Downtown Duck


This mallard has been living downtown for a while. I just "met" him this evening on my way to a movie. Traffic had stopped for him while he walked across the street.

He's adorable! I'm glad that traffic is aware of him. We have had a few duck and geese traffic fatalities around here, so they have put up some signs to try and get people to slow down.

Maybe he had a little shopping to do!

That is so funny! What in the world is he doing "downtown"?

Louis la Vache said...

Jacob - he was telling the driver of the SUV to get quacking....

VP said...

He's got a job there? Tired of commuting?

Jacob said...

Oh, Louis! Only a mad cow would come up with something like that. You could be right though.

But, sadly, no. I asked the duck what he thought about your comment and he stood erect and fairly shouted, "The man's a quackpot!"

and he accuses both Louis and Jacob of practicing quackery without a license!

Louis la Vache said...

Jacob - of that, there is no doubt! (Thus saith «Louis'» Editor...)

I'm not sure why I'm laughing, but I am! :)
