Isn't the real title "The Duck Who Never Was"???

Capra or Carpa??? Are you just sleepy or you just take a heavy dose of
drugs? ;-)

Baik sekali, thank you. ;-) Sorry for the other milizers:-) Can't understand
a bit, huh? BTW, in what city were you?

Well, duck isn't always a duck if you know what i mean. Sure DD and the
"gang" were drawn in duck shapes. Sure they're ducks alright. But IMHO, the
creators and artists  (CB and DR included) likes to tell stories about DD
and U$ in their daily adventures which --if you notice-- showed the readers
how "human" can they be in emotions and thinkings. C'mon, guys The Golden
Helmet where DD showed his "darker side" made me surprised and entertained.
In short, what i'm tryin' to say is it's all about imaginary characters in
our real world(else why CB and DR likes to include "human" historical and
mythical stuffs in the "ducks" world).

i see. That's pretty interesting. What's his real pronouncable name then?

May i know what's with this whole Scandinavian things? i mean how come the
stories which to be printed to Scandinavians are selected as though they're
a bunch of low IQs. Hey, don't get me wrong. No offense was meant and that's
the impression i got after reading that line.

(One day, Liu Bei was walkin in the city and read the plague about the
recruitment to fight the rebels. After reading it, he sighed. Suddenly,
there's a loud voice from his back saying,"Why don't you join the army and
help defend our country than stand here and whining?" Liu Bei looked back
and--Three Kingdoms)
