I think TitleTown is just trying to lull us into a false sense of security so that he can get the last laugh the next time he takes one of us duck hunting.
Once as a child, my sisters and I were throwing rocks at a lake that had a bunch of ducks in it. We were throwing them past them in an attempt to coax them closer to the shore so we could pet the ducks. I believe my 7 year old arm failed me, and I threw a nonliteral duck, which then hit a baby duck, killing the little bugger and sending it belly up. We all freaked out and started running while my older sister took her shoes off and tried going into the lake to save it. She was unsuccessful... Knowlingly I was guilty of murder, I cunningly blamed my little sister for it, thus scarring her for life.
I should probably adopt a baby duck now to atone for my sins...
I had a friend who would always mess with the ducks when he came over. My dad would always tell him to stop messing with the ducks, but he would always do it. One time he did so when the females had eggs . . . OMFG it was one of the funniest things I have ever seen to this day . . .
The male duck jumped/flapped (domesticated ducks can't really fly) up in the air, squakin' like crazy. It landed directly on his head, got its feet kind of knotted up in his hair, and continued with the sqaukin' and flapping while pecking his head like mad. He was crying, freaking out trying to swat the duck off his head . . .
It was like watching someone who is being swarmed by some bees. You know that crazy looking, frantic, run away while swatting wildly at your own head thing? Yeah, like that, only with a 12 pound duck in attack mode . . .
Funny, funny stuff. No broken arms or even significant damage from all the pecking. He never did **** with the ducks again, though.
