Funniest thing that's
ever happened on the job:    

A friend of mine unknowingly got too close to a mother goose protecting her nest. The goose flew up out of the tall grass where the nest was hidden and just sat on his shoulder while trying to bite his ear off. He started running and she was right there with him flapping her wings and flying about a foot off his back. I think the only thing that saved his ear was the fact that he tripped while trying to get away and took a tumble along the pond edge. Once he hit the ground and started rolling the goose went back to her nest. He got out of there in a hurry. I think that may have been the funniest thing I have ever witnessed.
