Most sent-around pic evar

Oh sorry.

Did your aunt send you this already?

Thought so.

OK, this is the most sent-around-ha-ha-look-at-the-duck photo evar, but did you SEE little Ducksters McTockersons there?



way to go, Elisabeth F. Send this photo to 20 of your friends before three days pass, and you'll receive good luck.

Here is the real story behind the duck photo, thanks to Donncha O.

Please. 'Shopped. No duck would do that for less than a Benjamin.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:28 PM

I admit, I've not seen this.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:33 PM

If it's photoshopped, they did a darn good job of it - the shadows line up and everything. :-P

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:33 PM

Mom should be ashamed teaching her ducklets to pock peck.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:36 PM

I mean Peck Pock. QUackers

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:37 PM

Distract the "mark" with some eye-candy while the con-artist does the job. 'Tis one of the oldest tricks in the business...

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:40 PM

So if I hand someone baby ducklettes, I can get their money easier? *contemplates* Baby ducklettes, money... baby ducklettes, money... Sorry, I gotta keep the ducklettes. *runs away with handful of feather floooof*

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:46 PM

this gives me an idea! where did my cat go.....

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:47 PM

Verrrry cute, but mama must be a vampire duck, because she's not showing up in the mirror (or am I mistaken?)!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:48 PM

Never mind, closer inspection shows it's plexiglass... Drat those fake vampire ducks!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:49 PM

You know--I haven't seen this either.

'tocks up little Quackersons!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:50 PM

I think the duck's feet look a bit, well, dried up? Like it hasn't worn them outside in some time? Ducket tocklets are cute, though.

I see a reflection of the big ducky in the glass.

Ducks these days, with their loud quacking and eating all the time and peckpocketing ... This what happens when ducks are allowed to run amuck!

*tsk tsk*

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:56 PM

I'm pretty sure the momma duck is a fake duck, look at the feet. I think the picture was for some bank.
Anyways here's more info.


 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:56 PM

Kiskasmom: A Vampire duck! Haha quick somebody call Dangermouse! He'll save the gullible lady!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 12:57 PM

oi! a rule six, sevuhn, and thirty-dos!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:03 PM

So thats how he pays the bills when your injured and can work!


 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:04 PM

Darn, Rafel beat me to the Aflac joke! ;-) I was going to say that the AFLAC company must have fallen on hard times, but I like yours better. :-P

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:09 PM

i must live under a rock, cause i have never seen this.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:11 PM

If you look carefully, you can see the duck's reflection. I doubt this was shopped, but it probably was a set up! :)

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:13 PM

Aw, an ad? That's cool. It's still mischievously cute.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:16 PM

I live under that same rock, carmen.

Oh, and yay for "Cute animals" being the number one search on Yahoo today, esp since CO is the first site that pops up.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:31 PM

I don't know why a duck would do this.. In fact I have it on good authority that "Ducks eat for free at Subway"

r.i.p. mitch.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:35 PM

this is funny...

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:36 PM

does it matter if it is fake or not, cute is all that matters!

And that's cute.

I thnk it's funny how everyone is commenting on whether it's a real picture or not, etc.

STAGED! but real.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:43 PM

I too have been living under a rock. muy cute. The little duckling tocks made me happy.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:50 PM


 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:55 PM

OMG, I did get this one from my Aunt! For reals. How did she know? (shifty eyes)

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 01:55 PM

Clearly the duck needs the bucks to buy more fish food.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 02:07 PM

I wish that purse was plaid. Pretend, 'K?

Duck bills plaid purse.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 02:10 PM

The Aflac duck is grifting people right after the marketing folks decided to axe him.

(Though, he's back in business! http://www.tvsquad.com/2007/02/20/aflac-duck-to-quack-no-more/ )

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 02:11 PM

pyrit, you're so clever!

Laurie C
 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 02:12 PM

So I read the article from Bxtn's post about this being staged, and while the mom duck looks rather fake, the baby ducks look surprisingly real. In fact, I choose to believe they ARE real.

Fluffy duck 'tocks!!!!!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 02:21 PM

A big bill peck pocking for big bills.

The snopes site says the ducks were props--NOT live ducks. The adult definitely looks stuffed to me. Enjoy your cute dead ducks! sorry to harsh the cute.

Another Angela
 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 03:14 PM

The decision to harsh the cute was yours.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 03:19 PM

Yah, yah, whatevs.

Laurie C. - (Blush) Thanks, but it was terri-bill.

For jools -
I'm in ur waddle-let, ab-duck-ting yer bills.

Meg - My eyes went straight to the wee 'uns widdle tocks-up too. Well, right after, Oh pretty lady!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 03:31 PM

Is nothing sacred? An ab-duck-tion of dollars througout the city of is Billings, Montana.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 03:32 PM

This is so funny! I like it. Anyway, keep sending in pictures like this.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 03:42 PM

Photos/ads like this, staged or otherwise, give duckers a bad name...we had ducks when I was a kid & our ducks NEVER stole money from us...though I never found the watch my mom gave me...hmmm...

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 03:50 PM

tick tock ducks!

vewy kewt!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 04:06 PM

Is the aflac duck unemployed, that the wife must use the kids as decoys to keep the food dishes full , the rent paid . what does this all mean LOL

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 04:16 PM

A duckie, a pocket
I've opened up ur wallet
Now I'm cleaning out your bills.
Lurvin' my babehs, u got ur thrills.

I'm not a poet
And I know it.


 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 04:23 PM

hee. he's got bills in his bill. Nice double-billing.

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 04:29 PM

You're right; I'm not sorry to harsh the cute when I see something I think is faked or a dead animal. Squeeing over dead stuffed animals seems just a little strange to me.

Another Angela
 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 04:43 PM

What about the woman? She's cute too!

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 05:45 PM

That's true, I remember seeing this picture in my inbox and on Freeple back in November:

 |  Mar 30, 2007 at 05:59 PM

Yes, oaklandcat, it does take a certain abillity.
