There is a brass duck on the right side of the tool box. It serves as a hat rack, to hold the official Rod's Duck Farm engineering hat. Pat Adams came up with this duck. I never checked it for hidden cameras and microphones. The duck has built-in hooks that serve as key kolders.
There was a TV show with Jim Carey, years ago, called The Duck Factory. Some people call the Prairie Pothole Region of the Duckotas (Yankee & Confederate Duckota) the Duck Factory because a bunch of ducks get born there. They fly south. Because they are Yankee ducks, we shoot them - sometimes with guns, other times with cameras.
Ducks make a nice addition to any toolbox.
Quack, Quack!

Wild ducks are good to eat. In the old days, they were downed with lead shot so it was especially important to chew carefuly and spit out the bird shot.
Nowadays lead shot is banned so people use more palatable projectiles. It's probably better to spit out the shot, even if it isn't lead.
Quack, Quack!
