An aerospace engineer told his boss he was taking a 3 day trip to study the "survival probabilities of feathered airfoils in hostile environments". The boss was impressed until he found out the engineer had gone duck hunting.

I have stolen this to great success. Thanks! Also the "severe nonlinear waterfowl issue." I am amused by the English Language and the world of advertising. "Great Beer, Great Responsibility" is intoned for most beers. I can hear the Buckhorn beer version: "Cheap beer, No responsibility". And most buildings are non-smoking. You can tell the smoking ones - the firefighters are on the scene.

I don't for a second believe that this is true but this story makes the rounds: In a software design meeting, we were using typical technical jargon to discuss a data exchange interface with a vendor. One co-worker said the programming we had ordered was delayed because the vendor was suffering from a "severe nonlinear waterfowl issue." Curious, the team leader raised his eyebrows and asked, "What exactly is that?" The programmer replied, "They don't have their ducks in a row."

I know, I know, this is a bit of a groaner -- I actually have a really good duck joke, and I might be prepared to share it, but only if we get some other folks to share in kind. So let's make this the "Week of the Duck" ... bring out your duck-related jokes, polish them off, and share them with the rest of us!
