Watch 10,000 snail-eating ducks 'clean' a rice paddy

(Thanks to Dave N., who says "They opened the tour for the Yardbirds, I think.")

Looks like herding ducks is a lot like herding cats.


Duck season!
Wabbit season!
Snail season!

To continue MOTW's theme:

"Duck season! FIRE!!!" [Blam].

And apparently, we'll never get to see that again, as Warners recently announced they won't show some of the violence in the old cartoons any more. And Elmer Fudd won't be armed any more.

Unfortunately, the ducks died. The owner wanted to be able to identify them, but there was tragic misunderstanding between the words ‘Banding’ and ‘Branding.

Another theory of the ducks demise is because the snails they snarfed were venomous cone snails. In the name of humanity, don't order Peking duck at a restaurant for a while.


Knick knack paddy snack.
