ok so i was somewhat forced to drive my brother to the airport in chicago yesterday. along the way we had an... event.

there we are just driving along I55 when we noticed some low flying geese. unfortunatly the main part of us noticing these geese from hell was while we were hitting a rather suicidal seeming goose. the goose bounced off the grill, and rolled up the hood of the car to my windsheild leaving a initial spray of goose blood, followed by a trail of more blood and little goose feathers in my windsheild wipers. when i got out to investigat i found a rather destroyed looking grill, and several goose feathers decorating the fan.

i have never heard of anyone hitting a full sized goose befor....


all in all... i hate geese.

They taste quite nice though, but they're a bit fatty.

I'm assuming from the light-hearted tone that everyone's okay? I guess your insurance will cover the repairs?

everyone is fine. it was jsut crazy... and dramatic. we continued to drive for about 20 minits just staring at the windsheild in horror befor we finnaly pulled over to the side.

we hae full coverage on the car, so the goose incident should be covered.

I ate a goose sized bag of candyfloss (cotton candy) on Saturday night. I believe that has enough relevence to the thread without having to be spam.

We once hit a bird with my dad's truck. Not as dramatic as your goose incident, but it still counts because it's a feathery thing with wings. The last thing you'd think would get hit by a car. I think ours was a seagull.

There's a question. What are seagulls doing in my lovely (or not) landlocked Wisconsin town?

And on the icky geese front, I agree. I've been traumatized ever since one chased poor little me when I was still in diapers. We both had to waddle and apparently it was all very funny to my parents, nevermind that their child is being attacked by a hellspawned bird.

on a side note, i also hit a seagull today while i was pulling out of subay (the place in which i have sold my soul to in exchange of regular payments of 6.50 a hour) it might have already been dead, all i know was it was behind my tire.

i second the question of why there are seagulls in land locked areas.

My dad tells this story, I dont remember it, I was about 4 or 5 and i was at a farm that belonged to my dads friend, the geese were out and one charged me, my dad came running over but i had wandered a bit and he was too far away to get to me in time. Aparently i stood my ground and as it reared i leaped forward and...... hugged it. We both tumbled to the floor and the goose ran away when we were disentangled. Dad seems to think that when it spread its wings during the rearing i thought that it was trying to hug me. go figure. The only moral that I can gleen from this is that geese hate love.

All birds are evil. Once when my cousin was in cup scouts 3 years ago, they did this famimly camping trip thingy where everyone drives to Georgia, and we stay in this survival camp for 3 weeks...Me and a group of kids saw some ducks, or geese, or whatever they were and decided, "hey, let's go poke them with a stick and see what happens!" (probably not the smartest thing to do), and this one rather fat one started biting and charging at every one. Most of us had long jeans on (gee, what a smart thing to wear during the summer! Thanks mom!) and when we got bit, it peeled off some skin underneath. Only one kid got hurt, and that was because he decided to pick one up and try to throw it....Overall, it was pretty funny. tongue.gif

I think that I'll just add in my own story about geese (and revenge on geese) here...although it's not really mine.

My great-gradmother lived out in the deep, deep country and was the youngest of all of her siblings. (I'm pretty sure that there was around 8 or more of them) She, for some odd reason, decided that a goose would make a good pet, and she had one for the longest time. One day when her grandmother was walking outside, the goose walked up behind her and bit her on the back of the leg. (the lady was like, eighty or something-which proves that geese are evil, evil things that do not care for the elderly) It suprised her and she whapped it upside the head, killing it, without even realising that she had just killed her granddaughters pet.


They had roasted goose for supper that night...

Seemed like a better idea then socking money into our army at the time...

A strange factoid about me is that I've been bitten 15 times by geese. 14 Canadian (once by some crazy unknown geese variety at the zoo, I think I may have mention somewhere on here the crazy mother huberd goose who attacked me while I was feeding a swan). Granted 4 of those times was at the royal mint when I was like 9. Why my father ever thought that would be a fun family outing, I will never know.
