Make Way for Duck Lines

You think your commute is a grind? Try waiting for 2,000 ducks to cross the road!

    where is this?

  2. Just one more ducking traffic jam.

  3. The YouTube video says Pankhaton, Thailand.

  4. victoreia says:

    They’re all going to DuckCon 2013.

  5. Tony James says:

    I’ve seen them do this in Cambodia – they move the ducks from one paddy field to another, they use them to keep down various bugs and worms that live in the mud and would eat the rice crop. A village usually “shares” the ducks among all the farmers.

  6. And I would walk five hundred ducks
    And I would walk five hundred more

  7. purplepatch says:

    Ducks always sound like a bunch of old ladies gossiping at bingo. Edna is complaining to Ethel about her dicky knees, Beryl and Violet are comparing the shortcomings of their husbands and Mabel and Gladys are scandalising each other with the doings of the flibbertygibbet next door.

  8. Reblogged this on Forget the Viagra, Pass Me a Carrot and commented:
    I think that it is a testament to our human sentimentality that people would wait an age for 2,000 ducks to cross the road rather than envisage roasted and served up with orange sauce. It puts a new spin on ‘Why did the duck cross the road’

  9. I feel stupid for asking this because I’m sure there’s a simple answer but… why wouldn’t they just fly…?

  10. Alice Shortcake says:

    If they’re semi-domesticated perhaps their wings have been clipped?

    Just sitting here, waiting for a drake in the traffic.

  12. Tony – That’s very interesting. Thanks!

    KittyBank cancelled their Frequent Flyer Miles program as of Jan 1, 2014 12:01am.

  15. Ha-ha.

  16. Don’t try to understand them
    Just rope, throw, and brand ’em.

  17. Thank you! I could not have rested till I found out what on earth this was about. You saved me some time.

  18. These are domesticated ducks, yes? That young man is a duck-herder? Now there’s something to put on your resume.

  19. Boy, I’d hate to be a street cleaner after that parade.

  20. Ok, I just gotta say it. What the duck was that???

  21. Is that the program tied in to the Bunway Airlines credit card?

  22. ramona austerman says:

    Thank you

    Hey watch what you say about us flibbertygibbets. Although strictly speaking we are flibbertigibbets and the first one was a male associate of Wayland the Smith. I got this nick when I looked up the old spelling of a family name (Lafferty) and found if was Fhlaithbheartaigh, my friends pronounced it flibb..etc.

  24. Talk about organic farming! Pest control AND fertilizer, all in one!

  26. Laura DragonWench says:

    I realize I’ll be stating the obvious here, but them’s a lotta ducks! And the way they just kept on coming, like out of some kind of multidimensional, rice paddy-version of a clown car. Goodness!

    You could never do that with cats. Just sayin’.
