    Mine ended up in the blowhole of a huge whale, killing it. 😞

    I don't think I do this right, the duck stays right where I leave it. What else should I do?

    Wait for the tide to go out, for 6 hours, and then place it gently in the water. 😉

    Hear that knock at your door? It's the police. It's futile to even think of escape they have the place surrounded so you might as well just open the door and go quietly. If you need a "good" lawyer call me at 555-5556 ext 55. I live in the eastern time zone of North America so if you are not near that zone please be advised that my hours of operation are between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Otherwise I'll be on the golf course. Just leave a message.

    Thanks, I'll keep you in mind if the rubber ducky homicide squad show up and take me downtown for questioning. I have friends down at city hall so I might be able to call in a few favors, but you never know... they usually all hide behind their desks whenever they get wind of a rubber ducky murder investigation.

    There's a lot of public sympathy for rubber duckies where I live, but really, I'm not kidding you... it was an accident!

    "It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly, a rubber ducky appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up."

    Oh, you mean it killed the whale!

    How could that kill a whale? If a rubber duck got stuck in my blow hole all I'd have to do is blow. You know how to blow, don't you? You just pucker up and whistle*

    If you're feeling relief then it very well might have been you.
