The One-legged Duck (Serve the Community)

Today the radio posted a question/McDonalds advertisement:
Does a one-legged duck swim in circles?
... and on Martin Luther King day ....
When will the the Ducks With Disabilities Act be enforced to provide liberty and justice for ALL ducks.
Today they almost have justice. Schools are closed in Northwest Arkansas due to the ice storm. Even so, below the ice on the frozen-over ponds is water. So it is not JUST ICE. Part of the pond is water, part of it is duck.
When they say "notice has been served" does that mean "not ice has been served" ????? Does that mean "duck has been served"?
If there was an "eat what you kill" policy in the military, who would be served?
Quack, Quack!!!

Wow! Your post is so profound that I am not able to understand it! All I know is that Starrett makes an ADA tape measure but no DDA tape measure. It seems we still have a long way to go!

The first book that I can remember as a child was called "The duck on a Truck"... I believe the premise was that a trucks brakes went out and the driver had a duck that got out on the hood and Quacked their way to safety.
I gogled it up but didn't see it.. but their is a guy named jez alborough you should check out...
especially a book called "Fix-it Duck"... I bet I know what thats about!!!

Steve,
That Jez Alborough has been thinking ducks AND getting published. "The Duck on a Truck"
I'll have to keep my eye open. That's a cute story, quacking to safety. Thanks!
Maybe Donald will have another birthday bash or something. Holler when you're going to be up this way.
Quack, Quack!

Steve,
Good answers on the Duck News exam.
Maybe duxelle is a multi-pun:
Duck's hell
Duck sell
Duck's L (elevated railway)
I bet there are more!
Quack, Quack!!

Thanks Rod...as long as I'm ruunning around leaving Crash Test Dummy lyrics everywhere, I have one for you!


How Does a Duck Know
How does a duck know what direction south is?
And how to tell his wife from all the other ducks?
You can cut a chicken's head off and it will keep on running and twitching

When everything seems planned out, when everything seems nicely planned out
Well the human race will come and smack your face

How come all my body parts so nicely fit together?
All my organs doing their jobs, no help from me!
A person pulls a spider's leg out to watch it keep on moving and twitching

When everything seems planned out, when everything seems nicely planned out
Well the human race will come and smack your face
Satan lives here: on grain and earth, rain and air

How come I just smoke and smoke and smoke and curse every butt I spit out?
All night long I grind my teeth and I wake up when I cough
You can put me in an iron lung and I will keep on breathing and twitching

When everything seems planned out, when everything seems nicely planned out
Well the human race will come and smack your face
You might be there, gonna keep your head

hmmmmm... Is the human race .....
is it racing to the redlight?
I think maybe it is like destruction derby. The race only smacks you if you're in the race. That's why more people sit in the bleachers. And blondes have more fun because everybody sits in the bleachers.
Cigarettes put a protective coating of tar on your lungs. All the germs and bacteria and stuff gets caught up in the tar. Then you cough up the germ/bacteria laden tar once in a while. Other people have no way to expell the disease-causing microbes. Their bodies become infested and their brains become infected. THEY think "it must be cigarettes".
If cigarettes will kill you, just think what cigaretttes will do to helpless little microbes trapped within your alveoli.
Quack, Quack!!
