Saying “Some people juggle geese” is a way of acknowledging that life is wonderful and strange.

The phrase comes from Joss Whedon’s defunct sci-fi western TV show Firefly. The line is spoken by the character Wash in the episode “Our Mrs. Reynolds.”

Here’s the situation: Wash has remarked to his wife Zoe that people on other planets have strange customs: in one place he visited, they juggle baby geese for fun. Later in the episode, a woman steals a shuttle from the space ship he pilots. Zoe wonders why the thief would steal the shuttle rather than the whole ship. Wash says, “Maybe she likes shuttles.” Zoe gives Wash an exasperated look. Then he says, in his defense, “Some people juggle geese!”
