Aluminum Duck

Once upon a time the earth was without form. The particular dirt was clay. Some folks formed the clay into ducks and fired the clay to create ceramic ducks. Others called the clay "bauxite".
They extracted aluminum from the clay and made pistons for diesel engines. Rod's Duck Farm realized the potential of used pistons from diesel engines. Using sand casting technology, these ducks are not wrought .... they are cast .... Oh, I don't know .... I guess they are made from clay. I guess that's right ... aluminum .... what's aluminum? refined clay ..... anyway, the earth was without form and then it became a duck. That's today's introducktion to metallurgy. Some day we may talk about ducktility. Ducktility is when you are tilling the soil and plow up a duck.
Quack, Quack!
