The Duck Lands a Role in Church Manger Scene

The Duck flew into Minneapolis for the holidays and wisely chose Martha Bentley to be her hostess. It meant that the Canard would spend Christmas in the fine company of DASH, CAPPY AND DEMI, but even more important, earn a featured role in the Champlin United Methodist Church's manger scene and thereby be much too important to be served as the main course for Christmas dinner. Below are photos of the Duck's cattle dog hosts, and along the bottom a scenic tour of the Duck's holiday. She was accompanied at the church by DEMI.

In what is believed to be a first for the Shriek's Canard Profiles, a human subject -- Barb Allee of Duluth -- has allowed herself to be photographed in a Chicken ensemble, much to the delight of her Duck Dog, DUKE.

This photo was taken on the beach not far from the Duluth landmark Lift Bridge that you see in the background. (Much to Duke's dismay, several dogs passing by during the fashion photo shoot were heard to chuckle quite loudly!)

Buddy, Duck sing duet
big smile
arena
BUDDY Lizakowski, who lives in Grand Forks, North Dakota, really warmed up to the duck and showed her all the sights of the frozen north. He taught her how to sing, the proper gait for running on snow, and the most exciting venue of all, the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks. As you can see in the video, Buddy also taught her how to pee like a boy. (Click on the photos to see larger versions.)

KU'A AND THE DUCK

The Duck and Ku'a bonded, and the Canard made every effort to stay in Nebraska, even with winter on the way.

She employed several methods.



She tried to claim the basement as her own. The cat did not
comply. The cat's lazyboy failed to provide adequate cover.

The cat dander made her sneeze and pass out anyway.

 


Ku'a attempted to commiserate, but became distressed with pity and appealed to the
photographer to put an end to things. Also see photo below.

 


Duck attempted the age-old ploy of drinking herself into
oblivion, in which state she could not travel. It is clear she
enjoyed the wine (below) more than the gin & tonic.
She had a lovely time but smelled funny afterwards.

 


She recovered from bender with Ku'a's ministrations on the lawn chair.

 


She masqueraded as an opossum in need of rehabilitation. She
forgot that opossums have long, naked tails and that she did not. You
will notice that the Real Thing below her were not impressed.

 


She then begged for a position as an administrative assistant that could provide ever-present wisdom and softness.

 


Ku'a was not ready to be retired.

 


She sought to mingle with the locals, but gargoyle and lizard gave her away.

Last, she decided to wear black.
Big, black stainless steel.

 

And finally, Ku'as photo shoot, seemingly a struggle to find just the right balance between being striking drop-dead gorgeous poses, maintaining movie-star aloof and wondering exactly how one goes about gracefully ripping a duck off your back with the camera watching.
