The BS Duck Test again


Dear Hillary,

Is it OK to apply the British Standard (BS) Duck Test to the likelihood of being ripped off in a bar relationship? (The BS test if you’ve forgotten “If a bird looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”) I have a friend who is thinking about hooking up with one of these ducks. What’s his chances?


Dear Barry,

Now, will your mate’s bar girl rip him off when the relationship ends?’ Of course not, ask Greg Norman ($103m), Paul McCartney ($48.7m), Prince Charles ($45.2m), and he’s next!
