Default Whats wrong with my duck?

> A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary

> After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and

> The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"

> "Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the
> vet..
> "How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean

> you haven't done any testing on him or anything.
> He might just be in a coma or something."

> The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the

> Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on

> in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his
> front paws on the examination table and sniffed the
> duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the

> The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out

> The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry,

> a dead duck."
> The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys

> and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..
> The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!"
> she cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"

> The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my
