The magician could see that his trick had limitations, even on ducks that were not very smart. But the magician was very curious and so he did not simply kill the duck to make it his dinner, instead he began to manipulate the surface of the pond. As he did so, the duck became agitated but continued to hold still. The magician continued to manipulate the pond water so that it tossed the duck this way and that. Sometimes the duck would lose its balance and be splashed unpleasantly. The duck became extremely disturbed and cried out.
"Please, dear sir, something is making the pond very turbulent! This is not very tranquil! Can you help me?"
