What the in duck?

What the in duck? With Episode II coming soon, I'd decided to peruse all sorts of different places in search of as much information as I could and found this online, has anyone else seen it as well? Anyway, it's good to see that folks that work for Lucas have a sense of humor.

What about "Howard the Duck?" Why doesn't Lucas mention that? Or has that been expunged from his resume?

Lucas has recently joked about wanting to remake Howard the Duck, actually.

I think this is part of lucas' public penance for the last film ... to try to convince people he won't make another movie quite so cringe-inducing. baaaad dialogue. and if that trailer is any indication, only more to come.

Like the Mynock "chewin' on the power cables" I've always shuddered at the fauna of Lucas' galaxy far, far away.

An enigmatic waterfowl from worlds scattered across the galaxy

How in living tarnation are these ducks equipped to live throughout the scattered worlds? Which planet did they evolve on? Perhaps they've been physically introduced to neighboring worlds. What kinds of physiological variances have occured after introduction to scattered worlds, each with their own gravitational field, atmosphere, distance from local star, (if moon) at the mercy of host planet's tides (vice versa) etcetera. . .

He got too close to explaining such questions with the Midichlorians in episode I. He needs to steer clear and just stick with the fantasy. i.e. the story.
