    I was surfing around the web...just expanding my knowledge and I came across this quote that Qwacked me up!!!!


    "[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Male ducks provide no parental care, and female ducks do not have to feed their young, just lead them around. (Which is why male ducks can get away with not helping.) This situation can lead to careless sex and consequently hybridization. Although hybrid ducks are not that common overall, they do occur on a regular basis. "[/FONT]

    [​IMG] We need an education campaign to stop all of those randy young drakes out there practicing careless sex...." [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I think we can blame their fathers, and grandfather etc. for not teaching this generation self control. It's shameful.

    Do you think the ducks might be spreading the word to people in our society? We need to use some "duck tape" on those quackers if that's what they're doing!
