OK, so... I'm thinking it's a play on the duck theme. But yeah, those damn Canada geese shit everywhere, and they can go to hell.
I've worked from time to time at a number of national labs. At one of the the workplace safety people spend a lot of time and effort trying to convince people not to approach the Canada geese during nesting season because turned ankles while fleeing a piss-off fowl have been the largest fraction of reportable injuries in some years.Apparently they lay the clutch most anywhere the urge takes them and then defend it with vigor. So for a couple of months each year there are barriers across and detours around some of the footpaths on site.On the up-side, the coyotes around site gang together to hunt the geese.

I post-docced for a couple of years on a North American campus. The ducks and geese were fine, the biggest issue was the year a skunk got under the steps of the 'graduate social unit' (bar on campus) and had babies, and everyone had to go into the bar through the kitchen for a few days until the skunk could be relocated...-Grumpy Academic--
Goose shit can stop sports events from happening:http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/newsid_7910000/newsid_7910300/7910366.stmSo maybe it's goose: 1sports: 0On reflection, I might be OK with that.
I don't need reflection to know I'm very OK with that!--Grumpy Academic--
