ZOMG! Imagine the "Global Climate Change" (tm)! The cold places are warm. The warm places are cold. Polar bears swimming in equatorial waters! The stone heads of Easter Island pointing the opposite direction!
Ducks are at it all the time. A magpie finds a dead magpie, it gets a twig, rests it against the body, and stands there contemplatively for ten or fifteen seconds before flying away - paying its respects, so to speak. Whereas when a male duck encounters a dead duck - sexy time!
