Break with tradition

So Colin and I are both off this week – or rather, Colin is off, and I’m putting a lot of effort into my procrastination.
So far, our time has been spent riding the rails – Colin’s fascination with the Metro has not waned since last year, although now he’s added the Underground City to his list of must-have experiences. So we’ve walked the Underground City, we’ve shopped, we’ve been to the cinema (The Incredibles), and today – as per Colin’s request – we’re going to the museum of fine arts.
Colin says that he’s been once, but he didn’t get to see everything.
We also lunched with Dina and Bill, and Colin has already extracted a promise from me that we’ll do that again next year. I assume he wants to relive…
The Duck Jokes
1. A duck walks into a pharmacy and asks the pharmacist “Do you have any duck food?” The pharmacist says “No, sorry, no duck food.” The next day, the duck comes back, and asks “Do you have any duck food?” The pharmacist says “No, as I said yesterday, no duck food.” The next day, the duck comes back again, and asks “Do you have any duck food?” The pharmacist says “No, we have no duck food. I’m getting tired of you asking me for duck food everyday – if you do it again, I’ll nail your feet to the floor, buddy.” The next day, the duck comes back, and asks “Do you have any nails?” The pharmacist says “No, we don’t carry nails.” So the duck asks “Do you have any duck food?”
2. Different duck, different pharmacy – the ducks says to the pharmacist “Do you have any Chapstick?” The pharmacist says yes, so the duck says “Great – put it on my bill.”
3. A man walks into a doctor’s office. The man has a large duck perched on his head. The doctor says “What seems to be the problem, sir?” The duck says “Well, there’s a guy on my ass.”
4. (not a duck joke, but the one that made Colin laugh loudest) Two English muffins are in a toaster oven. The first muffin says “Wow, it’s hot in here.” The second muffin says “Oh my God! A talking muffin!”
Yes, I’d say the education of my son proceeds apace.

  1. What a great week! Colin must be looking forward to the new Laval extension. Of course taking it will mean going out to Laval…yeesh.

  2. Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven. When they get there, St. Peter says, “We only have one rule here in heaven. Don’t step on the ducks!” So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one. Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw. St. Peter chains them together and says, “Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man.” The next day, the second woman accidentally steps on a duck, and along comes St. Peter, who doesn’t miss a thing, and with him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman. The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very careful where she steps. She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on. St. Peter chains them together without saying a word. The woman remarks, “I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?” The guy says, “I don’t know about you, but I stepped on a duck!”
