Goose

Goose, n. A bird that supplies quills for writing. These, by some occult process of nature, are penetrated and suffused with various degrees of the bird's intellectual energies and emotional character, so that when inked and drawn mechanically across paper by a person called an "author," there results a very fair and accurate transcript of the fowl's thought and feeling. The difference in Geese, as discocered by this ingenious method, is considerable: many are found to have only trivial and insignificant powers, but some are seem to be very great geese indeed.
