    I had never heard that before nor would I have ever thought that a duck wouldn't have an echo.. but found this list on the net and thought I would throw it out for offseason discussions.

    So the Buster's cracked the quack!

    Hmmm I tried this twice now.. there is no way I can lick my elbow.. I must have longer upper arms than most.

    Maybe if I pop my shoulder out again.. then maybe.. lol. Think I will trust the young flexible folks in the video.

    An Bozz... it is just something to throw out for fun.. as proven time and again... even the surest of facts don't make the cut in the PackerForum.. we seem to proven them wrong every time, lol.

    Fact 1: If you stood along the side of a road and the Chinese People lined up 8 abreast and marched past you, the line would never end. :shock:

    Fact 2: If you lined up all the Minnesota Vikings from their entire history, and they marched past you anyway they wanted, they would still have 0 Lombardi Trophies. :p
