canada geese



that's a picture of the enemy right there. it may look innocent, but those damn things get on my nerves sometimes. they're everywhere at my work, and right now they're protecting their eggs. when you get close they turn into this:



it's like something out of a horror movie. there's one on a rampage in the parking lot right by my office. last week i was walking to my truck, minding my own business, when i looked to my left and there's a pissed of canada goose flying at my face about 5 feet away. it didn't get me, but i contemplated kicking it in the face after it landed. i restrained myself though, because i don't like to hurt animals, but this bird is pushing it.

the funniest part about it is that these things are dumb enough to attack a car. every day at least 1 or 2 will attack my truck. it cracks me up every time. it might make the whole ordeal worth it.

damn, those geese aren't messing around. the only thing they ever seem to do around here is eat grass and shit everywhere. i had one fly over me at a park one day and bomb a big ass green goose turd right on my shoulder. that'll kind of take the wind out of your sails, that's for sure.

Men that is some funny shit Gustov, but seriously don't attack them. When I was 7 years old I was attacked by a whole family of geese, my father had trouble getting me out of the pack. Those animals can be really nasty at times, but I guess thats the personality they have.

Ill tell you what... Thats a gorgeous animal! or at least it looks good in the picture.

whoa that's kinda scary. i'm not gonna attack them unless i have to to protect myself. i actually started parking on the other side of the parking lot to avoid this one. the goose: 1, gustov: 0

they are cool looking animals, especially for a honking, hissing, shitting machine

it's crazy, these little bastards were thought by some to be extinct in the 50's, and now they are so widespread that they have become pests.

and just to update on the bully here at work. the eggs hatched and there's a buch of little uns waddling around. mommy and daddy are as bitchy as ever
