Duck is tasty.

First Speckles, now this.

The once was a mother of ducks,
Who had not an ounce of luck,
They walked over a sewer,
Soon there was one fewer,
And all she could do was say..."Quack"*!

*feel free to substitute a better rhyming word of your choice.

I figure he'd laugh just as much as we did but got to see it in action.

1 little
2 little
3 little ducklings

Good karma going his way!

"i did my best to save them,"...After taking the very funny pictures, of course..."and that's all i could have done." Short of putting down the camera and shooing the ducks away from the grate, but that would have been less funny.

Lucky ducky.

Canadian goslings would've been funnier

Why does mom lead them over the grates anyway? I guess it's the old survivalof the fittest thing. In nature, if you can't negotiate the grates, you fall down the sewer.

Fell free to use that on your next Hallmark card.

Jeff, once they hop down into the street to cross they can't hop up the other side...they are too small. So they walk back and forth and inevitably encounter a storm drain. Where I work it happens so often we put chicken wire under the storm drains in April and take it out in August. It's less work than fishing for ducklings every day.

It took him "a while" to coax the ducklings to come to him but the first photo is separated from the last one by 27 seconds? He needs to get his story straight.

Have you hugged a wastewater treatment professional today? If you have, I suggest you go shower if said professional was on duty (har!) at the time.

Aside from the fact that the picture looks very photoshopped, a big giveaway is that a picture was taken of the subject before the interesting action occurred. A little suspicious, dontcha think?

Yeah, I didn't think the pictures were of a real incident in the first place. It's funny, but it's not real.

Definitely Photoshopped...if you take a look at the third picture, the ducklings all look alike...besides, what kind of ducklings stand in a straight line like that?
