Sounds like another recipe I heard.  Seems this fellow, many years back, 
rolled up a gas station to fill up and the he told the pump jockey that he 
had been duck hunting.  Fellow said "Ducks? Ain't no ducks round here 
abouts".  Fellow said "sure there are I'll show you."  He opened up his 
trunk and the service station attendant looked in. and said " your are 
wrong, those ain't no ducks."  Other fellow says "if they ain't ducks what 
are they".  Pump jockey says, "They be diedapers."  Other fellow says "Ok so 
they are diedapers, how do you cook them."  Attendant says "you can't cook 
diedaper."  Fellow says sure you can, they are birds ain't they, just tell 
me how to cook'em and I'll eat'em.  Pump jockey says, "Ok... you pluck'em 
and clean'em then put them in a pot with some butter, everything tastes 
better with butter, and a brick.  Set your oven to 425 degrees and roast'em. 
Keep checking ever so often and when that brick gets soft them diedapers 
will be done... I guarantee.
