Crisis of Competence

A new crisis was upon us now that the world’s supply of reason had been utterly spent. And there was only one man brilliant enough to save us. I arrived in Doctor Manfred’s office to discuss the issue, only to find him kneeling on a desk chair, careening through the office like madman. An assistant was standing in the center of the room, spanking the doctor with a duck whenever he chanced to pass by.

“Doctor!” I cried. “What do we do? What do we do?”

“You idiot!” he yelled. “Can’t you see we’re trying everything we can think of?”

I can say without a doubt that I have never before read the phrase "spanking [...] with a duck". That alone is precious.

Agreed. My pineal gland (not nearly as dirty as it sounds ... it's in the brain) throbs appreciatively.

May duckspanking come to mind whenever you are at wits end.

Come now. We've all been duck spanking before. It's a perfectly natural behavior that we all experience as a part of growing up. Particularly if you live close to ponds.

When I wrote it, I loved it.

About a day after I'd posted it here? I hated it.

Then I heard the dribble and I loved it again. Thanks Tbaker!

It was remarkably hard to find a good duck quack. I still didn't. I wanted the equivalent of cleaning the cat like a rug in Quest for the Holy Grail.
Fun anyway. And remember people, if there are stories you want read, post a link in the Fan Cast thread under "Podcasts".
