The way I used to deal with geese on a farm was to bring it back to them.  Slap them and hiss.  They would back off.  But if they are attacking it's most often because they have a nest nearby.

Funny, I was just discussing the grey duck phenomenon with my wife the other day.  She had never heard of it before, but I assured her that there were whole groups of people who live in closed off communities with no electricity or running water who grew up playing it.

puppypants: Wtf is duck duck goose?


It's kid's game, innit?

Originated in Sweden, brought to America.

Basic concept

A group of players sit in a circle, facing inward, while another player, the "picker" (a.k.a. the "fox"), (some young children call the "picker" the "ducker") walks around tapping or pointing to each player in turn, calling each a "duck"until finally picking one to be a "goose" The "goose" then rises and chases and tries to tag the "picker", while the "picker" tries to return to and sit where the "goose" had been sitting. If the picker succeeds, the "goose" is now the new picker and the process begins again. If the "goose" succeeds in tagging the picker, the "goose" may return to sit in the previous spot and the "picker" resumes the process.

FTA:  We've all played this game,

Not-so CSB/

I was sailing on Torch Lake, MI and was on my way to get dinner. Got to Clam River. A jet ski douchebag flies ahead of everyone getting into a neat, polite line to dock or get gas. Out of nowhere, a wild swan appears and violently smacks the guy off the jet ski. They fight (well, nit really fighting... the swan was absolutely kicking ass) for a few seconds in the water. The dude ends up with lacerations along with a broken nose and collar bone. It was beautiful. And terrifying.
