Why a goose?

I'm often asked "why is your blog called Electric Goose?" I always respond by explaining that to reveal why my blog is called Electric Goose would be akin to Bruce Willis and that woman getting together in that TV programme that I never watched but was apparently quite good until Bruce Willis and that woman got together. When Bruce Willis and that woman did get together, no one bothered watching it any more. Bruce Willis and that woman had amazing chemistry and the whole programme was filled with sexual tension, but when they did get together, the tension wasn't there any more and there was no need to watch. So if I told you and anyone who asks why this blog is called Electric Goose, there'd be no need to read any more, not because the sexual tension would be lost, but because the whole reason for reading would disappear. Not that you are necessarily reading just to find out why this blog is called Electric Goose. Maybe you're reading it to see if Bruce Willis and that woman ever get together. If you are, you're probably in the wrong place.


Buy Thomas Bernhard novels

I still maintain it is a subtle nod to your love of learning about dangerous fungi, being, as it is, an anagram of ergotic ecoles.

Maybe it is because he loves this film from 1905:

Electric Goose

The same is true of Niles and Daphne in Frazier...

I like to think of your blog as a take on "Electric Blues", a song on the Hair soundtrack.

In a way, you're all right. The Electric Goose would be nothing without the invaluable contributions of you, the readers. It is what you make it.

I'm joking of course: you're wrong, all of you! So long, suckers!
