There are library tote bags with DUCKS! The plastic bags sport a duck with an umbrella with the slogan "Support Your Library". The appeal is pretty tempting since the library is obviously supporting ducks. But a library is supported by its foundation.
That reminds me of a Red Skelton episode of Gertrude and Eclipse.
(Gertrude and Eclipse were birds, maybe pelicans, that flew around and chatted about things.)
Eclipse: Gertrude, where are we going.
Gertrude: Down to the town square.
Eclipse: The town square? Why?
Gertrude: The mayor is supposed to lay a corner stone. That I gotta see. THAT I gotta see!!!

Summertime is rodeo time.
Rod EO stands for "Rod - Equal Oportunity". No longer are summer sports just for bulls and horses. Now poultry can get in on the action.
This is a Tyson chicken riding a duckbilled platypus. A crowd of ducks makes up the audience. How long will the chicken be able to ride the platypus? Is this a wrestling match? Does the chicken have the platypus pinned down?
Quack, Quack!

More Ducks

The Bass Pro Shop at Branson, Missouri has a mural on the wall. The ceiling has stuffed ducks suspended by fishing line. It looks like a flock of ducks are landing on the pond. There are not ducks in the mural although it looks like some of the ducks are painted on rather than being suspended. Skylights built into the mural & time of day didn't help the photo quality. I don't know who the folks in the foreground are. I got a duck coloring book.
By the way .... if today is your birthday, Happy Birthday.
If it is not your birthday, well ..... it was a 1 in 365 chance .... pretty good odds ....
You could say, it was ALMOST your birthday. In fact, give or take 183 days, it IS your birthday.
Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Quack, Quack!
