goose father
 n.— «Lots of fathers are lonely. Prof. “J” is lonely too. His wife left Korea for the U.S. with their children to give them a chance to study English. They have a 9-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl. He sends money once a month to them. In Korean, we call him a “goose father” since a goose moves from place to find food for its young.» —“Beware If McDonald’s Is Just Like Home” by Lee Ji Hae OhmyNews (S. Korea) Jan. 18, 2005.
