This is a story I have told many times. It is a funny story about a duck, success and thinking fast. (with a moral to the story)
A Story About a Duck
A Duck is walking down the sidewalk and stops at the door of a tavern.
The Duck asks the bartender: "Do you have any duck food?"
The bartender replies: "Nope, there is no duck food here."
The Duck waddles off.
The Duck returns the next day and again asks: "Do you have any duck food?"
The bartender is losing his patience and replies: "NO DUCK FOOD!"
The third day, the Duck asks again: "Do you have any duck food today?"
The bartender throws down his towel and yells at the duck;
"No! And if you ask me again, I am going to take a hammer and nails and nail your beak shut and hit you on the head!"
The Duck waddles off..... a little sad and thinking hard.
On the 4th day the Duck pauses at the door.
The Duck carefully asks; "Do you have any hammer and nails?"
The bartender yells: "NO! I DON'T HAVE A HAMMER AND NAILS!!"
The Duck exclaims: "Oh, good ... have any duck food?"
*** Pause for laughter....Be like the Duck... keep going. Never give up. Keep asking.
