"all the ducks are swimming in the water" ?

qu'est-ce que fuck?

and apropos of not much ... why, oh why, when I write fiction, can't my characters stick to English? or French? or at least to languages I can spell? this week I'm apparently relearning Russian. Maybe next week, Japanese, or the week after Esperanto. Yes, I used to be reasonably fluent in these languages, but that was a LONG time ago.

D'oh. Worked for me earlier. I just found that by means of http://www.google.com/search?q=niceweatherforducks.mov ... so you could try one of the other hits.

A colleague helpfully provided the following:

Alla ankor simmar i vattnet (Swedish)
Kaikki ankat uivat vedessae (Finnish)

Wow, it's been so long and I (and others) have been referring to "all the ducks are swimming on the water", but it's "in", not "on"! Also, it's "fal da ral da ral da", or something, not "fa la la la la la". My illusions are shattered.
