    I’d tell y’all my (Memphis) Peabody Ducks story, but it’s a non-anecdote and I can’t recall all of it anyways.

    Need someone to make origami hats from 1, 5 and 10 dollar bills. Must be able to do small sizes, like duck heads.

    Need model train set. Must fit ducks.

    I’m John Ducks, of the Memphis Peabody Ducks.

    Update on my previous duck hat maker wanted ad: you provide your own dollars.

    Mighty Memphis Soul Stew Peabody Ducks.

    It’s possible someone thought to ask this already, but wouldn’t squirrels be better?

    MGS: Would squirrels be better than ducks for a party game or in a stew, are you asking?

    Securing ducks v. squirrels? Four legs v. two? Flapping v. writhing? Bill v. tiny sharp teeth? Given the conceivable injury landscape, which would be cuter? Show v. wound?

    Show versus injury. Always a conundrum.

    Comrade Duck.

  13. Rick Neece on February 26th, 2013 at 6:09 pm

    Is that really a duck? Or a tern?

  14. Michael Smith on February 26th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    The fact is, you’re going to have trouble getting either to sit on a model train. That said, squirrels are crazy and will try anything once. Plus, they look better in caps.

    Besides, no one likes squirrels all that much, so it would be less tragic if the miniature train derails.

    I want to go to a party that has people instead of animals. Just once.

  16. Sheila Ryan on February 26th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    I dunno about squirrels looking better in caps. Duck bills sorta “play off” the bills of caps. If the ducks are wearing caps.

    Rick? What’s a tern?

  18. rick neece on February 27th, 2013 at 7:52 am

    Ain’t a tern like a duck-like thing that ain’t a duck?

  19. Casey Cichowicz on February 27th, 2013 at 10:24 am

    Terns of endearment.
