Goofus is a Fearsome Critter reported by the American lumberjacks of the 19th and 20th centuries. This bird from Minnesota and Wisconsin.
I don't know, some lumber jacks say it was made in a bet between god and satan.
It flys backward because it whats to see where it's been, not where it's going. Yeah, it's THAT stupid. IT also makes it's nest UPSIDE DOWN AND THE EGGS DON'T FALL OUT. THERE SO STUPID THAT THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO DIE. They could be a pile of bone, but till get up and lay eggs.
Havn't eaten one my self, but gave some to a lumberjack, and he said it tasted yellow. The meat made him stupid. So stupid that he slept in his hammock upside down. So stupid that he doesn't know how thing work.
