I'm not kidding when I say that it goes back 85 years. Obviously, the word has been around for some time and very similar to Deuce, as in the number 2. The reason it goes back 85 years in my family is due to my grandfather being ~3 years old and trying to say his last name and saying "daduce"(phonetically Dah-doos, like deduce). He would then be referred to as Da Duce, which then was shortened to Duce. It gets really awkward when my grand, dad. and brothers, and I are together and someone shouts out Duce! and we all look.
If anyone has ever been to the University of Illinois then you would know that the squirrels are very friendly to all humans. This is because there was a shortage of squirrels on campus and in order to counteract this the President of the university started a program to breed more squirrels on campus which would also be friendly. The squirrels were taken from the city and selected amongst squirrels who already showed comfort around humans.
I never realized that this happened elsewhere.
