Does otseng weigh the same as a duck?

How long's that contact button been there neath our names?

I noticed it just now, and I'd comment about being a curious me, but I'll have to hold of on that til I find out how long it's been there.

But anyway, if ya click it, it'll carry that post into a private message, and I'm here to tell it, that's the surest sign of magic there ever was. I mean, it won't make a mule dance the merengue, but it's magic all the same.

I used to'd copy and paste the proper link, then copy and paste the conversation, fussing who saids to what's said, then tell what I had to tell.

And here it is, one button to rule em all!

Someone please lie to me and say it just got put in today :wave:

otseng, if ya read this, and using this handy dandy contact feature, please let me know if ya weigh the same as a duck.
Some say it came from Memphis down in Tennessee
Or it drifted in from Georgia about 1953
Just as long as it's greasy, as long as it's fast
As long as it's pumpin' honey, it's gonna last

It's the hillbilly rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin' from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly rock

I don't do puns without another joke as the meat; puns are more of a finishing sauce.

As an example, someone on another forum posted Trumpgret in the Word of the Day thread, with the following definition:

Regret or remorse for having voted for Donald Trump.

So I said:

"Oh dear. I've been using this word wrong..."

And I posted this.

This is a good example of a fowl joke that nonetheless doesn't have that unpleasant fishy aftertaste.
I'm lost as a duck at a disco.

Ya know, in humble, I was always ready to say I'm me the dumbest one here among us.

Now I'm fret to think it fact.

I'm just glad this wasn't posted in the Science sub forum. I'm sure our dear leader is a looker, but picture evidence of a naked otseng on a scale next to a duck on a scale is not the image I want to have to un-see :D

Now to the OP question. Are we talking a metric standard otseng or one of those imperial otsengs? You know, the ones with the storm trooper helmets and all. What kind of duck? The noun or the verb?

Jethro, my oldest dog, a black lab, doesn't get upset at nothing no more.

I laughed so loud he started barking for 911. How'm I gonna explain it when they show up?

I'm just glad pretty thing's here to let em know I wasn't hallucinating again.


We note otseng's had several opportunities now to put this question to rest. Yet he neither confirms, nor denies, his duck weighing probabilities. Now I ain't here to witch shame, or to warlock shame, nor none of that. I merely note otseng's reticence to confirm or deny.

To answer the inquisition,
if otseng got him a position,
on whether he and his duck does equally weigh,
he tests his luck with a vote of "nay".

Hold on now, what shall we say,
when dear leader answers with "nay"?
What on earth, the members query,
does a nice horse weigh?

That's exactly what I'd expect a warlock to say!

The beast that's half fish and half duck,
(Poor thing, what a sad bit of luck!)
Is named for the cry,
When the fish swims up nigh,
And the poor mother duck screams out, ______!

I understand if you have to strike me for this lol.
