Residents in the small Dorset village of Puddletown were shocked today at the news that a local man had said ‘boo’ to a goose. Paul Barton, 43, has been described by neighbours as ‘a quiet man who keeps himself to himself’ and this is said to be totally out of character.
The incident happened early last evening, after Paul had been drinking in the local pub, and witnesses are convinced that alcohol is to blame for the extraordinary event.
‘I couldn’t believe it when I heard. He always seemed like such a nice, quiet man, the sort of person who wouldn’t say boo to a goose.’ said a shocked resident, ‘But then he said boo to a goose. It must have been the drink, he never would have done anything like this sober. He came out of the pub, walked right up to the goose, bold as brass and said ‘boo’. Just before he fucked it up the arse.’
