MMy in laws were very excited about this swoose

The Dorset Swoose

The presumed parents with baby swoose

the swoose in 2006

I don’t normally quote the Daily Mail, in fact I despise pretty much everything I’ve ever heard reported in it, but I enjoyed this quote from 13th July 1920…

A bird prodigy of evil and hybrid character is the despair of a Norfolk farmer. It rejoices in the name of the “swoose”, a portmanteau word indicating its origin, for its father was a swan and its mother a goose. This ill-assorted pair had three children — three “sweese”.

Okay I love everything about this post, incredibly including the Daily Mail quote.
