My sone came up with the expression 'Scuse me I just trod on a duck'

In China guffing is not considered a problem. Indeed I was once give a presentation and demonstration on some calibration equipment just after lunch. Three male engineers and a lady engineer were present.

Just as I was about to get to a quite technical bit the lady engineer literally lifted a leg and let rip. I tried not to be thrown off the subject in hand. She repeated the action a few more times, all with a dead pan expression on her face. Was this a comment on my presentation skills I have always wondered?
