Q is for Quack
The quiet of the morning is broken by the quack quack quacking of the ducks and some geese honking too.
I've also seen a quack or two in my time but that's another story. I knew that a quack means someone who promoted unproven or fraudulent medical practices. I didn't know that the origin of quack comes from the archaic word quacksalver which has Dutch origins (kwakzalver in contemporary Dutch). The word literally means hawker of salve. In the middle ages the word quack meant shouting. I have paraphrased and copied this information from wikipedia. So without anymore quacking from me, link up and visit each other for some Q fun.***
