A Very Naughty Goose Somehow Smashed Its Way Into The Back Of A Taxi In The UK

Goose break-in taxi.

Like many people at the moment, I am having my opinion of geese strongly coloured by Melbourne games studio House House’s Untitled Goose Game. The game, if you are not familiar, allows you to control a horrible goose, who terrorises a village in order to pursue a list of arbitrary goals. Obviously, I do not expect this goose to be representative of the entire goose community — largely because it is a fictional goose from a video game — but it has certainly made me more wary of the goose’s iconic honk, a noise I had not previously believed to be sinister.

As you can imagine, this is not an ideal time for me to come across a report of a renegade goose launching itself through the window of a cab in the UK — exactly like the untitled goose in Untitled Goose Game would do. Nevertheless, according to Nottinghamshire Police, this is entirely real:

Police said that both the taxi and the goose needed to be checked out following the incident, but did not shed any more light on how the fuck this happened.

In what is almost certainly not a coincidence, the taxi goosening occurred only two days ahead of the upcoming Goose Fair that is held annually in Nottinghamshire, which might just be the most British shit I have ever heard of in my whole damn life.
