What’s So Funny, Ya Birdbrain?

Someone or something is tickling the funny bone of this fine feathered friend. If they HAVE a funny bone in there, of course.

UPDATE: This fellow’s name is “Polo.” See more of MyFirstAvailableName’s videos here. Thanks to DP&F.

Not In Our Park You Don’t!

Gladys, dear, I think these people have no bread crumbs. Oh, the calamity.
Tsk, tsk. Gabby, we can’t even harass them in our own park anymore without getting cheated. I think it’s scandalous.
Let’s give them an eye full, Gladys.
That’s the spirit, Gabby. Harrumph!

“OK – this came about from a walk in a local park, Heather Farm, in Walnut Creek, California. Anyway, they were quite disgruntled that we had no treats for them, and gave us an eye full.” -Barb P. Photo by Paul P.

“My friend Raeann H. and her daughter Makenzie S. took these pictures of bebeh boids hatchingks at their house. It’s pretty amazing and these bebehs are the very definishe of ugly/cute at the same time. The photos are dated to show the progression. Enjoy!  P.S. – Note for nuffers: no boids were harmed in the process of taking these photos. The Mom observed carefully but did not dive bomb photographers or reject bebehs.” Your faithful sender inner, Erin C.

Tales of the Duck Patrol

We were twenty klicks behind the lines, scouting an enemy bread depot. The air was thick with the stench of silence; every crackling blade of grass felt like an explosion in our own private hell. “Sarge, think we’ll get a medal for this?” asked Beakman. “Right now, kid,” I replied, “I’d settle for some pumpernickel.”

Good Morning, Class…

“All right, class, just a few notes before I turn things over to your professor. Due to last week’s food fight, fish sticks will no longer be served in the cafeteria. Also, this week’s pep rally has been rescheduled to Thursday. Finally, please join me in giving a big Antarctica U welcome to our new exchange student…”

ANAHEIM, CA – Dozens of decorated ducks tried their luck in Disneyland’s charity Rubber Duck Race through the canal of “it’s a small world.” On a tragic note, several ducks tried to drown themselves after enduring the ride’s iconic theme song.
