Boris Makes a Big Mistake!
As Director of Security here at Mole Hill at Bittersweet Acres, our
Pilgrim gander Boris considers it his responsibility to provide
security clearance for all tools and equipment. Bucket, shovel, rake,
or even ladder Boris rushes over, gives the item a nip, and honks
his approval. We are then free to continue with our work. As we have
had no serious security breaches since Boris assumed this position, it
is clear the system works well.
One time, however, Boris made a big mistake.
Some people call us crazy, but we like to keep our bird pens as clean
as possible. We use large barbecue tongs to pick up poop, and we do it
at least three times a day. One night, after cleaning the chicken pen,
I went into the goose pen to do a final cleanup. Before I could do
anything about it, Boris decided to do a security check on the tongs.
He took hold of the business end of the tongs ...
If a goose can make a face, Boris sure did. It was a combination of
"BLEH ... YUCK ...UGH!" He rushed over to the water bucket and
dunked repeatedly, shaking his head and rinsing his mouth out over and
Needless to say, tongs have been given a blanket security pre-check
since that time!
