The Official “I Don’t Give A Duck!” Thread

#1
Not in Beijing, Anaheim or Orlando, I just don’t give a duck! You’ll have to pay me to get a mallard or a canvasback because I’m a professional!

If you give a duck, go ahead and tell us what makes you so generous to donate your gift. Tell us what motivates you to give a duck and become so magnanimous. If you want me to give a duck but you’ll have to name a prize for my contributions.

Disgust or discuss.

I didn't get out once this season for duck hunting, but still have a few in the freezer.

I like them very simple with a garlic and soy sauce marinade, then grilled medium rare.

Good stuff.

Had to duck once on a tennis court when a flock of ducks flew over the court and literally bombarded the court like machine gun with their bright green "pellets". We played a let - on a different court.

Duck soup, I prefer consommé!
Disgust. Obviously.

I have a suspicion the OP is harbouring an irrational fear/hate of ducks and is using this thread as a platform to direct these built up feelings as a coping mechanism. OP, this is not the way. The first step is acknowledging your fear, then we can work on overcoming it.

What we see here is affecting millions of Americans everyday, and it's time we spread some awareness of this issue. Read below:

"What might be laughing matter to people, is not so to a phobic. Anatidaephobia is one such phobia. A person suffering from this condition feels that somewhere in the world, a duck or a goose is watching him/her (not attacking or touching, simply watching the individual).

The word Anatidaephobia is derived from Greek word ‘Anatidae’ which means ducks, geese or other water fowls, and phobos is Greek for dread/fear.

The fear of ducks phobia can be a debilitating anxiety condition, wherein, no matter what one is doing or where s/he is in the world, they feel the constant presence of a duck or goose.

Causes of Anatidaephobia
Anatidaephobia or the fear of ducks might have sprung due to a negative or traumatic incident related to ducks or geese. Such birds are known to have violent tendencies and are often known to attack people without any provocation. Often, they swoop down to steal food or simply take a nip.

A child might have directly or indirectly experienced such an episode. S/he might have experienced the flapping sound made by the bird’s large wings. This then causes it to feel vulnerable or fearful around ducks. Most cases of childhood phobias get resolved over time. However, in few cases, they persist into adulthood.

Symptoms of fear of ducks phobia
While normal people might smile or laugh at the thought of being scared by a duck, to an Anatidaephobic, this fear is persistent and weighs constantly on the mind. Sometimes, the phobia is so extreme that it might even affect one’s day to day life. S/he might refuse to leave the home on account of encountering a duck.
Physical symptoms of fear of ducks phobia include:
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Dry mouth, difficulty swallowing or feeling like choking
  • Paralyzing fear that causes the phobic to stay rooted or frozen.
  • Alternatively, one tries to scream, or flee.
  • Some phobics fear they will lose control totally: fainting, dizziness, crying or embarrassing oneself etc
  • Chest pains, gastrointestinal distress are other signs of this phobia
  • Making threads on TTW about "not giving a duck"
Thoughts of death, dying, feeling like being trapped are other psychological symptoms of this phobia.
Thus, the fear of ducks phobia can take over one’s life completely as one refuses to leave their home on account of encountering a duck. They may go to great lengths to avoid traveling to areas that are known to have geese or ducks."

TL/DR bcoz I really don’t fit your profile of me. I love ducking around; I used to have my own ducktail that followed me everywhere; Donald “Duck” Dunn was one of my favorite bass players; I much prefer Donald Duck than Mickey Mouse but my favorite Disney critter is Pluto; I didn’t throw a hissy fit when the Oregon Ducks beat my FSU Seminoles in the CFB playoffs; I feel bad the Anaheim Ducks are really bad this year in the NHL.

I really do like ducks but I won’t give a duck because I’m a professional...you’ll have to pay me to give a duck.
