Michael Bedard "Sit­ting Duck"

Wed­nes­day 15 Au­gust 2007 00:40

I re­mem­bered see­ing the sit­ting duck on a poster in the 80's and only now af­ter a sim­ple Google search I found out it is part of a whole col­lec­tion. And there's a whole sto­ry be­hind it that ex­plains the sit­ting duck cul­ture, which is not as I re­me­bered it at first. The point is the ex­pres­sion on the duck's face, which is a bit ob­scured by the sun­glass­es: Is it scared, sur­prised or an­noyed? I as­sumed it's an­noyed, like the duck is a snob sit­ting around the pool on some trop­i­cal is­land just get­ting an­noyed about the fact some­one had the nerve to start a rev­o­lu­tion be­fore he had fin­ished his long-drink. Be­cause that is what I would do... But I wouldn't be naked, I'd be wear­ing Tom­my Ba­hama's.

(I'll have to fig­ure out how I can hack the ker­nel to show these in­stead of Tux­es when my com­put­er starts...)

$150 on eBay?
