This is the Story of the Ducks'
Ducks are to be banned from a village pond. The mallards have been branded a menace by officials because they are eating the frogspawn. The community council in Creigiau, near
Cardiff, has ordered the birds to be relocated to another pond.
According to the Daily Express council secretary Alec Davies said, 'There are almost no frogs, newts and stickleback in the pond this year. The
ducks are destroying the habitat and we have made a decision to relocate them.'
Villagers are furious with the council's
plans. Local Andrew Wigley-Jones said, 'My 3 year old daughter loves going to see the
ducks. They are part of the character of the village and bring the community together.'
A RSPB spokesman said, 'There are lots of other reasons why frogspawn has been delayed this year, including the fact
that it has been particularly cold. The main problem with ducks is that if you relocate them there is nothing to stop them from flying back.'
Five doctors went duck hunting one day. Included in the group were a general
practitioner, a paediatrician, a psychiatrist, a surgeon and a pathologist.
After a time, a bird came winging overhead. The first to react was the general
practitioner who raised his shotgun, but then hesitated. 'I'm not quite sure
it's a duck,' he said, 'I think that I will have to get a second opinion.' Of
course, by that time, the bird was long gone.
Another bird appeared in the sky soon after. This time, the paediatrician drew a
bead on it. He too, however, was unsure if it was really a duck in his sights
and besides, it might have babies. 'I'll have to do some more investigations,'
he muttered, as the creature made good its escape.
Next to spy a bird flying was the sharp-eyed psychiatrist. Shotgun shouldered,
he was more certain of his intended prey's identity. 'Now, I know it's a duck,
but does it know it's a duck?'The fortunate bird disappeared while the fellow
wrestled with this dilemma.
Finally, a fourth fowl sped past and this time the surgeon's weapon
pointed skywards and he fired without hesitation. 'BOOM.' The surgeon lowered
his smoking gun and turned nonchalantly to the pathologist beside him, 'Go see
if that was a duck, will you?'
Question: What do you call a duck that just doesn't fit in?
