[edit] Disambig.

To reduce confusion between the duck pond email and Duckpond game, I am going to rename them: duck pond (email) and duck pond (game). duck pond will be a disambiguation page. Does this sound good to everyone?. - Drhaggis 16:45, 17 Sep 2004 (MST)

It doesn't seem necessary to me. I vote we do the same thing as for Pom Pom/pom pom and let the case specify it. --Upsilon
The game Duckpond is one word. Is this acceptable? - Drhaggis 21:47, 26 Oct 2004 (MST)
I suppose it should really be Duck Pond, given that that's how it's written on the Paper? Should we move it? --Upsilon

[edit] British Slang

The note about "feeding the ducks" also being british slang is bugging me because I searched a bunch of british slang websites, and still can't seem to find out what it actaully means! Does anyone know this? 00:38, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Masturbation, I believe. -- Tony Stony

I think that might have something to do with why the Atari version is no longer playable. Before I learned what 'feeding the ducks' supposedly ment, I noticed that if you held down the F button, it would move the hand very quickly in the crotch region, in a way that seemed possible to interpret rudely. Maybe I was reading too much into it... but it did look kinda bad.

This fact is written rather poorly, and obviously a family website cannot define it elegantly anyway. Need it be mentioned? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:18, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

Also might be of note that the games (both versions) seem quite suggestive that "feeding the ducks" is slang for masturbation. Is it likely that the original question used a less subtle euphamism and it was changed simply to make it funny? --soxpm

To the best of our knowledge, TBC do not change the emails in any way (except perhaps editing them for length). I doubt they changed anything here. — It's dot com 17:46, 26 April 2006 (UTC)
Actually, the person who claimed he sent portrait's email said they altered his last name. - Joshua 18:52, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Ask Rodger

Yes indeed. Consult 'Rodger's Profanisaurus' on the Viz website for all your (very rude) British slang needs. Most of them were made up for the purpose of filling its pages, but it's still good for a giggle.

Probably the least offensive entry in the profanisaurus is the 'monkey bath'. This is a bath so hot that when you sit down, you involuntarily go 'oooh oooh ooh, aah aah aah'.'

[edit] Revisiting British Slang

I re-read the remark about the slang, and it just felt awkward. If we cannot openly say what the slang term means in the article, I think it should go unmentioned, as it seems just uninformative as is. Please share opinions. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:26, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

If you don't know, you don't need to know. I see no reason to keep this fact. Heimstern Läufer 21:40, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
I agree. The curious can read it on the talk page, anyway. I only just found out what it could mean, and the sbemail did not get any funnier. There you go. Loafing 21:47, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
Second. -Brightstar Shiner 21:48, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
Before I read that point, I thought it was just randomness. Now that I know, it detracts from the e-mail. I would love to see others spared that. Take it out, please. - Point7Q 02:32, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
I honestly have no idea what it means, and if anyone does, it probably be best if that person reworded it. If no one knows, well, I guess we could just remove it. Bluebry 02:36, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
FF has been removed. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:40, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Ron Kiwi?

Okay. Just to clarify, despite the similarities in our respective names, I was NOT the one to send this email. Complete and total coincidence. --Not Ron Kiwi 13:19, 10 Feb 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Must... check... e-mail...

Is it wise to say that strong bad may be referencing to that "Must... resist... temp-tation..." line from uh, Star Trek? 16:56, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

probably not. — Defender1031*Talk 17:20, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
