Five Ducks


I saw five ducks on the way to bank the other day. They were in the parking lot of a cheap Chinese restaurant I frequent. I thought, wow, bad place to stop for a break. It was early, nobody was around, I could help these duck. I jumped out of my truck to shoo the ducks away - they attacked me instead. I jumped back into my truck and then tried to run them over. The police officer thought I was nuts, I explained that ducks give me nightmares. The police officer thought I was nuts. I ate Chinese food for dinner.

(No ducks were hurt in the telling of this story)

I would pay to see a picture of you running away from the ducks. Did the cop want to give you a ticket for disturbing the ducks??

ok - so all five duck flew up from the ground at once directly at my face - I turned away an one or two hit my back. I screamed like a little girl and ran for my truck with the little fuckers at my heals. I got in the truck and did try to run them over, but they flew away.

The cop said "I can't give out tickets for being stupid but I wish I could, you are grown man for god's sake, they are little duck. Get a backbone." Of course, he did not realize that ducks are really evil and I was doing the lords work...

I don't know if I feel bad for the ducks or for you- it's a hilarious story. I can imagine the cop laughing at you running away from the ducks. Where is the camera when you need it? Maybe a videocamera strapped to your head (or feet, in this case)...
