I've Heard Duck's Fart Before!

Gerald the Duck was regretting his Vindaloos from the night before.
Oh such a quaint saying (has anyone else heard this?) that basically means, yes right of course you did/will do etc. Or to put it another way, can you believe what you are hearing? I am referring in fact to my Blog Giveaway picked way back on the 15th. Lets face it the two UK guys should have received theirs by now!  Problem is I have yet to post them!!! they should go out tomorrow (That's that duck again), the problem really stems from two things. Being arsed enough to package them up (really just a padded envelope) but the other reason is any costs for the blogs has to come out of my wargames neutral stash which took that hammering at the weekend. Well I was expecting some money flowing in from selling some figures but the money has yet to land leaving me in a bit of a twist. No matter I will get them out and short term minus as I have a few other sales that will pad me out fairly well anyway and that should be in some time soon (oh the life of the unemployable). So you can stop looking in the mail, well until Monday anyway.

Close up of the damage by the farting duck (yes I know it's a drake).

Johny Cash possibly was inspired by a similar scene.
I made my wife take the picture a few weeks ago whilst we were out walking at Cromford. Well it amused me anyway. Cath was far happier taking shots like the one below, bless.

  1. It's only since we got a duck that I realised how much crap they produce. Never heard it fart, though :)

  4. I'm a country bumkin so I knew it but it still took Cath to remind me (read she looked over my shoulder, snorted and made a comment about duck being wrong) What can I say ;-)

  6. "they all taste the same"

    But only one lays eggs, and therefore provides a steady source of justification for the cost of its upkeep ;)
