Goose Taped to Car Trunk on Road Home for Chinese New Year

From Sina Weibo:

@李维嘉: The owner of this car, when you’re driving at speed up to 100 km/h, have you considered how this goose would feel? When going home for Chinese New Year, have a safe journey!

In China, a goose in a box taped to a car's trunk.

Comments from Sina Weibo:


Goose: I’m about to fucking freeze to death. [生病][生病][生病]


Goose says: Finally flying.


Goose says: Fuck, all this wind buffeting me had made me a stupid cunt. [doge]


Hey hey hey! I’m just a goose, not Chang’e spacecraft! Are you trying to get to the moon driving this fast?!!!


I’ve liked you for so many years now. I started liking you from when you were in junior high. Do you still remember that little beautiful boy who went to your classroom everyday to watch you in class? I had planned to confess my love for you after graduating from college, but now you’ve become a big star, with millions adoring you, so you’d definitely never notice little old me. But, I still hope you can see this and reply to me. So, everyone, help upvote this up. I want him to see it. [悲伤] Weijia is so handsome and so funny.


Li Weijia is going further and further on the skit comedy path…


Poor goose, to be tied to the truck like this.


Black swan. If you think about it, this is rather cruel [to be transported like this and ultimately butchered for a meal].


How are chickens going to look at geese now? How are ducks going to look at geese now? How are geese supposed to hold up their heads in the fowl world now? [害羞]


It’ll get car sick … I’ve taken a goose on a car ride before. [思考][思考]

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.

      Actually I think Chinese and many Asians in general are some of the most half arsed resourceful people to be found. This looks stupid but it will probably work….well maybe work.
      …..For real Chinese new year shenanigans check the annual “Family of five on the one motorbike 500km roadtrip”.

      • Zappa Frank

        and the goose which role have in all this?…. if the same would happen in south USA we would talk about stupid rednecks and hillbillies….

    • MidniteOwl

      Well that was a stupid racist comment.

      • Just_Banlas

        If you don’t like stupid racist comments you should probably go to some other website. That’s all we serve here. Don’t let the door slam on your way out. Please.

          Please borrow directly from black culture. James Franco said it differently… and even the correctly stated version was a little corny.

        It would be, if it were about a race.

  • Just_Banlas

    Stupidity and Resourcefulness are not mutually exclusive….you can do something in a very resourceful manner and yet it can still be a stupid thing to do. Like responding to your post…..

  • Eric Hill

    it’s not genuine Chinese cuisine unless the main course has been mistreated in some fashion. This aint civilization, it’s China.

      Snap. You beat me to it.

  • ScottLoar

    I confess to seeing a pony in the back seat of a junker on one of the Chicago expressways many years ago, most likely being driven to a local rodeo, most likely Mexican. The goose is worthy of comment but trite by comparison.

    And for the host of PC aficionados looking for fault with that comment, Chicago has a huge Mexican population which hosts the festivals, holidays and activities like rodeos typical to Mexican cities.

  • JayJay

    This is akin to the Hangover 3 scene with the Giraffe?

  • Vance

    They really like their meat fresh, don’t they?

    • Dick Leigh

      It really does taste better. :)

      • Vance

        Yes it does.

  • Mighty曹

    He should tie a cat and pretend he’s driving a Jaguar.

    • Kai

      LoL, probably have to switch it from the trunk to the hood though.

      • Mighty曹

        Hahaha yah.

      • Guest

        Well I’m going to tape a hello kitty figurine in front.

  • Realist

    Unless the tape fails, this is not as cruel as it looks. If it was taped extremely well (tape wrapped around trunk lid), the goose should be secured. First, he might not be able to drive fast at all with Chinese New Year traffic. Second, even if he does hit 100km/hr, dogs like to stick their heads out the window at that speed and dogs can’t fly like geese. Geese can fly at over 100km/hr and climb to 20,000 feet, an altitude at which the temperature drops quite a bit. I’m just not sure how he feels about going that fast backwards LOL

    • ClausRasmussen

      Some geese go at 140 km/h: . That’s way more than the average sedan gets to in China during the New Year festival

    • Markus P

      Flying naturally is not the same as facing backwards on a road full of cars, trucks that transport animals would sometimes allow a small area of freedom of movement or at the very least would be facing left or right and have a wind breaker, it is a scary thing for an animal. Regardless of our opinions of cruelty level, one thing i think we can all agree on is that the driver could have found a better way to transport the animal.

  • biggj

    That’s a pretty good idea.

  • China Uncensored

    What hell it is to be an animal in China!

  • Guest

    Brilliant, by blocking the back windshield of their car completely with junk, they are preemptively contributing to their future defense for “didn’t realise I was dragging that pedestrian for miles and miles – couldn’t see!”

    • Dick Leigh

      It’s China, they don’t need to use their rear view mirror, turning signals, or seat belts. That’s what the horn is for.

  • Dick Leigh

    Looks like a picture from the “How to know if you’re a redneck: China edition” handbook.

  • Ralphrepo

    Animal rights? LOL… I’d settle for more a bit more attentiveness to human rights in China. As for the goose? He’s likely being processed through someone’s digestive tract right about now. But on the other hand, given the degree of wind resistance and the fact that the box is only stuck on with what looks like cheap packaging tape, the goose probably flown the coop after the tape job failed.

  • Ezrahhh

    totally heartless, this country is a chaotic cesspool, I’d go nuts if I had to live in China and rubbed shoulders with these deranged country bumpkins more than 2 months at a time.
