[Desk duck](http://www.nicecupofteaandasitdown.com/duck/) itself is mildly amusing but the faq is funny beyond belief: Should we fear ducks? Apart from the possibility of a firm pecking, no you are fairly safe as far as ducks go, its geese you have to watch out for. Mind you I have often thought that with their ability to swim underwater as well as on the surface, and to walk and fly ducks could make the ultimate combat soldier.

I sent a letter to the BBC cult department: On the [Hitchhikers Guide](http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/hitchhikers/quiz/index.shtml) "Guide Quiz", question 5 ("Why might you not recognise a Hagguenenon twice?"), the answer should be "evolve" rather than "mutate". I feel this is quite important, as Hagguenenons are hyper-evolutionary beings, not just genetically unstable :) And within exactly 20 minutes i got this nice reply: You are, of course, right. You are so right, I think I'll go and wash my head in that bucket of water over there. If only all media organisations were so fast and friendly. And yes, i'm a walking Douglas Adams dictionary.
