Why a duck?

Best story of the night.
Father Kim saw a homeless woman out and about, carrying a duck.
She's raised this duck from a nestling. She insisted the duck was brilliant. It was indeed walking with her, like one might walk a well trained dog.
The duck walked to the edge of the sidewalk.
"CURB! CURB!" the woman screamed. The duck ignored her, and continued on, into the street.
"Really, this duck is so smart."
But all Father Kim could think: "It's a bird-brain."
