My neighbor has a goose statue on his porch to dress in different outfits that relate to the current season.  This is a sort of common house ornament, but his collection of goose clothes is special in two ways.  The first is that he is about the last guy on earth that you would imagine with a collection of goose clothes, and the second is that they are all handmade (crocheted) by his mother.  He’s very protective of his goose and does not tolerate any goose-related ridicule from the neighbors.  The goose also has a name, which I’ll withhold here for his (and the goose’s) internet-anonymity.
