    Daffy Duck
    (was I the foist one, to add THAT part in? oops dangling preposishe alert!!!)

  4. O NO he (she/it) DI-unt says:

    Brings to mind the eternally nostalgic “Hello Mudda; Hello Fadda;
    Here I yamin Camp Granada …”

    (etc etc & yippppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee & other such undignified dealy-O’s)

  5. duckling butt = platypus face. discuss.

  6. The Dutchess of Cupcake says:

    Thanks, I needed that little giggle–a good way to start a rather dreary-looking rainy Monday.

  7. O NO he (she/it) DI-unt says:

    @ kasia:

    YES, indeedy.

  8. O NO he (she/it) DI-unt says:


    “Sharp+ + “Eyed” = ?????

    eyeballs generally roundish.

    (or, in Daffy Duck Toimonology: “Dithkuth”.)

    Let the commentroversies commence.

  9. Ducklings are a great way to start ANY morning – but duckling derriere – now, that’s Monday morning-strength happy.

  10. gooeyctr says:

  17. 260Oakley says:

    Butt quacks caught on (duck) tape!

  18. O NO He/she/it DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Miss 2600akley: didjou already know that there exist (some perhaps many)
    websites whose raison d’etre c’est SEULEMENT pour l’humeur de la

    DUCK TAPE??????

    (or have you already memorized all their material?)

  19. O NO He/she/it DI-unt!!! says:

    ooooh oooh (a la Horseshack or however his name spelled) I GOT ONE



  20. Looks like they disguised their butts as fuzzy orcas. It’s a defensive technique?

  21. Katrina says:

    Dear, darling duckbutts! Smiling at us all!

  22. 260Oakley says:

    @O NO
    I never visit those sites because I’m afraid they will infect my computer with a tape worm.

  23. I like duck butts and I cannot lie.

  24. I love the picture of the ducks, but I love Theresas comment “I like duck butts and I cannot lie” LOL, that was funnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnny.

  25. I just love the smiley faces on these ‘tocks. That’s the first thing I saw through blurry eyes, the yellow-on-black smiley faces. Too prosh…

  26. AuntieMame says:

    Butt quacks…BWAH!

    260Oakley, you should be declared a national treasure. 😀

  27. ScoutsMom says:

    My furbaby, Scout, is a calico and has similar markings on her back. I like to think that she is a happy kitty cause she is always smiling. Would love to get her on CuteOverload, but I have not yet invested in a digital camera. Maybe someday.

  28. O NO He/she/it DI-unt!!! says:

    Theresa: are you channeling His Theoness today?

    @ 2600: you jist never CAN “walk on by” one, can ye?

    And a mighty good line, ’twas, Ma’am!!!
    (*Doffs hat or bonnet and bows obsequiously.*)

    (*and stuff*)

  29. Biscuit Tin says:

    When a duck swims by with an itty-bitty waist and a “down” thing in your face…..

  30. Suzanne says:

    Their little smiles remind me of those ads with the milk mustaches. Got milk?

  31. @Biscuit Tin, or waddles. 😀

  32. sittin’ on docks, showin’ off ‘tocks

  33. @ONH/S/ID, I wish!

  34. Peeps (or quacks?) do we prefer duck butts or duck tocks? Both expressions have a pleasing assonance (see what I did there?) 😀

  35. camille says:

    Getting an early start on Tocktober?

  36. 260Oakley says:

    I think both fit the bill and we should keep them in our arsenal. 😉

  37. You all quack me up! Now I’m in the mood for some cheese and quackers 🙂

  38. Mod-in-Training says:

    [Am I the only one who is also thinking of Babar?


  39. Dual plumbers’ quacks

  40. chanpon says:

    That is definitely a contender for one of the best sets of ‘tocks this year.

  41. (snerk!)

  42. victoreia says:

    Normally I take exception to the phrase “Happy Monday”, but I’ll make an exception here…. *snicker* Y’all are punny!

  43. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa and Oakley: Heh-heh! 🙂

  44. BStrange says:

    Oakley puns! Oakley puns! *ded* Of course, it’s thanks to Theresa that I now have an “I Like Duck Butts” earworm. Help. Me.

    The smilink ducktocks are adorable, now I miss hand-rearing late-season ducklings when I had the sound to go with the picture: “Wheeze-squeak, wheeze-squeak, I am too little to quack yet, wheeze-squeak!”. It was very awwwwww putting them next to their fuzzy hot water bottle and watching them snuggle up (behold, the disappearing feet and necks trick!) and pass out.

    The green water, though, brings back less adorable memories of why green water and ducks go hand-in-hand. Gack.

    And kasia, you’re right. *tilts head, stares* They DO look like platypus faces. M-I-T’s “Babar” reference took longer, until I flipped the image upside down…

  45. BStrange says:

    Oh, and dub1, I thought “plumber’s quack” was when a duck goes for something on the bottom of the pond and all you can see is a vertical duck rump, and maybe feet?

  46. Hon Glad says:

    Duck down derrieres, doubly delightful.

  48. augh — that earworm!! I don’t want it *sob*

    I find it interesting that as I was biking to work today, I observed two ducks in the river that I have been watching since they were chicks. They were sleeping together, too. But, as they are no longer chicks, they did not greet me with smiling bums. So sad. However, they looked so content on their log in the summer sun that I was very jealous of them — biking 6 km on a narrow, rural Japanese road.

    Ducks make me happy. They remind me of the only joke my Papa ever pulled in the 18 years we shared this earth.

    Thank you, sender inner and CO peeps!!!!

  49. Awww, what wee morsels! You could just pop ’em into your mouf. om om om.

    Actually I think my favorite thing in this picture is how they look all dried and fuzzy/fluffed, except their wee butts, which are still just a little damp and spiky. awwww.

  50. Wojtek, how is that remotely related to duckling derrieres?
