Radio Flyer

This duck is an AM/FM Radio. The on/off/volume is controlled by twisting his head. AM/FM is selected by toggling his wings. Twisting his tail changes channels. The duck is waterproof and floats. Thus he is a bath tub duck/radio bobbing duck for the Rod's Duck Farm cleansing station.
He won't fit in a coffee cup but provides hot tunes in a soup bowl. Sometimes he plays a feathery favorite - "Down Town".
Quack, Quack!

The Ex-Mrs Bulletholes thought I could be cntrolled in the same fashion. I am neither Waterproof or Bulletproof. I did learn to how and when to Duck. For other fabuous duckological merchandise, see my recent description of you in "we are the wizards"...

Wow! I didn't know celebriducks was still going so strong! And the magic of Oz.
It has been said that there are two factors of situational stress:
1. Control over the situation.
2. Predictability of the outcome.
When you are riding with a drunk driver, you might feel stress because you don't know whether you will die or be maimed ... low predictability, low control.
Oftentimes loved ones feel stressed. Probably the reason we love them is that they seem fragile, easily stressed. Sometimes they try to reduce their level of stress by gaining control and predictability .... over whatever is nearby. That lonesome duck thing might be a pretty good idea!
Quack, Quack!
