It was probably the bankers fault the duck was on the ledge in the first place. Homeless, pregnant, the price of feed through the roof, employment prospects nil- all the positions taken by the better looking younger ducks. And when she decides to end it all by leaping off a ledge the 'banker' gets in the way! throw meself under a passing car! the pipper stops the pipping traffic! in the end gives up and goes to see if its possible for a duck to drown itself!
