When in crisis, be like a duck.
Calm on the surface, but paddling furiously underneath.
Stupid guy says...
That sounds great Mr. A Wise Guy, but what if because of the crisis you feel like a duck out of water? :P
Another Wise Guy, in a very wise phrase had mentioned 'fish out of water' or something.
But its the nature of Stupid guy to confuse it with 'duck out of water'.
