What are geese?

On Friday I was listening in on a conversation about the miracle plane landing on the Hudson River in NY.

One lady was saying how the whole thing happened because of birds getting into the engine.

Another lady at my office says "Really, it was birds? So it wasn't geese?"

I'm curious what she thinks geese are.

geese are the birds that lay the golden egg, or in this can the crashed plane.

Personally, I have a strange affinity for geese. I can't stand them. My mom says it's because I was bitten by one when I was a small child.

I really do think that they are worthless animals, and I wasn't surprised to find out that they were the ones who caused the problems with the plane.

Think about it...They poop everywhere, eat everything, and always get in your way. If I had a nickel for every time a gaggle of geese decided to cross the road in front of my car...Walking as slow as possible, mind you.

Plus, they're MEAN! They hiss at you!

I'm not an animal hater really, I just don't like geese. Which by the way, geese are birds. I think that lady at your office is off her rocker.

Could she have been refering to Geese Howard? He is a crime boss so him deciding to bring down a plane is not too far fetched.
