    I'm baaaaaack,(Bet you're real happy 'bout that eh?) with a song.

    50 little ducks went out one day over the hills and far away.
    Mother duck said quack quack quack quack...
    But only 49 little ducks came back
    49 little ducks went out one day over the hills and far away mother duck said quack quack quack quack
    But only 48 little ducks came back.

    I'm sure you know the rest of the song Caz.. Humdinger, whadya reckon.?

    And before you say anything . NO I am not quacking up and I am stone cold sober.

  4. Cubicle - glad you noticed the extra effort I put in; took me forever to round up that many ducks ... you've no idea!

    Kath - now that you've ducked back in, I can safely duck out to do my chores, while you keep an eye on the ducks; and they had better all still be there when I duck back or I'll be forced to get a new duck-sitter!

    Errr.. Ahhh... Cazzzz. I have a little confession to make. There is one duck missing.

    .Look every thing was fine,except for this one little duck. Wouldn't do as it was told. (Black duck of the family I reckon.) In the end it just drove me had. I.I..I just had to shut the duck up!!!!!!!

    Sound of running water as Kath rinses the bloodied knife.

  6. One day a duck wanders into the corner store, goes up to the counter, and says to the guy behind it:

    "Got any bread?"

    "Nope," says the guy behind the counter.

    "Got any bread?" asks the duck, after a few seconds.


    "Got any bread?"


    "Got any bread?"


    "Got any bread?"


    "Got any bread?"

    "NO!" Roars the guy behind the counter. "And if you say that one more time, then I'LL NAIL YOUR F*&%^*&^ING BILL TO THE COUNTER!"

    "Got any nails?" says the duck.

    "Nope," says the guy behind the counter.

    "Got any bread?"

  7. You've started something very dangerous, timt. Here's one I found at (God help me) "Celebriducks":

    A man is driving a pick-up truck down the road with a bunch of ducks standing in the back. A police officer pulls him over and asks him where he thinks he's going with all those ducks. The driver says that he just doesn't know what to do with them anymore. The officer says, "Look, there's a zoo not far from here and that's where you should be taking them. That will take care of your problem." The man thanks the officer and drives off with his ducks.

    The next day the officer again sees the pick-up truck once again speeding down the road. This time, though, all the ducks in the back are standing there wearing sunglasses. The officer pulls over the driver over and says, "I thought I told you to take them to the zoo!" "I did that," said the driver, "but now they want to go to the beach!"

    Okayyyy. Kath rolls up sleeves(again)

    A couple go for a meal at a chinese restaurant and order the "chicken surprise"

    The waiter brings the meal served in a lidded cast iron pot.

    Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly with two beady eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.

    "Good grief, did you see that?" she asks her husband.

    He has not, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises,and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down.

    Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening and demands an explanation.

    "Please sir," says the waiter, "What you order?"

    The husband replies, "Chicken Surprise"
    The waiter replies.............

    "Ahhh..... So solly..... I bring you Peeking Duck"

    Rubber Duckie shares Royal bath

    The Queen is reported to share her bath with a yellow rubber duck that wears a crown

    According to The Sun, the toy was spotted by a decorator as he refurbished Her Majesty's Buckingham Palace living quarters

    The newspaper also says a spokesman for the Queen would not comment on the duck

    The paper reports the unnamed decorator saying: "I was repainting the Queen's bathroom walls in the same colour she's had for the last 50 years when I glanced down at the bath. "I nearly fell off my step-ladder when I saw the yellow rubber duck with an inflatable crown on its head

    "I suppose she was given it by her grandchildren as a joke."

    It was revealed recently the Queen has a mobile phone and a Big Mouth Billy Bass novelty singing fish

    Now sales are soaring.


    I make no comment here.

  12. Big Mouth Billy Bass was featured heavily in around series three of The Sorpranos. (Someone gave it to Tony as a birthday present, not long after he had sent one of his closest friends to sleep with the fishes - in this case, literally - and the singing fish tortured him, even in his dreams.)

    I always thought it vaguely disconcerting that the Queen owned one.
