In the game of pool, it is one of your balls that sits in the pocket but has not fallen, thus blocking another from putting their ball in that pocket. Good for defense. Usually you don't aim for that ball unless you have to. Also, when you do choose to take that shot on the duck, it is very easy and allows good ball movement afterwards.
"Man this guy is good. I'm gonna keep that duck in that pocket to block his shot." -or- "My duck is blocking his ball, so I'm good" "That ball in the blocking the pocket is A duck!"

Short form of the last part of the famous punchline "But that's not a Duck!" Saying "A Duck!" should always be followed by insane laughter for no perticular reason.

Also can be used as a random exclimation.
Bob and Jack are talking when Paul walks up. Bob suddenly yells "A duck!". Bob and Jack errupt in laughter. Paul is forced to laugh or admit he doesn't understand. It's great fun either way.
