The final proof that duck is good for you

I was paying my monthly visit to Getafix to get my life-giving herbs and magic potion.
While the cauldron was bubbling I idly read the boxes of medicines.

Contre états grippaux - Trucmachinbidulle... (Against symptoms of flu - Oojamaflip)

Interesting, I thought. What's in it ?

Extraits de foie et de coeur de Anas Barbariae. (Extracts of liver and heart of Barbary Duck.)

Duck ? Duck liver and heart ?

So I asked Getafix, "In your opinon, does this work ? After all, it's duck."

He laughed, "Let's just say that there's hundreds of people who take it... Perhaps the effect is psychological but if it makes you feel better, who cares."
