I shall go into battle with...

A legion of black ducks with white bills.



The results are probably not going to be all that they're quacked up to be.

Mr Smashy... that looks like a cover of Coots, not ducks.

I feel a Clavinesque moment coming on...

The American Coot is often confused with ducks but are in fact a member of the rail family (Rallidae) and unlike ducks do not have webbed feet. They are also called "mud hens" ion some locales..

If this is true you may have to revise your battle strategy.

Bufflehead is a duck! Find a legion of buffleheads!




Would a squad be enough?

This White Goose of Good may look shy, but she packs a *** under that wing.

She'll help you out.

The geese at the zoo used to eat stones when I saw little. If you had it in your hand they'd eat em.

Okay... now you are just messing with me.

I would have to be way more stoned to make sense out of that.

You know the little pellet things that they eat. Well you could put pebbles in your hand like it was their little pellet food, and they'd eat em. I mean come on who eats rocks? Seriously.
