August 17, 2007: Abandoned ducks live in tea cup



Axlrosen finds another, this time from the Mail. Thse two ducks were washed out to the open sea, paddling away and sure to drown, when they were rescued by a passing canoeist.

So tiny, they are happy with the little section of water they are now given... especially when compared to the ocean they were pulled from.




Cloud  Friday Aug 17 01:52 PM

Duck soup!



freshnesschronic  Friday Aug 17 01:54 PM

Cloud beat me to the punchline.
If we added some coffee it'd be DucksNuts!
Wait coffee has beans in it, not nuts, damn.



Spexxvet  Friday Aug 17 02:02 PM

Chock full of ducks is the heavenly coffee.....



Griff  Friday Aug 17 02:41 PM

LOL!



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Aug 17 02:47 PM

Finally an IOtD we can drink. I wonder if Mom duck was fish bait?



Griff  Friday Aug 17 02:48 PM

The spiders got her.



odie number seven  Friday Aug 17 03:16 PM

Quakers for their soup, anyone?



Shawnee123  Friday Aug 17 03:25 PM

Roast Duckling Recipe with Champagne and Orange Juice

* 1 frozen duckling, thawed
* 2 oranges, peeled
* salt and pepper
* 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
* 3 tablespoons champagne
* 3 egg yolks
* 2 cups heavy cream
* salt and pepper
* orange segments for garnish

Wash duck and pat dry inside and out. Stuff with peeled oranges. Prick skin all over with fork. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Place on rack in roasting pan. Roast in a preheated 350° oven for 30 to 35 minutes per pound.

Remove and cut into 4 sections; discard orange pulp. Arrange on a hot serving platter and keep warm while preparing sauce.

Place cream and egg yolks in a shallow pan; heat gently. Add orange juice and champagne a little at a time. Add a little salt to taste. Allow sauce to come to a simmer; continue to heat for 15 seconds. Do not boil. Pour sauce over duck and garnish with fresh orange sections.
Serves 2.



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Aug 17 03:49 PM

You can grow the oranges in the time it will take these quackers to be ready for that recipe.

And now a trip to Duckin' Donuts.

Gravdigr  Friday Aug 17 06:15 PM

Take two ducks and call me in the morning...


Tea? Yes, please. One duck or two?



Cloud  Friday Aug 17 06:30 PM

I'd rather just take the champagne and orange juice. Mimosas, anyone?



DanaC  Friday Aug 17 06:36 PM

Sorry to go all girly, but look at their little beaks!! Ohmigod how cute are they?



TheMercenary  Friday Aug 17 08:05 PM

Foie gras ?



DanaC  Friday Aug 17 09:21 PM

I'm sorry Merc, did you not hear me say, very clearly look at their little beaks!! Ohmigod how cute are they?

You could at least pause and admire the cuteness of the little beaks....

... as you nibble on their cute little livers.


DanaC  Friday Aug 17 09:25 PM

well at least you made the attempt...



HungLikeJesus  Friday Aug 17 09:38 PM

That's not a regular tea cup. That's like the cup from the opening scene of "So I married an Axe Murder."



minnmirman  Friday Aug 17 09:57 PM

i was under the impression that once thawed, ducklings were no longer frozen.....

I must now re-examine my entire life and thought process.....first step in the champagne i suppose



CharlieG  Saturday Aug 18 05:33 AM

And everything turned out just ducky



DanaC  Saturday Aug 18 05:44 AM

Ouch....that's puntastic.


Would this be an appropriate time to remind people of the cute little beaks?

Nobody tells me my beak is cute.


DanaC  Saturday Aug 18 11:18 AM

is it little?



Elspode  Saturday Aug 18 12:30 PM

Shush, woman. You don't want him suffering from beak envy, do you?

Actually.....if you arent being told your beak is cute, thats a good thing.

Well, in my world anyways.

Heh heh heh


manephelien  Sunday Aug 19 08:49 AM

Awww! Those look too cute to eat.



morie  Sunday Aug 19 10:07 AM

who's talking rubbish about duck soup and foie gras? those ducks are babies and have no flesh. the duck-tape bandit has more meat on him. admittedly, he is uglier but hey, just close your eyes like you do with foie gras and pretend you don't really know where it came from.



DanaC  Sunday Aug 19 11:21 AM

Thankyou manephelien! *feels vindicated*



Weird Harold  Sunday Aug 19 07:48 PM

What a strange turn of events for the duct tape bandit. As you can all tell, he isn't the brightest bulb, his life sucked. He thought things were finally turning around, when he came up with a super name, "the duct tape bandit". What a great name, he thought, all the other petty criminals will be so jealous. I'll get invited to all the parties, women will want me, men will want to be me. It's even better than the wet bandits, from Home Alone.

So the big heist didn't go so well, and I got beat with an ugly stick, at least I've got a title. I'm the duct tape bandit. I'll be famous. And he was, his story was spread all over the Internet, until it landed here, and a cannibal read about him, and well the rest is really gross....



Scriveyn  Wednesday Aug 22 08:36 AM

"... a few days later" or "from cup to pot"



Tomtheman5  Wednesday Aug 22 05:39 PM

I will never grow tired of how much everyone here likes to eat the POTD (PS - Thanks for the recipe, smurf), but I'd like to point out the stark difference between this thread and the thread on the actual link (here)

Them: "Thank you Chris Murray for saving these, the most precious of all God's beautiful little creatures!"
Us: "I'm thinking BBQ would taste best"

DanaC, I suppose you'd get a much more gratifying response over there...



DanaC  Wednesday Aug 22 06:04 PM

Nope we'd get the same response. People can be so callous when confronted with cute little beaks.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Aug 22 06:37 PM

There's not much meat there, but the really fun part is boiling them.

yeah, I wonder if they're like frogs -- you raise the temp slowly and they won't jump out until it's too late.


xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Aug 22 06:58 PM

I read just recently that's a myth.

Ah, here it is.



Lucy  Friday Aug 31 04:42 PM
