Duck vrs Chicken
30 Jan 07
Let's see, i think the only answer I can give you for this one is that people who yell "duck" to help you out is because when something comes towards your head, you actually move downward in a "duck"ing motion this something that ducks actually do. As for being insulted by a word like "chicken" we all know that "chickens" 'cluck and flap their wings even though they can't fly! cluck=crying, "flap"=waving arms in frustration or anger. So when you see a person behaving in this movement, it reminds you of a "chicken" and that's why nobody likes being called a "chicken". Other than that I hope this sense to you!!
