The reason the Venice canals have a steep vertical rather than a gradual slope: ducks pooped on the slope, and “…who wants a slimy, defecated slope instead of a nice one you could moor your boat against.”

Sounds reasonable, but I wish we could have arrived at a better solution to a problem animal than habitat elimination — like genetically engineering ducks that don’t poop.
