wet wings

Need urgent help, please.

I'm editing a Ukrainian translation of a 'Ghost Whisperer' episode for TV. Here's a piece of dialogue from it (between Melinda and a detective who was acquainted with a deceased woman whose ghost Melinda is helping):

- You were telling her about your first arrest.
- She told you that? It was just a purse snatcher. I chased him into this lake and collared him about chest-deep in water.
- And for 2 weeks after that, you had flippers in your locker and wet wings on your desk.
- She laughed so hard.


What kind of 'wings' could those be? (The translator just rendered it literally).


Thanks everyone in advance.

UPD: SOLVED.
