I got a plasticised-wire thing came with my USB Mouse. What is it?

OK, this is odd: I recently bought (online) a little (portable/spare) USB Mouse (fitted with a spring-loaded, self-retracting cable-tidier). Fine. The mouse arrived today, along with a Yellow, Plasticised-wire (pipe-cleaner type thing), which has a cute duck face at the end of it, and a strange forked-tail. No other explanation. (Easter, perhaps?!), but I suspect it's some kind of mouse cradle to hang off a laptop... I don't get how this might be used, but wondered if anyone here could explain what it was / it's proper usage to me. Ta

peter & wolf recording with the line "lope ... waddle ... waddle ... lope"

Looking for an audio version of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Peter and the Wolf" that I heard in the 1980s where the narrator describing the wolf pursuing the duck says, breathlessly, "Lope ... waddle ... waddle ... lope ..." (describing their movements, with violins screeching in the background). I am looking for the particular recording that said it this way. It is particularly humorous and has great narration by a male voice in English. I thought it was the Peter Ustinov, but apparently not, as I bought it and it doesn't have this line (unless there is an alternative version floating around).

It's duck stretching time

I've got half a stewing duck in the freezer. I need it to stretch to feed six people. As it's going to be eaten around Christmas time I'd prefer to serve it with veggies (rather than, say, rice or pasta) and some kind of sauce. There's a few recipes out there but what are the awesome ones? I'm prepared to try a confit but I know that the amount of oil/fat wouldn't go down too well with other people. Long, slow, cooking is more than okay.

Should I steam or let this duck rest first?

Should I steam or let this duck rest first? For game birds, I've usually pricked the skin, quick-poached it, then let it sit uncovered overnight to crisp up the skin before I roast it. However, I've been using a new recipe for duck that calls for steaming it before you roast it (a wonderful recipe, btw). So the question is: should I let it sit overnight in the fridge before I steam it or after I steam it?
