complicated

Appropos of absolutely nothing at all, I had a random thought about quite common phrase. So I looked it up on Wikipedia and this is what I found:


The form without the hyphen is also commonly seen, but can be
construed as a "wild chase", but not an inevitably fruitless one, after a
possibly domesticated and flightless goose, rather than after a
wild
goose
.
Who'd have thought it was so complicated?

Lovers of 60s and 70s pop and rcok might like
this one. Even though youtube shows other songs, I think they were pretty much one-hit wonders with this one.
