From Chickens to Ducks

All of us are familiar with Walt Disney cartoons. It would be fair to say that everyone would have heard of Mickey Mouse and Donald
Duck. But have you ever stopped to think that Donald Duck is incorrectly named? Since ‘Donald’ is a boy’s name the correct form of the name should have been Donald Drake, not Donald Duck!

I guess Donald Duck is easier to pronounce than Donald Drake.

Having mentioned Mickey Mouse here is a little question, “What sound does a mouse make?”

The answer is given in the following story.

Teacher to a class of children:
Teacher: What sound does a dog make?

Gifted child No1: Woof ! Woof !

Teacher: Correct! And what sound does a cat make?

Gifted child No 2: Meow ! Meow!

Teacher: Correct! And what sound does a mouse make?

Gifted child No 3: Click! Click! (Computer mouse! Ha, Ha!)
