If this is true, then I've also just realized that the wood duck is not a duck. This whole meme is a little mallardocentric if you ask me.

Now I feel like I understand that poor dog from Duck Hunt. The pain, the anguish he must have felt at those ducks constantly mocking him.

In the States, they're just blue dog ducks. A political affiliation I was unaware of until this thread, but now that I know of them, sir, I do take offense something awful. I challenge all comers to a dance-off!*

*Strictly metaphorical, of course.

I beg to differ. That duck is obviously trying to disguise itself as a Blue Scottie/Bloodhound mix.

Ducks are cats wearing duck costumes with dog masks. This explains why ducks are such jerks.

I really wish I could have captured the dialog in my brain as I worked that out:

ducks in masks? *clicks link* no just regular ducks, so what's with the title? *looks at ducks* just ducks. *looks at images closely* just ducks. *looks at title* ... *sees image under title* ... *looks at ducks* no! *looks back and forth between duck and image, image and duck* ha!.. HA! *mind blown*

There should really be a term for that moment when you don't see something becoming the moment you do see something.

No, that would be income and educational inequality.

Also, this does not apply to mandarin ducks.
