I love photography, and every so often I buy new toys for my camera. And when I do, I usually use one of my ducks as a model. They make great models because they don’t move or have any diva demands Anyway-I thought I’d share this starry picture that came from one of my new photography toys
Spider Duck, Spider Duck, does whatever a Spider Duck does……
I got this little fella today at Michaels (arts and crafts store) for a buck! There are quite a few styles of ducks there if you take a look around!
I love stand up comedy almost as much as I love ducks. Mitch Hedberg was one of the greatest comedians of our time (in my opinion). Here’s a little joke of his that always makes me laugh….and it’s about ducks, of course….
Once I saw a duck walking down the street so I went into Subway and ordered two pieces of bread, and they informed me that they could not do that…So the woman asked me what I wanted on the sandwich and I said, “I do not care, it is for a duck,” and she said, “oh then it’s free.” I was not aware that ducks eat for free at Subway. So I said, “give me a chicken fajita sub, but don’t worry about ringing it up, it is for a duck.”
USA Duck loves stars and stripes. He can usually be heard around town patriotically quacking, “USA! USA! USA!” But sometimes he can be caught patriotically quacking other things…..for example:
USA Duck: “NYC! NYC! NYC!”
USA Duck: “MTA! MTA! MTA!”
USA Duck: “MICKEY MOUSE! MICKEY MOUSE! MICKEY MOUSE!”
He’s such a lively little fella! You can get yourself one of these USA Ducks (if you live in the NYC area) at Maxiga on 1204 Lexington Ave between 81st & 82nd Streets. You can also order the duck from Just ducks.org or Duckshop.de.
Wild Bill: “This subway station ain’t big enough for the both of us.”
Aliens in the subway? Good thing Wild Bill is around to take care of those villainous aliens!
At this point, the little traveling duck (known as Explorer Duck) has traveled around the US, to Europe, and back. Duck collectors everywhere have been hosting her….showing her around their great cities. This time Explorer Duck visits Portland AKA the “city of roses.” Not only does she get a tour of the city, but she also gets featured on the popular web comic (based on Portland) “Quacked Panes.” If you have never read any of the duck comics on Quacked Panes, go there. You will LOL and sometimes even FOYSL (fall out of your seat laughing). Here are a couple of the duck comics from Quacked Panes which feature Explorer Duck:

This spiffy little fella is the bee’s knees…..His name is Duke Duck, but they call him “Dapper Don.”
Dapper Don: “I’m meeting a hotsy-totsy dame under the moon tonite.”
Bessie: “Let’s head out to a swanky little speakeasy and cut a rug!”
Dapper Don: “Sounds like a swell idea to me. Let’s blow this joint, sweetheart.”
In case you haven’t been following Duckshow religiously, I recently added a duck from Opal London-Quackers Collectables to my own collection. I went “quackers” when I first saw the duck (called Ducktannia) because it is so unique. I immediately bought one for my collection. Today I decided to take Ducktannia out for a few photo ops around NYC. I think she quite enjoyed herself. Just see for yourself:
Ducktannia in Rockefeller Center.
Ducktannia: “Or as I like to call it…..Duck-efeller Center.”
Radio City Music Hall.
Ducktannia: “Perhaps they will give me my own show when they hear my whimsical squeak!”
What’s a day in NYC without an obligatory fountain shot?
Ducktannia: “I’m not going for a swim today, darling. I just had my curly coif styled.”
You can get a Ducktannia for your collection, too! Just click here.
