Is the second one from Soap Opera? The "Devil Ducks?"

No photos of spent tear gas cannisters from the other night's revelry?

Alex: Yes. They have lots of specialized rubber duckies. Very cute!

Demon Ducky, you're the one; You make the eternal lake of fire lots of fun; Demon Ducky I'm eternally fond of you.

Thanks for separating the ducks from the goats, Prof.!

Troy, I think the triplets rerquired for "the eternal lake of fire" are too many. How about just "hellfire"?

Everyone is commenting on the ducks.

Can't anyone see the broken hearts on those devilish teddy bears??

They're in pain. They're suffering. They're possessed maybe!

What would be really cool is if that shop (which looks like an Oxfam or Salvation Army one) had Dr. Phil's dressed as the Devil.

Cool, and apposite.

Cheers,
Victoria

Yeah the lyric "lake of fire" (I was going for "bath time" liquid thing) is a bit awkward. Though it does have an Alanis Morrissette too many words for the music quality.

You want rubber duckies? I got your rubber ducks right here, lady.

And here, my post on the Princess Diana exhibit we had at the Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Art earlier this year.

No, they didn't exhibit her rubber ducky, but rather, just before the exit, there was the perfunctory Diana-souvenirs you could purchase.

Well I couldn't afford a damn thing, except suddenly, at the corner of my eye, I saw a marvellous item.

A yellow rubber duck wearing a tiara, with long eyelashes just like the late Princess.

It was 7 bucks, and I HAD to buy it! So I did.

Unfortunately, I must not have saved the pic on my HD, but it looks not dissimilar to this pic.

Although that looks more like the Prince Charles version if you ask me.

Ever since Ernie bathed on Sesame Street with 'em, I have loved ducks.

Cheers,
Victoria

There is a Christ metaphor in those teddy bears. The stigmata on the hands and feet and the pierced or "borken" heart.... Hmmmm... perhaps not. That or angry and sad crucified squirrels.
