Canada Goose 

A man goes to his doctor because he’s been feeling very ill for days. The doctor gives him several sets of pills.

The doctor instructs; “Take the green pill with two big glasses of water when you get up. An hour later, take the white pill with another glass of water. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Mid afternoon, take the orange pill with plenty of water, and repeat that at dinner. Then, just before going to bed, take the red pill with several big glasses of water.”

The man is alarmed at huge volume of medicine he has been given to take, and nervously asks, “What’s the diagnosis? What’s wrong with me?”

The doctor says, “You’re dehydrated.”

Interesting Fact: The “giant” Canada Goose, Branta canadensis maxima, bred from central Manitoba to Kentucky but was nearly driven extinct in the early 1900s. Programs to reestablish the subspecies to its original range were in many places so successful that the geese have become a nuisance in many urban and suburban areas.  ( )


  1. The Canada Goose – sometimes referred to as pond starlings or Canada rats… though hunters think they are the roast beef of the skies.

  2. In Central Park they hired person to chase off the Canada geese, not very successfully. There are no other ducks now in the boating lake.

  6. Haha what a joke xD i know a few people who need to be tricked like that 😀

  7. My daughter lives in Markham north of Toronto. When I go visit I love to see how the geese adapted to their new environment. They fly through town, walk along the sidewalk and fertilize the public lawns. Mankind stole their land but they didn’t give up. They still breed although there are buildings and traffic that surround them.

    • This is very true. I really like the way you put this that we stole their land and they are definitely not giving up they just adopted to the new environment. Thank you very much for stopping by and opening my eyes to your way of thinking. Happy Blogging! 🙂
