Now there’s a man who has all his ducks in a row.

I’m not sure that is the best Wittgenstein translation.
I usually sing it to the tune of good king Wenceslas to remember

At least he doesn’t use corporal punishment. http://amzn.com/0448421658

If somebody yelled at me like that, I might just line up too.


#6

Doing Pavlov proud!

Given that the bare-chested Russian duck herder is herded by a bare-chested Russian bare-chested Russian herder it seems safe to assume that an arbitrarily recursive matryoshka doll of autoparodically hypermasculine command will break out at any moment…

Now I know, the opposite of “like herding cats” is “like herding ducks”.


#9

That’s an army, not a flock. He’s clearly preparing to fight Obama with 50 duck-sized ducks.


#10

Nice flocking program…


#11

You can’t really beat the good old whereof/thereof combi.

Alternate headline:
Ducks aware of human actions that signal feeding time


#13

Just being nit-picky here, but that Russian is not bare-chested. He’s wearing a light coloured vest over long-sleeved black shirt.

On a different thought, I wonder how he is as a baby-sitter … :smiley:

Pretty obviously just a high level ranger with ranks in Leadership.


#15

Can anyone offer some backstory or context? Mainstay farming tasks or peripheral fun?


#16

Interesting how quickly they all hustled to get in line before marching in. I wonder how many ducks he had to ‘make an example of’ before the others learned that quick hustle.


#17

Why not sing it in German?


#18

Fucking ducks. How do they work?


#19

I was checking it out during the morning commute – made the wife jump (not good when she is driving).


#20

I wonder if he can do this with 100 duck sized horses…
