Duck in a basket

Pato is a game played on horseback that combines elements from polo and basketball. It is the national game of Argentina. Pato is Spanish for "duck", as early games used a live duck inside a basket instead of a ball.

Isn't Pato the name of the duck on some kids 'claymation' show narrated by Stephen 'QI' Fry?

Can something be cruel but funny at the same time? Perhaps.

Pato is also the name of a Brazilian soccer star - I think he is called that because he waddles a bit Oh, and he has webbed feet.
