A Real Boston Duck Tour

Now, in the distance on your left, you’ll see the home of one of the most famous ducks in all of history: Pete Webere! When he learned the Canadian Geese were poised to attack, Pete Webere flew 20 miles to warn his fellow Mallards of impending war. What a patriot!

Lovely view of the Hanquack Tower, Victoria M.

Baird Hated Delivering to Pearl’s House.

Have mercy, does your employer know that this is how you’re representing his business?! Is your Mama aware that this is how you’re leaving her house?! No, your Mama’s a nice lady; I bet you pulled the wool over her eyes…and then stole her dang ki-mo-no!

Kids these days, can’t even be bothered to spuce-up before they fly…

The irony is Pearl’s probably dressed in a shower cap, flowered robe, and tennis shoes, Victoria M.

I’ll see your prog-rock zebra finches, and raise you Chicken, who favors the jazz flute; mostly old-school influences like Herbie Mann, with a bit of Ian Anderson…

We’re lovin’ your lovebird, Rachel D.

Um, So What’s in the Finger Sandwiches?

After a simply pitiful day of work which included the stellar highlight of inadvertently tucking her skirt into her thong upon leaving the bathroom, Beatrice needed to relax and ordered a cup of Celestial Seasonings Tension Tamer Tea.

Bark, bark, bark-AWWWK!!

Talk about scrambled: According to the Daily Mail, when her owners saved hen Mabel from the chop, Mabel repaid the favor by keeping their pups warm. Hot dog!

Crank the Enya and Warm the Lava Rocks

Oh Helga, you have the hands of a truck driver with the delicate touch of a hummingbird’s kiss…

How much does Helga charge, because the bird’s got the right idea, Melissa G-L.

Ducky See, Ducky Do

Neill S writes: “My girlfriend and I were at the Phoenix Zoo and saw the funniest thing. We were looking at the flamingos and noticed a duck that was trying his hardest to be one himself! He kept trying to balance on one foot (with a little difficulty.) He also kept checking to make sure he was doing it right.”

Quick, call PETA
