A couple were chatting about a few big ideas when this malaphor was exclaimed. This is a nice congruent conflation of “golden goose” and “sitting on a goldmine”, both referring to something very valuable. One usually sits on a gold mine while the goose sits on the golden egg. But if one does decide to sit on a golden goose, it certainly would make him a wise quacker (and rich to boot). Many thanks to Joel Friend for saying this one and then sending it in.
It might not be a golden goose, but my book “He Smokes Like a Fish and other Malaphors” will give you enough laughs to be a very valuable read. It’s available on Amazon and very cheap. Be a wise quacker and get one today!
