The verb came first with Tyrannosaurus Rex as well.

"Wee" Jimmy Krankie is so called because he smells strongly of piss.

Ducks are called ducks because they duck their head under the water. The verb came first.

I just looked that up in the OED and it's true! Apologies! But also apparently there are conflicting phrases "nice weather for ducks" which means "rainy" and "like a duck in thunder"/"like a dying duck in a thunderstorm" which mean "looking forlorn and miserable". So do ducks like rain or are they specifically scared of thunder and lightning?

Just to confirm the "verb came first" theory, the German verb "to duck" is "sich ducken".

What about cranes/cranes?

So the bird crane probably gets its name from from its cry. Whilst machine cranes get their name from the verb.

Is "Cranes in the Sky" by Solange about the birds or the machines?

It's about Miami's real estate boom, which was spurred by Frasier's skilful investing, although Sideshow Bob later destroyed most of it. Was Sandcastle Disco a real place, and what kind of state was the dancefloor in after a hard night spilling margueritas?

Don’t know if this counts, but I just found out that in 2035 the government is going to ban metal cars. Guess they’re gonna make cars out of rocks or something.

Nah, they’re banning mental cars. Clown cars and literal pussy wagons.

The naff song from off of Star Trek Enterprise wasn't written for Star Trek Enterprise, it was written for Patch Adams.

I don't wanna piss on your chips, but that's not quite true. It was actually 'Faith Of The Heart' that was used on Patch, which the naff song was based on.
