Maybe from where you are sitting but from where I was sitting it was annoying.

Sorry for being incorrect - I was just regurgitating what they told me during employee orientation.

Fun fact: I worked at stores: #1, #2, #4, #7, #41, and #178. I'm old.

the Canada Goose was named after John Canada, the ornithologist and taxonomer who distinguished it from other species of geese.

Oh I don't think so. Yes it says that on a couple of sites but there is not one single write up on any "john Canada". The couple of sites that say it all refer back to one place. Typical internet where somebody made something up and others ran with it.

It was actually named back in 1758 by some Swedish dude.

https://www.grammarphobia.com/blog/2...ada-goose.html

"The silliest one is that John Canadaódescribed variously as an ornithologist, a taxonomist, or a taxidermistónamed the bird for himself. We havenít found a shred of evidence to confirm this or that such a person even existed."
