Sock Ruh Tease: [www.jumbojoke.com image 500x382]


My friend has a teenage daughter, and her and her friends were constantly making duck lips, thinking it was cute or sexy or whatever.   And no matter what my friend and his wife did the girls kept on making duck faces.  So, I told them to say "Aflac!" every time the saw them doing it.  And it worked!  They have given up making stupid duck faces.

Too bad it wasn't outside a hunting store.

AverageAmericanGuy: Dying brand Ace Hardware hires duck actor to boost publicity of store


Actually they do pretty well out here in flyover country since they merged with Handyman.  I can be in and out of Ace in less time than it takes to navigate the parking lot at Home Despot.

In Iowa City Ace Hardware has several locations in the area, all owned by the same person.  This is also in the "artsy fartsy" part of town.  I live a few blocks away and have been there a few times.  The employees are very knowledgeable about what they do.

Tasty, tasty duck.

Is there a Subway nearby?  Ducks eat for free at Subway.

Wouldn't the duck be more comfortable inside?

I really doubt these people are doing everything they can to make her comfortable.
 
2013-05-27 09:42:58 PM
I want a new duck...
 
2013-05-27 09:44:09 PM
Smart duck.

I used to watch the Disney ducks have their ducklings every spring. They'd be lucky to keep one or two after the rats, possums, cats and crows got through with them.

The duck will be nice and comfortable inside a chicken inside of a turkey.

The only meat I eat nowadays is poultry, with the exception of three kinds of sea creatures (squid, octopi and eels), and I have yet to try a duck that doesn't taste like turkey.

Cute duck. Ducklings are oh-so-cute.

Ducks are evil, one attacked me and bit my shoe as a child.

I don't know what others will say when the ducks come, but I know what I'll say when the ducks come. Perhaps I'll say "Ducks, wonderful ducks" or just "ducks, ducks ducks..."

Isn't all of Iowa City artsy fartsy? I helped open the Coralville Gordmans, and let me tell you the amount of women coming in to buy crap in the home department so they could "make it pretty" was insane.

Also, you misspelled "Complaints" in your profile.

Thank you for the spell check.  I think I'll leave it.  Iowa City is a mix of artsy fartsy and regular Iowans.  It gets even more amusing in the country where you find the fringe artsy fartsy people and down to earth farmers.

Very true. Iowa City has that unique dichotomy of all that plus college students.

Ducks do nest in some interesting places.  I've seen a few nest by the sidewalk of a busy road.

We can't get inpatients here. Some kind of fungus or something. Killed off all the flowers. Lucky duck. I plant them every year.

So...so I got drunk instead. So that's nice.

Has anyone heard any more about Yang Qing, the sometimes-carnivorous panda from China??? He used to eat just bamboo until one day he accidentally bonked his head....... from then on he had an occaisional taste for fowl. I guess he's not in the news much anymore since he keeps a low profile. He just........

Eats. Ducks. Leaves.
