Why don`t ducks tell jokes when they fly?
Because they would quack up!

Interesting Fact: The Wood Duck nests in trees near water, sometimes directly over water, but other times over a mile away. After hatching, the ducklings jump down from the nest tree and make their way to water. The mother calls them to her, but does not help them in any way. The ducklings may jump from heights of over 50 feet without injury. ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Wood_Duck/lifehistory )
