    I think the duck must have done it (or I was wasted).

    Always had the username on every forum I've ever been on - easy to work out what it is.

    Haven't got an avatar.

    AA inspired the signature.

    <quack> Once again, I have to clarify a seriously misleading statement. I refer, m'Lud, to Devil Ducky's Diary, dated 14 June 2003 - and I quote....

    " Despite popular opinion, the radio-controlled duck which escorts batsmen back to the pavilion after they fail to contribute a score is NOT Devil Ducky, neither is it my cousin, Vasbert's Drake. It is an impostor which the ECB have used in order to cash in on the popularity of Cricket Web in general and this columnist in particular.
    I understand that Somerset did not like the idea of using a duck, because the club think that it will become cliched and monotonous if their current form is anything to go by. Consequently, they have run a competition amongst local schools to design a replacement. They winner is a motorised fish which will dispense huge ear-shaped sweets to the kids. Somerset plan to call it 'Candy Haddick'
    "

    I rest my case
