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

Don't swim with the tide (litterally don't go down with the crowd)
