I was thinking about all the "Special" made-up words we use here on BYC about our ducks, and I thought Maybe we should put together some sort of a list or dictionary. lol. If you can think of any words we use here and what they mean, add them in a reply and I'll add them up here. I've added a couple to get us started (Ones i've seen or made up myself), but you guys can help me alter the meaning if it's not quite right...
