    Re: Strange Memorial Service

    I'll gladly host the memorial if we can get my city to start killing off these things. They **** up my roof all day long. Makes cleaning my gutters a real **** job, pun intended. Two even set up shop in my kids' swing set area. My kids were scared to go into the back yard for about a month earlier this year. The worst are the traffic jams they cause though when they decide to cross the road.

    We have plenty of ducks and geese in my neighborhood. I just keep driving at the same speed. They move a lot quicker than people give them credit for - haven't hit one yet.

    Canadian geese are the Taliban of the bird family. Terrorists.

    Dumb. If they would have killed them in more traditional ways the meat could have been used by local soup kitchens, nursing homes, etc. I don't think any of the meat is probably going to pass muster if they used poison gas. 144 birds is a lot of wasted protein.

    Trying for a Chick-Fil-A spinoff? Goose-Fil-A?

    Yes, this an outrage! I can't stand for this discriminatory animal practice. It shouldn't matter if the geese were Canadian or American
