Lord, Love a 'Tock

"Blimey, 'ere it is, another cold, gloomy 'Tocktober, and I'm frozen straight down to me flippin' giblets!"

"Still, it's not as bad as them cheeky blokes what sneaks up be'inds ya, snappin' pictures of yer bum, now didn't it?"

I predict this post gets a jolly good English nuffin'

Snap-snap, grin-grin, quack-quack, nudge-nudge, say ne'more, Lauren K.

I think perhaps you mean "innit" (isn't it) though I admit it might sometimes sound like "didn't it."

OMG!!1!!I LOVE Big Ben (and yes, I do know that BB is the bell inside the clock tower) and the Parliment Building! One of my favorite buildings in the WHOLE WORLD!!

The ducks are really cute too.

Verizon isn't living up to their catch phrase. I only see three bars in London, instead of five.

He looks like he's about to chat her up. "Hey, Cute Tocks, this your first time in London?"

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 12:51 AM

I wuv duckies. All the ducklings in the canal near my house have grown up now, and they're behaving like complete teenagers.

Shame the council has decided that they are going to build a shopping mall up to the canal and ruin their habitat (and that of the swans and a bunch of moor hens).

Guess what!?

NOMTOM, excellent post.... especially if Duckies are talking like Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins, which I'm sure they are (nearest I'm going to give you to an English 'nuff).

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 03:35 AM

Lucy's mommeh.... "duck butty"...?

("Butty" is working class English for a sandwich)

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 03:37 AM

awww it's wink wink nudge nudge!!! I love that skit :)

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 03:47 AM

I don't blame them for just *looking* at the Thames, it must be freezing.

They're like, 'You first, geeza'.

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 03:54 AM

I can say no more.

@kathyu: Good obscure Beatles reference!!! But wasn't that "Help!"???

-tries not to scrunch up ears in embarrassment- those are all really good english accents honest.

They look like duck tourists to me!

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 04:43 AM

'Snot Beatles, Mite, 'sMonty Poithon.
All ducks are tourists of a sort, at one season or another, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, sigh n'more, eh, eh?

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 04:52 AM

a nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse, eh?

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 04:55 AM

Duck tocks are the cutest tocks ever!!!

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 05:14 AM

I looove this thread. :-)

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 05:15 AM

@mberkie0: "Your wife a goer?? Eh?? Nudge nudge, wink wink?"

(But it is also a line from the movie "Help"...said by Eleanor Bron a couple of times in the movie as she helps Ringo escape being sacrificed.)

My first sight of London was on a train coming into Waterloo station, right across the Thames from the houses of Parliament. Then I walked across Westminster Bridge. It had been raining, and the sun suddenly came out and all those beautiful building were gleaming in the sun. It was unforgettable.
I didn't see any duckies, though, duckie. :(

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 05:46 AM

It's Westminster, darling, not the East End.

Nice Australian accent mberkie0 :)

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 06:15 AM

Owwwwoooooooooooooooooooooo! Duck 'Tocks of London!

I saw a Duck Tock drinkin' a pina colada at Trader Vics...............his hair was perfect.

Owwwwoooooooooooooooooooooo! Duck 'Tocks of London!

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 06:57 AM

Why'd they put a railroad crossing in their crick, there?
Ehhh. Furners.

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 07:02 AM

Ah, made me all nostalgic for my honeymoon in London, though we saw no duckies then. And we walked across Westminster Bridge in the pouring driving rain!

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 07:37 AM

Y'know, maybe this pic wasn't taken in Tocktober, this is pretty much what our whole summer looked like. Have recently taken to laughing openly at all the Aussies & Kiwis in my office that actually chose to move here, and then are surprised at our rubbish weather.
Yay for duck tocks & CO, this is what keeps me from emigrating!

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 07:56 AM

fish eye no miko...

Build a bridge out of 'er!!!

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 07:59 AM

NTMTOM - I must compliment you on your captioning here. I'm often not a fan of your posts... usually too wordy or pictures that are more just funny rather than specifically cute... but you hit the nail on the head this time! Fabulous 'tocks and fabulous accents. Cheers, NTMTOM!

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 08:14 AM

Aw, I love me some duck 'tocks. One of my favorite things is when they dip their heads in to catch something in the water, and leave out nothin' but their 'tocks.

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 08:16 AM

i half expect mrs duck to turn around and have a fag on.

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 08:48 AM

Oi, Oi, Oi!

Sept. 3, 1802

Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth like a garment wear

The beauty of the morning: silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky,
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.

Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!

The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!

-William Wordsworth

English ducks are classier.

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 09:06 AM

I prefer my English nuffins with honey!

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 09:12 AM

With lots of nooks and crannies to hold the melted butt... er....

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 09:44 AM

Your wife, is she into photography? Say no more! A wink's as good as a nudge to a blind bat, y'know...

 |  Oct 16, 2008 at 11:05 AM

Can't believe no one here's young enough (ok, so I'm not young enough either, but my sister is 9 years yougner and used to watch the show all the time, so I remember the theme song...) to have sung,
"Duck tails, wooooo-oooh."

Though I believe it was actually Duck Tales...a Disney production, of course, with the nephews and Scrooge McDuck.
