    Quack, quack, quack.

  2. love the duckies.

  3. mwaha. eeevil meg. i like it. 😛

  4. mariser says:

    there tewtally is a lawnmower. can’t you see how the feathers in their back are all puffed out?

    RUN duckies, RUN! Run like the wind, like the wind beneath your wings, er,…
    FLY duckies, FLY!

  5. weeeeeeeee!!!!!! fluffies!
    I want to scoop them up in rescue!

  6. OH! I love them!!!

  7. Maybe they are out on a recon mission for the otters, their cute little floffy cuteness as a cover…the second one is looking a bit suspicious there… *g*

  8. Six little ducks that I once knew
    Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones, too
    But the one little duck with the feather on his back
    He led the others with a quack, quack, quack
    Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack
    He led the others with a quack, quack, quack
    Down to the river they would go
    Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble, to and fro
    But the one little duck with the feather on his back
    He led the others with a quack, quack, quack
    Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack
    He led the others with a quack, quack, quack
    Back from the river they would come
    Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble, ho, hum, hum
    But the one little duck with the feather on his back
    He led the others with a quack, quack, quack
    Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack
    He led the others with a quack, quack, quack.

  9. i would like to feed them some “quackers”.

    *donald duck laugh* i QUACK myself up! 😀

  10. “Two little ducks went out one day,
    Over the hills and far away,
    But the onle little duck with the feather on his back,
    He led the other with a QUACK QUACK QUACK!
    Quack quack quack,
    Quack quack quack
    He led the other with a quack quack quack!”
    I used to sing that in kindergarten! Oh well, those duckies are cute, with the floofy bodies and little orange feet…

  11. LaurieC says:

    They look like they’re keeping a wary eye out for otters.

  12. Tracibub says:

    MmmmQuack went the little white duck one day.
    MmmmQuack went the little white duck.
    MmmmQuack went the little white duck one day. MmmmQuack, mmmmquack, mmmmquack quack quack.
    All the other ducks went Waddle waddle waddle waddle, waddle waddle waddle waddle, waddle waddle waddle waddle. All the other ducks went waddle waddle waddle waddle.
    Except for the little white duck who went MmmmQuack, Mmmmquack, mmmmquack quack quack!

    (other verses include snakes (Mmmmhsssss), and frogs (mmmmblat).

    Love those duckies!

  13. AkaneAli says:

    I vote yes on proposition “More Duckies”

  14. Tiny little duck ducks!

    I want to feel the earth quack under my feet!
    I want to cross The River Quack!
    The quacker the better!

  15. So cute!

    (But I can’t help to think that someday, when all the cuteness will be gone, they’ll taste delicious with an orange sauce and tarragon!)


  16. Soft feathers!

  17. you guys r silly says:

    Hey Meg:
    My daughter is entering pictures of her dog in a contest, and sent me a choice of 2, asking which one I thought was cutest. I sent her back some of *the rules of cuteness* so she could aim to take the cutest picture possible!!! Just wanted to let you know that BESIDES providing the world with the cutest frickin’ pictures EVAR, you’re ALSO providing a public service AND educating us!!!
    You Rock!!!

  18. Jay Fry says:

    I am ‘quackers’ for these quackers!

  19. Jan Spencer says:

    Duck song? How about..

    “Disco, disco duck…”

  20. LaurieC says:

    If they were mine, I’d name them Confit and L’Orange.

  21. There’s that soft-focus “noir romance” filter, again.

  22. Eeeeeew LaurieC! (lol)

  23. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    If there is a lawnmower coming those 2 better duck!! 🙂

  24. “As a fan of the cute I abhor the implication that Cute Overload is a haven for devouring our fuzzy and bright-eyed creatures. It is well known that we now have the problem relatively under control. Yours etc. Aubrey in a white wine sauce with shallots, mushrooms and garlic.”

  25. How about tarragon? I’ve got some fresh in the back yard. Not too much, though.

  26. LaurieC says:

    Theo, we never heard the outcome of “ooh, ooh, I have an idea from the other comment stream…or did the otters steal it?

  27. LaurieC says:

    Never mind, I just went back and found it.

  28. Laurie C says:

    Indeed. Dude, you’re good.

  29. Ducks!!!!!
    OMG teh cute! Can’t stand the cute!

  30. LOL Meg, best poem EVAH!

  31. i wuv how their widdle duck feets are perfectly in step

  32. It’s IDENTIDUCK!

  33. There should be a PhotoShop filter for “duckling fuzz.” Imagine all the images we could improve with duckling fuzz!

  34. Laurie C says:

    “Imagine all the images we could improve with duckling fuzz!”

    Your mission, Theo, should you choose to accept it…

  35. “…tarragon?”
    Too bad, it will be missed.

    To your fuzz be true
    I’m half nutty
    All for the love of you
    You’ll never be in steerage
    I can’t let you out of my peer-age
    But you do look sweet
    With your little feet
    Acting as one although you be two”

  36. oooh I love ducklings I do! Love the evil otters, Theo…indeed, duckling fuzz…

  37. Aubrey — whoa, THAT brings me back. Mom used to sing the un-ducked version of that to us when we were wee.

    Robin D — GIMP actually *has* that filter built in. It’s called “softglow.” (Photoshop probably has it too, only all professional and spendy-like.)

  38. wingle-wangle
    [the sound of two ducks walking]

  39. The Guy Over There says:

    Duckies duckies and not a bathtub in sight.

    I wanna pet something yellow and orange now. Even a traffic cone will do at this point. 😦

  40. they little feet slap on water and crunch on grass.

    [murmuring] whackwhackwhack

  41. Save the duckies!!![runs away, screaming and hysterical]

    EVIL CLOWN pursues with earth-shaking stomps.

  42. The Guy Over There says:

    Wow, that purged that sensation fast. O_O

    Thanks, Theo!

  43. In my dreams, those blades of grass are 20 feet tall and these paleolithic ur-ducklings are stomping towards a major metropolitan area.

  44. I guess I should’ve spelled that “quackquackquack” so it didn’t look like Evil Clown had gotten the duckies..

  45. Theo has only posted a picture of the coming apocalypse! Escape! Escape from The Insane Clown Posse!

  46. http://spamusement.com/index.php/comics/view/2

    (and the whole site’s funny)

  47. displayname says:

    You put your right foot in,
    You put your right foot out,
    You put your right foot in an’ you shake it all about.
    You do the hokey-pokey an’ you turn your self around.
    That’s what its all about!
    Quack! Quack!

  48. Aubrey–I could go no further than the the first page of that thing. SIMB* Why, I ask, WHY are clowns *so scary*?!

    *shaking in my boots

  49. A Fixed Smile=Fear

    It implies a mind that is pathelogical, a person that is a sociopath, a logic that can’t separate right from wrong.

    Wait…keep calm…keep you eye on the sparrow…er, ducks.

  50. Sorry, thought I was back in the ‘hood. ‘keep YOUR eye on the sparrow’

  51. Laurie C says:

    Aubrey, you must have a great ‘hood, with the shallots and all. I think I’d like it.

  52. It’s a great ‘hood to some, but to me it’s just chrome.

  53. holy schmoop that spamusement is fun.

  54. “A Fixed Smile=Fear”

    I think you’re right. It’s like that Evil Clown could do ANYTHING and just keep smiling about it…it could chase the ducklettes with hands outreached, laughing and grabbing and grabbing until it caught the tiny, fuzzy, sweet babies…..!!!!

    ::Honkshu::…”WHa’? Where am I?! Oh the duckies are sooo cute!”

  55. This picture makes me sad. Last night when I got home i found a poor, poor baby ducky that had been killed by cats in the neighborhood. Probably mine! Later on I saw several adult ducks in a row across the street in mourning! What could I do but scold the kitties for what they had done & ask the duckies why oh why had they let the little one out of their site. 😦

  56. “Why, I ask, WHY are clowns *so scary*?!”

    They just *are.* I’m told that I was frightened of my Jack in the box when small, and I’ve seen little kids react that way, too…

    On a more quacky note, I do so love these lil’ beakies!

  57. (Edit: BEF and all, but then, I’m a BEF *fan.*)

  58. British Expeditionary Force? You’re interested in WWI too – can you imagine 100,000 Old Contemptible Otters?

  59. Tony James says:

    Brenda – nature red in tooth and claw, and all that. How do you know the adult ducks were in mourning? I’ll bet it was more like “Woah, dude – did you see that? That little guy got totally stomped – that’s gotta hurt in anyone’s language.”
    If you checked out the NYTimes article earlier in the week about motherhood…
    “Here is a mother guinea hen, trailed by a dozen cotton-ball chicks…But wait. That guinea hen is walking awfully fast. In fact, her brood cannot quite keep up with her, and by the end of the day, whoops, only two chicks still straggle behind.”
    Quick now, go back to the this pik
    and you’ll be ok 🙂

  60. BlushBlushBlushBlush
    Got my posts crossed!!!

  61. “British Expeditionary Force? You’re interested in WWI too – can you imagine 100,000 Old Contemptible Otters?”

    No, but the image is funny!

    I used to work in a small suburb of D.C. that had “mad” free-range chickens. I don’t know where they came from, or how they escaped, but many locals used to leave chicken treats outside for them. They were fiesty little birds, and more than able to defend themselves. They even knew how to cross the road *and* avoid getting flattened in traffic – no mean feat!

    I think an Urban Duck could do rather well for itself…

  62. Maybe that’s how those Road-tisserie chickens were able to cross the road so successfully and agressively. They had ‘mean feet’.


  63. grouchy ladybug says:

    why are clowns scary? because there is something beyond sinister about a grown man dressed in costume cajoling little children to follow him.

    and in the next life i’d like to be a duck. they always semm so…happy!

  64. Since we’re talking about scary, doesn’t anyone think the grass looks a little scary?

  65. “Urban Duck”

    You must remember Robert McCloskey’s “Make Way for Ducklings”…and in downtown Boston by the common you can see the little bronze duckies crossing the street.

  66. Yes – aeons ago, Captain Kangaroo used to read the book on his show.

  67. “Make Way For Ducklings”: One of my favorites!!! And yet I haven’t thought of that title in years!


  68. oh man. I want to buy a hamster tee shirt. you should sell them again. I would totally buy one, oh those ducks are cute too.

  69. I just found this site and I am cracking up! Great idea for a site, guys. I love it.

  70. I heart Quackmobiles!!!

  71. Tony James: I like your rendition of what the adult ducks were thinking. I am sure there are many more babies they can care for. Like you say, nature.

  72. sugar_monster! says:

    bless that pic is so cute

  73. oooh… the fuzz on them looks like an aura.

  74. I want to pinch their little beaks, gently.

  75. OMG the duckling fuzz.
    Also: heart the “Make Way For Ducklings” sculture in Boston. And how you can ride on the “swan boats” amongst the swimming ducks!

    I might leave NYC if I could have a duck pond.

  76. Sorry about the second link being broken. Other two sites have plenty of images though.

  77. Displayname says:

    Bet, you beak-tweaker, you!

  78. Thank You I was impressed with this website.

  79. funniest caption ever! Their expressions match it so perfectly!

    I’ll save you, duckies! *throws self in front of lawnmower*
