Description:Translation (by Seng Pan) This is a funny story. All God's creations have signs for male and for female. But the cock and hen don't have obvious differences in genital. According to the anatomy, not only the cock but also the hen has only one hole for reproduction and disposing the waste. It has the reason. Long time ago, the God created all things. At that time, there was no gender differences. One day, the God announced to come and get male organ. All the male creatures went there to get. The cock also ran and took it. On his way back home, he met a Muscovy duck. The Muscovy duck walked slowly by squawking "Ha, ha, ha". And he seemed like he couldn't reach to the God in a short time. And the cock noticed that he was a kind of his species which had only two legs. So, the cock was worried that his species would not be able to get the organ. Therefore, he was planning to give his to the Muscovy duck and to get one more from the God. So, he gave his to him. And he ran back quickly to the God. Unluckily, it was all gone. There was nothing left. And all the male organs ran out. Even though he didn't get it, he said, "I'm not depressed. Anyhow, I will at least fart inside the female organ." Therefore, when the cock mates with hen, he always farts. On the other hand, when the Muscovy duck mates, it squawks "Shap, Shap, Shap"('shap' means 'to lend') as the cock lent him the male organ. That's the reason why till today, the Muscovy duck squawks "Shap, Shap" while mating. Because its organ was lent from the cock. The same as what you said just now, it's like borrowing the words from Chinese.
