The lengths some people go to to be a jerk -- and presumably funny in their minds -- are astounding. Take last night's game in San Jose between the Sharks and visiting Ducks as an example.

In the third period of the Ducks' 3-2 win in the Shark Tank, play was briefly halted. Ducks beat writer for the O.C. Register Eric Stephens tweeted out what the delay was all about. "There's a stoppage in play as someone threw an apparent dead duck on the HP ice. Now that's fowl. Fans like it."

He was right. Somebody readlly did throw a dead duck onto the ice. No really, a true dead duck -- or as I like to call it after a 24-hour marathon of A Christmas Story, Chinese turkey.

Of course, video was captured of the tossing by none other than the offender's friends. Peer pressure is rough, kids.

As you can see in the video, the man runs all the way down the aisle to the boards before flipping the duck onto the ice in front of Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller, who got the referees' attention then quickly did an about-face and returned to his net. While the duck was removed from the ice, the man was removed from the stadium to the applause of the fans. Whether they were applauding the duck tossing or the fan tossing I'm not sure, but I'd hope it's the latter.

Of course, the part that is unstated as of yet is that this guy literally had a dead duck with him for more than 2/3 of the game, waiting to pull this stunt. Not to mention all the time he had the dead duck before the game and in transportation. Seems to me if you were going to pull a stunt like this that you'd at least get it done with a minute or two into the game. I won't give this guy a lot of credit, but his dedication deserves some recognition.

The Sharks fans are the last fan base that should be teasing the Ducks right now. Anaheim has only 10 wins on the season, three of them have come against the Sharks. The Ducks only have three road wins on the year, two of them in San Jose (including Monday). Yikes.

H/t to Pro Hockey Talk for the video find
