Dude, what’s with Ducks?

Ducks are weird. You know the phrase ‘water off a duck’s back’? If you’ve ever seen the water run off a duck’s back, you know that it’s true.

And ducks are weird shapes. Their necks are all weird. They’re long. And when they’re on the water they bend back on a funny angle. And when they’re sleeping, they bend back on a REALLY funny angle.

But the TRULY strange thing about ducks is the difference in shape between them being on the water (like a retarded S shape, with a fat arse) to them in the sky (like a wannabe XWing fighter). Now, I could accept this if they at least made the KECH-KOOH-KEH-KO-KICH sound that Transformers make when they transform. But ducks don’t do that! They just launch from a weird shaped bird on the water to a really weird shaped bird in the air. They might say “quack”.

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
