Recently a friend of mine and I went to an antique store. I have an odd sense of humor and found an antique and very beautiful postcard with a couple embracing (kissing actually...which was suggestive for THOSE days). Probably from the '20s. The caption was "Are you a Duck or a Rooster"....what does that mean?
This continues to be an ongoing and inside joke between her and I. If we ask one another a question and don't have an answer we go "I don't know....are you a duck or a rooster?"
I have found this post card so charming, I framed it and it's in my home office where I can look at it and laugh because it is just so nonsensical
It'd take me a minute to tell you this rhyme Of the duck and the rooster that I knew one time A little duck hatched out a day or two late His mama had already gone to the lake
The little red rooster had broken his foot So I put him into a little ole coop The little white duck was left out on his own So I put them together until they were grown
Well the duck thought the rooster was limping and lame The rooster believed that the duck was the same And so they were pals in the coop in the barn They huddled together when it came a storm
Well the weeks they went by and the little guys grew The little duck quacked and the rooster cocky dooed The duck loved the water and the rooster would scratch And neither one knew why they acted like that
Well one day I turned them both free on the farm The rooster went straight to a roost in the barn The little duck went to the lake for a swim They liked different things even though they were friends
Well now you should hear them when they say hello Though it may sound funny I know that it is so I know that is strange but I'll tell you it's true When they talk they go quacky doodle do **********
