I have a watch Goose on my building. Checks out everyone who enters or leaves.

Hopefully all it does is watch. It looks like it is in a perfect position to do something else to people entering or leaving.

We have potty trained parrots that poop on command, but I'm not sure how to train a goose.

My boys would bring a duckling/duck into the house from time to time... just because... and we were never able to train them to poop on command....I used to tell them if they brought it in, they had to clean up the inevitable splat it would make... I did had a solo little half grown for awhile that stayed indoors during really cold days, and I had to pin a diaper onto it....this was before I learned how to pin it... I tried taping a paper towel, but it didn't work for very long....

Training not necessary. Go to the roof. Blame the duck.

I find it amusing how I start talking about nature and the conversation winds it way around to ducks wearing diapers.

You just can't explain or predict where the mutant mindset might lead us, by the journey sure is fun.

You were verbous? Gregarious? Wow, we would never expected that from you, Steve! What ever happened to the shy, introverted, quiet Steve? ;-)

Glad it was grand, bro. Any kind of "C" at all is truly joyous.
