    We were enjoying our breakfast this morning and watching the news when all of the sudden there's this insane noise on the roof and the satellite goes off.
    I run outside to see what's going on and there's my dish on the ground, with a goose going nuts and attacking it!

    What the Hell?!

    Is this covered by my protection plan?
    Can I legally shoot this crazy bird? It won't leave the dish and it tries to attack me when I get near it!

    I like how the goose removed the nuts & bolts.

    I'm begining to think you not all that satisfied with your new DISH install. Your still spending a lot of time with your anti DirecTV rhetoric. Kind of reminds me of a divorced woman I know. Want's nothing to do with her ex but is always talking about him. :sure:

    I think they're protected. That wouldn't stop me from killing it if that filthy thing attacked me.

    They must be protected, we can't get rid of the damn things here. They've ruined our beautiful parks. They've polluted our ponds. All we seem to be able to do is run them off with dogs. I just read that one of the towns is gonna gas them, so there must be a way around that protection.

    I've never seen a goose crash into a dish, but that's probably what happened. One crashed into our library's glass roof addition that is raised about ten feet above the roof and is used to help light the library. Hit that tempered glass and shattered the whole large pane. Some of those things are huge.

    Are you sure it's not a directv employed goose doing a re-install? That's about how the installer left ours when we upgraded to HD...

    It might be believable if you hadn't posted about your switch to Dish a few times.

    It had actually looked like it had fallen off the roof.

    April Fool's joke. It took like 1 minute in Photoshop.

    Sorry about your marriage. Congratulations to your ex-wife. :lol:

    It takes a man to admit his mistakes and I have corrected my typo.
