There Are Three Certainties in Life

Ducks, ‘tockses, and more ‘tockses.

They’re making quite a rumpus, JoAnn S.

    Badonk-a-duck! Or should it be Ba-duck-a-donk? 🙄

    PS: RE: Rumpus: HAW!!

  2. Ref: hovertext, hilarious!! 😆 😆
    Have you been taking lessons form Oakley?

  3. ceejoe says:

    My goodness, butt I love me some duck tocks!

  4. Duck #1: anyone see my car keys? I dropped them somewhere around here…
    Duck #2: Is that them, over there by that rock?…
    Duck #3: Nah, looks like a… wait, car keys? I thought you flew in!

  5. Theresa says:


  6. wooo! there’s a full moon during ‘tocks time!

  7. Theresa says:

    This is a three-moon planet!

  8. jujube says:

    Just thinking, “Did Oakley write that hovertext?” The punning must be catching. It won’t be long till we’re ALL infected.

  9. 260Oakley says:

    I’ve said it before: Pyrit gets top billing; I’m just the punderstudy.

  10. Pyrit is as always a punster extrordinaire!

  11. Well I’ll be Donald! That’s the Daffyest thing I ever heard!

    deDUCKtions = WIN

  13. skippymom says:

    I’m so stupid, I got the hovertext, but not the title and top caption until I read it a second time.
    My brain, it is still on vacation.

  14. SlaveToCat says:

    Hey Huey, Dewey, and Louie look quick, there is a Swan, without any feathers swimming under you.

  15. SlaveToCat says:

    You just quack me up!!

  16. Don’t worry skippymom, it took me a couple of time reading it to get it also but in my case my brain NNEDS a vacation.

  17. Proof of the above statement…that’s NEEDS a vacation.

  18. The title is too true especially apparently if you are an expat!

  19. Duckses, tockses, cats in boxes,
    Guinea pigs in argyle sockses,
    Squirrels winning best in show,
    That’s what you’ll find on C.O.!

    (I’ve either had too much coffee, or not enough coffee….)

  20. skippymom says:

    Once upon a time there were three little foxes
    Who didn’t wear stockings, and they didn’t wear sockses,
    But they all had handkerchiefs to blow their noses,
    And they kept their handkerchiefs in cardboard boxes.

    A lemon meringue pie for anyone who knows this one.

  21. Know how to tell if it’s a male or female white duck? The male has the curled up tail feather.

  22. GeorgiaGirl says:

    “Once Upon a Time” by Alan Alexander (A. A.) Milne.

    But I don’t qualify for the pie (darn it) because I had to google it.

  23. Hey Skippy, you say that like its a BAD thing. Just go with the flow & enjoy it !
    Here, have a little rum drink with a paper umbrella & some coconut shrimp.

  24. This is just what the ‘tocktor ordered. Forget pain killers, laughter IS the best medicine 😀

  25. skippymom says:

    The title is actually “The Three Foxes”. You don’t get the pie, but here is a cupcake for making the effort.

  26. I wonder what them duckies are after?

  27. That’s swan butt if I ever saw it.

  28. simulflow says:

    All along the backwater,
    Through the rushes tall,
    Ducks are a-dabbling,
    Up tails all!

    Ducks’ tails, drakes’ tails,
    Yellow feet a-quiver,
    Yellow bills all out of sight
    Busy in the river!

    Slushy green undergrowth
    Where the roach swim–
    Here we keep our larder,
    Cool and full and dim.

    Everyone for what he likes!
    WE like to be
    Heads down, tails up,
    Dabbling free!

    High in the blue above
    Swifts whirl and call–
    WE are down a-dabbling
    Up tails all!

  29. Fird Birfle says:

    Well, YES, but that only brings the related question to mind.

    DID you ever see swan butt(s)???
