Out of interest which region did the actual endearment term "duck" originate from? An yorkshire bred auntie used to use it...but whether it was from yorkshire or her time in Nottingham I don't know...But she then emigrated to Swansea....and she was well known for it there. :) So does anyone know?

Hi LilacMoss, it's a Stoke on Trent saying also Duck.

John.

"me-duck" is commonly heard around Oxford and Coventry. A couple of friends of mine, now departed, both canal boat people, used the term frequently when in conversation.

Something like 40 years ago I worked in Leicester and " 'ello me duck" was the morning greeting in the sandwich shop. And they sold "cobs" instead of the "rolls" this Essex boy asked for.:unsure:
That's right, Leics, Derbys and Notts only sell 'cobs' :D all with 'duck' liberally peppered in the conversation:LOL:

But anyway, Dux and friends were spotted in Bruges.....



Along with Lola......clever girl!

I think you may find things have changed slightly in the fair Ville you speak of. Now it will probably be......मैं सुअर का मांस के बिना तीन बेकन सैंडविच कृपया मिल सकता है? (Rough translation): "Can I have three bacon sandwiches but light on the pork, please". :)

For someone so far away you have an uncanny knowledge Tootles :):):)
@Tootles knows many mysterious things....... one of them is how that inflatable goat ended up with only three legs and why he was permanently banned from the petting zoo.

Don't worry, Toots... Your secret is safe with me. For a price ;)

Can we not go of on a tangent here we should be helping Dux with his porn addiction. Before we know it he will be buying dodgy DVDs such as:
One duck to much
50 caged birds
Confessions of a duck
Dux does Dallas.:rofl:
You forgot that famous bonkbuster film "50 shades of Teal" and you are wrong - I don't buy DVDs but download them from the mallard net........ DVDs are so 20th century. ;)
