Dancing Duck

A man walks into a bar with a duck and a biscuit tin. He sets the duck on top of the biscuit tin on the bar and the duck begins dancing. 

The barman finds this rather interesting as do the rest of the punters in the pub. They all come round the duck and watch it for ages, and while doing so, buy more and more drink. By the end of the night the bar is full of people watching this amazing duck, still dancing and giving the odd quack now and again.  

The barman realizes that he hasn't had business this good in a long time. It is so good that he offers to buy the duck from the man to which the man agrees to sell for $500. The barman thinks it is a bit expensive but agrees to buy it anyhow. On selling the duck, the man goes home leaving a crowded pub watching his dancing duck.  

Later that night, the man gets a telephone call. It is the barman and he exclaims that the duck is a great success and that he has his money back in the amount of drink he has sold, but he says, “There is one thing. How do you get the duck to stop dancing?”  

The man replies, “Oooh simple! Just take the lid off the biscuit box and blow out the candle.”

Quote Of The Day: Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “When the day of Friday arrives there are angels upon the door of every mosque to record those who arrive in order and when the Imam sits to deliver the sermon they close their scrolls and come to listen to the remembrance. The example of one who arrives earliest is like one who offers a fine camel, then the next is like one who offers a cow, then the next is like one who offers a ram, then the next is like one who offers a chicken, then the next is like one who offers an egg.”  Source: Sahih Bukhari 887/3039, Sahih Muslim 850  Grade: Mutaffaqun Alayhi (authenticity agreed upon) according to Al-Bukhari and Imam Muslim
