This is more a fun exercise, less a sincere solicitation for help.

We raise and process a few hundred ducks per year, selling to restaurants, at a farmers market, and through a poultry CSA.

For our market setup, I made a chalkboard sign with an outline of the state of Missouri and inside the words "Eat MO Duck."  (Get it?)  Underneath, I have alternated two little one-liners, intended to elicit a laugh:

"Like tasty little two-legged pigs."

...and...

"It's all it's quacked up to be."

So I'd like to branch out a bit, hopefully garnering a little attention while maintaining a sense of levity.  We don't have a problem selling ducks, I'd just like to make it a bit more interesting.  We sell all our birds whole, for what it's worth.

So what have you got?  Hit me with some ideas.

"Some might swear when life gets hard. I just say, 'Duck it!'" (this needs more work, but you get the idea...)

We came up with:

"Once you go duck, everything else is just fowl."

"Waddle you having for dinner?"

"Duck - the new red meat"

"Dare to Duck"

"A dabble will do ya"

"got duck?" (With a funny duck photo, aka a "got milk?" parody.)
