Are You are Duck or a Rooster??? What does this mean

    Recently a friend of mine and I went to an antique store.  I have an odd sense of humor and found an antique and very beautiful postcard with a couple embracing (kissing actually...which was suggestive for THOSE days).  Probably from the '20s.  The caption was "Are you a Duck or a Rooster"....what does that mean?

    This continues to be an ongoing and inside joke between her and I. If we ask one another a question and don't have an answer we go "I don't know....are you a duck or a rooster?"

    I have found this post card so charming, I framed it and it's in my home office where I can look at it and laugh because it is just so nonsensical

    Please interpret

    Sounds like they were into some freaky stuff in the 20's.

    Could it be to do with this Childrens Rhyme:

    It'd take me a minute to tell you this rhyme
    Of the duck and the rooster that I knew one time
    A little duck hatched out a day or two late
    His mama had already gone to the lake

    The little red rooster had broken his foot
    So I put him into a little ole coop
    The little white duck was left out on his own
    So I put them together until they were grown

    Well the duck thought the rooster was limping and lame
    The rooster believed that the duck was the same
    And so they were pals in the coop in the barn
    They huddled together when it came a storm

    Well the weeks they went by and the little guys grew
    The little duck quacked and the rooster cocky dooed
    The duck loved the water and the rooster would scratch
    And neither one knew why they acted like that

    Well one day I turned them both free on the farm
    The rooster went straight to a roost in the barn
    The little duck went to the lake for a swim
    They liked different things even though they were friends

    Well now you should hear them when they say hello
    Though it may sound funny I know that it is so
    I know that is strange but I'll tell you it's true
    When they talk they go quacky doodle do
