Ranty Friday — I AM NOT A POTATO

Got that?






Nor am I a butternut squash

On a regular basis I get messages like this:


I am a duck

I have a big red bill

A bill in the middle of my face.   A big red bill.

Got that?  A duck.  I am a duck with a pinata mask

Ranty Friday today is setting the record straight.  Once and for all.

    Do I admit it – I may have thought you were a potato, dressed up like a duck with a funky mask on!! #oops

  2. says

    Noooo ladies, don’t do it, say you always knew she was a duck, that you don’t know what she’s talking about, about a potato! You don’t want to see the potato rage. I promise!!!

    I couldn’t see properly on my tiny iphone screen all those years ago we started following on Twitter, so I looked at it on my computer. It was quite obviously a duck with a pinata. I have never seen a potato with and eye mask or a red nose, not even on Red Nose Day. Great post.

    Oop, at a cursory glacé I too thought you were a dressed up potato *ducks in shame* *and then ducks again for using such an atrocious pun this early in the morning*

    Damn! I thought you were a banana!!!

    No, I knew you were a Rubber Duckie really. You’re lucky I didn’t steal you at Brit Mums as Izzy needs some new Rubber Ducks for the bath and I couldn’t stretch to the Harrods ones I saw on Sunday! 😉 xxx

    Better watch out.

    “Sorry I haven’t a clue!” resumes on Radio 4 and contains an answer to a question ;

    “How do you stop large bills coming through your letter-box?”

    Mrs T R Ellis [North Wales] says: “Shoot the ducks”.
