Funny Animals - Geese on Grass Near Tables Outside


The term "goose" may refer to either a male or female bird, but when paired with "gander", refers specifically to a female one (the latter referring to a male). Young birds before fledging are called goslings.

Interesting Fascinating Well-Known Sayings about Geese include:

To "have a gander" is to examine something in detail.

"What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander" or "What's good for the goose is good for the gander" means that what is an appropriate treatment for one person is equally appropriate for someone else.

Saying that someone's "goose is cooked" means that they have suffered, or are about to suffer, a terrible setback or misfortune.

The common phrase "silly goose" is used when referring to someone who is acting particularly silly.

"Killing the goose that lays the golden eggs", derived from an old fable, is a saying referring to any greed-motivated, unprofitable action that destroys or otherwise renders useless a favourable situation.

"A wild goose chase" is a useless, futile waste of time and effort.

There is a legendary old woman called Mother Goose who wrote nursery rhymes for children.

A raised, rounded area of swelling (typically a hematoma) caused by an impact injury is sometimes metaphorically called a "goose egg", especially if it occurs on the head.
