I am a Finished Object machine! Here’s another:
There’s something inherently funny about ducks. I don’t know why, but it’s true. Groucho Marx knew it, my Sasquatch knows it: he often dances around the house chanting “I’m dancing like a duck, I’m dancing like a duck”, and once when his brother suggested he may be crazy, he replied with “yeah, crazy like a duck!” (that one just about killed me), and I know it too. Years ago, Tech Support and I were on a long drive, which was getting progressively weirder as we hit more and more kamikaze birdlife. We were starting to have Hitchcock flashbacks, right up until a duck flew into the windscreen – we laughed about that the rest of the drive.
