Punch,  61 (1871), 153.

Man and Goose. (Song by a Student of Social Science)





Sociology, Human Species

     Describes the noise and scampering of women motivated by some cause unknown to the author. Notes the noise of the 'dirty men and boys' who rush forward on the street, force the author to stand aside, and track 'each others' heels like geese'. Accordingly wonders whether geese are kindred species to man and thus thinks that Charles R Darwin may be right.
