(FoxNews Radio) For the past four years, American taxpayers have paid nearly $400,000 so that Yale University could study the sexual conflict of waterfowl and “plasticity in duck penis length.”

The National Science Foundation awarded Yale University $384,949 for a study on “Sexual Conflict, Social Behavior and the Evolution of Waterfowl Genitalia.”

The discovery was first reported by CNSNews.com – and noted the grant was made available through President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
