Have a good "cluck" Apr 3, 2004

That was cute, even if I don't understand the rest of the text. I think that "gack" would be "cluck", if it's the German for what a chicken "says".

(Click on "full screen" right above tot see and use the "Klick" button), the funny text is something like

thanks everyone, and a particular 'grazie' for the translation I did not ask for;-) This is what I call "added value":-):-)
