Default Duck, duck, goose!

Oh, my. I'd hate to see what you consider obnoxious. ; -) Grazing
geese defecate a lot, frequently, and it's mushy and it smells and it
stains. (They've got a caecum full of bacteria which help them digest
grass; this makes them function like little web-footed cows!) I once
had the nasty job of hand-weeding a daylily bed in which a gaggle of
Canada geese had been lounging. Ugh! If geese become tame enough to
come up on the porch and say howdy, you will be hosing off the porch
on a daily basis. I like geese, but I don't like cleaning up after
them. Maybe your ick threshold is higher than mine.

Quite possible; I tend to compare anything's doo to kitty or dog, which are
much more obnoxious IMO. And I have dogs, so it's a firsthand comparison
;-).
