What does 大雁队形 mean?

I translated this as

I wonder what everydone thinks about Steve Jobs passing away? I wonder myself.

But 大雁 translate to big geese - is this an idiom?

大雁队形 (wild goose chase?)

Does it say "I don't know if everyone is on a wild goose chase (relating to Steve Jobs death) but .." ??

I don't know - it looks like English Chinglish to me (English written in Chinese) - where did you see this?

I don't understand this reply at all:


Some of these conversations in Google+, the Chinese is either too colloquial or idiomatic. Even my mom, who knows Mandarin, has problems.
