Gents of a Feather


Gents of a feather in deance of gravity and tradition

The ‘Spring Break’ theory hypothesises about why a particular breed of water fowl suered from a lack of

enthusiasm toward their traditional ying methods. Dating back to the early 1800s, the act of migration

to the larger, wetter party grounds took on a whole new social and practical aspect for this breed. In turn,

various alternate migratory travel methods were engineered and adopted. In the thousands of years

before this, water fowl populations would gather at smaller wetland locations to organise a convoy plan,

usually involving the scheduling and rotation of front yers for the traditional wind breaking V formation.

The common goal was the same for all – to nd safety in new lands where they could avoid harsh winters,

keep themselves fed, make new friends, and hopefully get laid. Many fowl agreed that the whole business

of relocating for food and fornication was exhausting and fraught with too many dangers. Thus this nal

decision to employ new modes of transport, to pursue the dream of that same holiday south, but without

putting a feather out of place. (Ducks have always been vain creatures.)
