* DangerTakesABackseat: In "The Goose Story", after she and Boyfriend manage to trap an aggressive goose, they throw it in the backseat of their car. It untangles itself from the blanket she used to net it. Allie compares it to the urban legend of a serial killer hiding in the backseat, and the goose's appearance in the mirror produces a wave of horrible fear connected to it.


Added DiffLines:

* FeatheredFiend: One story tells about Allie and Boyfriend having to deal with an aggressive goose that has invaded the house. They eventually manage to trap it and carry it to the pond outside town, where Allie imagines it lurks around, terrifying the other birds and waiting for its next victim.

''[[http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/ Hyperbole and a Half]]'' is a hybrid blog[=/=]JournalComic by Allie Brosh. The journal and its attendant comics detail the life--past and present--of its writer, in a surreal, sketchy style. The humor is random, the stories even more so, and the comics, sketchy as they are, somehow have a [[NarmCharm distinct appeal.]]
