goose iron
 n.— «Apart from any other consideration, it’s is a psychologically healthy exercise for Bahamian people to recognize the way we once lived. At a time, for example, when we did not have things like electric steam irons and instead had to use what is called a “goose iron” and, to generate heat, live coals had to be inserted into the body of the goose iron.» —“Nettie offers something” by Kermit B. Fernander Nassau Guardian (Bahamas) Sept. 18, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
