Ah tradition.

You know, in my mothers home town there’s a tradition of stringing up a dead goose by its feet. People will then get on a horse, ride under it, and try to rip the goose’s head off as they pass the goose.

The person who manages to pull off the head will be goose king for the day.

It’s a huge party.

Isn’t tradition wonderful?

Edit: I wouldn’t blame people for thinking I made this up. It’s a thing, in certain parts of the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. This is not my mother’s home town, but the first video I could find. It will do since it’s very similar.
