Duck Friday


  1. If that's a duck, (and ducklings) then my arse is an orange, she clucked!

  2. Hmmm.

    Now that you mention it ...

    Duck Friday: the fraudulent period?

    Could be a duck...that's just got out of the dryer.

    Ah yes. A mother gameduck rearing another generation of fighting ducks to be employed in the ancient but outlawed bloodsport of duck fighting. Note the features of the breed most evident in the adult but increasingly present in the juveniles. Short powerful neck. No bill to get in the way of razor sharp teeth. No vulnerable eyes to be pecked out. No nostrils to be blocked by the spray of blood, flesh, feathers and dust from the fray. The carefully concealed webbing.

    Yes this is barbaric I grant you. But one cannot help admiring the sheer beauty and symmetry of these born to fight classic warriors of the water fowl world. Soon it will be off the famous duckgaming stadiums of the far east where a champion of good lineage can fetch a pretty penny indeed at pre-contest auctions.

    And for the loser it will always be Peking. A bad loser could be sweet and sour.

  5. Wow. I'm impressed Geoff.

    How long does it take you to explain to your therapist what you see when you look at an ink blot?

  6. Alright, I'll come clean. I saw a particularly unusual episode of "Boston Legal" the other day.

    Those episodes do tend to stick in your mind.

  7. Hee, hee, hee.

    That would explain it.

    Although it does beg the challenge of how one rates & ranks particularly unusual episodes of Boston Legal.
