Lord Love a Duck

Every year for 13 years now Vanessa the duck flies into a courtyard surrounded by walls and windows at an elementary school in Hartland Michigan to lay her eggs. Unfortunately when her ducklings hatch - since they can’t fly yet - there’s no way out. So Vanessa walks to the school door, quacks loudly till somebody opens it and then leads her brood on a march through the school halls and out another door that leads to a pond - and the good life that all ducks have a right to.

Such a trusting soul; Vanessa must be a democrat. Who else would make the same bad life decision for the past 13 years in a row and still expect that somebody will step up to make sure everything works out all right? On the other hand, once you’ve come to rely on the kindness of strangers to compensate for all your bad decisions, why change?

Lord Love a Duck! Maybe the educators could turn this annual display of lack of common sense into a common core lesson.


Probably not though. I’m guessing Vanessa’s inability to select a more appropriate nesting habitat is not her fault butt rather due to gender confusion…or global warming. Either way, try to remember that Duck Lives Matter.
