Duck Punching

Alright, I want you to punch that duck!

What? Why?


It will make you a better programmer!

But I'm not even angry with him.


Just do it!

But he's my friend! We play pinochle on Thursdays!


Look, I don't like this any more than you do, but we need to keep our skills current.

Can I go?

You are probably wondering what "pinochle" is. Read this article. As a child, I remember my father and grandparents playing the game quite often. It remains (somewhat) popular here in Pennsylvania, but I rarely meet anyone elsewhere that has even heard of it.

If you are interested, you can also read this article where I talk about how I use Routers as Midddleware with the Express framework in Node web apps. I've met fewer people who are familiar with that than I have people who are familiar with pinochle.
