report amazing no mention of hunting or using any of those 170,000 geese to feed hungry people...no one think of that?
Assonance is (nearly) always funny:
Could you have a goose loose aboot your hoose? Save the geese from the slaughterhouse - http://bit.ly/9ogI1d
We may be talking about a different breed:
I got 2 bottles of Goose. That's Geese.
Does anyone else think a geese genocide is a bit absurd? http://tiny.cc/4ptqc
Assorted, perhaps unrelated, complaints:
I think somebody on my street hit one of them damn geese! Feathers everywhere!
Durn geese, waddlin' and honkin' all over like they own this town.
What is this? The Birds?
I get worried when a huge pack of geese crosses the street. Especially when there is 1 goose leading and the rest are his entourage.
And finally, the logical connection:
Canada Geese...terrorists? http://nyti.ms/c05d5N
