“When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck” – James Whitcomb Riley (poet)
In Germany we have a saying, for people with a poor swimming technique: “swimming like a leaden duck”. The row boat on this picture wouldn’t sink like a leaden duck. Also the ducks will not drown, but I like the ambiguity in regarding to the picture! Because currently this boat didn’t floats anywhere.
