Well, they can’t walk very fast, so shouldn’t feel so high and….(don’t say mighty, don’t say mighty)…Mighty.
Dude.. if I could score two goals in consecutive movies off of “The Flying V” (despite the fact that this has to be, without a doubt, the worst drawn-up hockey play of all time), I’d be feeling pretty mighty as well!
Plus, they can quack, which is awesome in its own right.
Just a list of a few people that would agree with you here:
Donald, Daisy, Daffy, Howard the, Dark Wing, Scrooge Mc, Huey, Louie, Dewey, Emelio Estevez, Molly Ringwald’s best friend in Pretty in Pink, AFLAC’s ad execs, Ernie (particularly in the bath), Ping…
Ok, this is making me go quackers.
“You gotta put down the ducky (put down the ducky)
You gotta put down the ducky (put down the ducky)
You gotta put down the ducky if you wanna play the SAXOPHO-O-O-ONE”
Nothing like replying to a comment three years late, but knowing that I’m not the only person that thought of this song as soon as I read this post – awesome!
Wow, I forgot how many cartoon ducks there actually were.
Oh! You missed Duckman! God, I miss Duckman…
DUCKMAN ! ! !
Ducks would be even more awesome if the whole “quacks don’t echo” thing hadn’t been debunked.
…Yes, but the very fact that people thought that quacks don’t echo…even though they DO makes Ducks sneaky AND awesome.
you quack me up.
Yay. Duck butts! What a great picture :)
And they taste SO GOOD!!!
I always liked ducks.
LOL I love how there is a score versus humans!
I have my pilot’s license, and I’m not too terribly sluggish in the water. So I’m AWESOME by association!!
They are hysterical when they come flying out of nowhere and land in the canal in the back yard, quacking their little beaks off! And the ducklings in the springtime, bobbing like little tub toys! We have 2 in the canal named Lucy and Ethel…they are always swimming down together….
When I was wee I wanted to be a duck
all the ducks are swimming in the water! fal de ral de ral do! fal de ral de ral do!
Squee! I love ducks <3 I use to have 2 as pets. Aweome!!!!
Plus their fat is possibly the tastiest thing on the planet. Duck confit anyone?
“Always make like a duck, keep calm on top and paddle like hell underneath”
I wrote this on a biology test in high school. I remember the teacher responded with “interesting…”
This happened in 1971 or 2. Ducks ruled even back then.
“The thread, the thread, boss,” I’d really love to see the thread I’ve “fantasized” about…you can do it, come on, I know you wanna’…
drum roll… Freddo, jdurley, Lara, Mike Dover, Magda…anybody?
playmesa, I imagine your biology teacher must have had a hay-day in the staff room over this one! Ducky!
Ducks are awesome! I love Ducks! Good post
u guys are soo gay
When I was little we were somewhere in the Rockies or Yellowstone (maybe Yosemite) camping. There was a pond known for being the home of beavers. We were there ALL day. Didn’t see one beaver. Suddenly my grandfather starts poking my grandmother yelling “Edna, I’ll be damned. That’s a beaver. Edna! A beaver!” Of course everyone gathered to look. No one could see it. They looked all over. My grandfather kept pointing. Yeah. It was a duck’s butt sticking up out of the water. THAT was an awesome duck.
I have to say that I sort of have an obsession with ducks that’s kind of ridiculous. This just gave me a reason for the obsession. =P
OMG I squeed when I saw this I love duckies so yay ^_^
OMG!!! I can’t believe this is on here!!!!! For some reason I have always loved ducks. No idea why and it is an AWESOME thing.
I Will have to come back again when my class load lets up – even so I am taking your RSS feed so I can read your site offline. Thanks.

And… Feeding ducks old bread makes me feel good and the ducks always seem pretty pleased too.

Even better than ducks are baby ducks. Yellow. Fuzzy. Following their mom around yet still somehow going in all different directions. Sleeping with their little duck bills tucked. Teenage ducks starting to get stripey and lanky. “Duck crossing” signs at the side of the road. Direct eye contact from a duck when you have bread in your hand. The cold duck shoulder when you run out. A big pile of ducks blasting into the pond all at once. Ducks stumbling on land. Chorus of duck quacks. Getting past all the pushy ducks to get a piece of bread to the passive duck at the back. Marvelling at how they manage to fly. Lucky ducks.
Quack. I’m a pig.
No, actually, I’m an awesome ninja. :D
OK, now that I’ve read this, I need to add comment on #979 “Anything that grows wings,” to…”A river dancing duck who can let anything and everything just roll off its back.”
I heart ducks.
This was sooooo much fun to read after the banter on May 5th.2011~”Peas” of all things!
Thanks Lara, Freddo, Mike Dover, JDHurley, anyone I may’ve missed, and Neil of course, for brightening my world!
It’s true. It brightens my day too. :)
another from the 70′s, growing up on the west coast of B.C.- rains a lot!
“Have a DUCKY DAY”
I believe there’s a tshirt shop somewhere downtown full of these types of humorous plays on ducks and Vancouver weather.
Get’s A+ for awesome attitude!
Glad you enjoyed it, Wendy!
Hopefully over time you’ll get caught up on the whole list (including the ones posted before you joined in the fun!). I know I’ve sure had a great time reading and commenting over all these years! (even when the posts are as bad as this one! hehe..)

Great post!! Never took the time to enjoy this post until now!!DUCKS
Love me some quackers!
Once,I was riding my bike in a park, and I rode past this bush. A mother mallard, along with her eight ducklings, was sitting in the bush, eating something. I rode past, and the mother jumped on my bike and smacked me with her wings! What a meanie! Her little ducklings waddled and quacked their way onto the path behind me, and seemed to be cheering for the mother. Right wing, now left! Uppercut! Sheesh.
I agree with those 3 solid points and even with the reader who mentioned the “quack” factor. I worked beside a lake in Iraq for a year and had to walk in puddles of their poo-goo, laughed almost daily at the ducks that squirt on their own feet, and at the duck behind them that tried to eat it. I raise our score to 3 also for having the sense not to make poopy on the sidewalks (if we can help it).
I have been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or weblog posts
in this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this website.
Reading this information So i’m happy to express that I’ve a very just right uncanny
feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most no doubt
will make certain to don?t forget this site and
give it a look regularly.
I love this blog. Plain and simple.
And I love duck bums.
