Good Way To End A Bad Day

Last night, there were nightmares running through the slumbering head of Wonderduck.  One of them involved a pirate ship, another I remember no details about, and one... well, it was so bad that I don't even like admitting to myself that even had the thing, for fear of bringing the memories of it back.

There was also freezing rain last night, so this morning the Duckmobile looked like a glazed donut, if the glaze was a quarter-inch thick.  Of course I had to scrape that ice off before I could go to work, so I started putting some serious grunt into it.  It turns out the ice wasn't just on the car... and in my quest for leverage, my feet went out from underneath me.  On my way down to the ice-covered asphalt, the passenger-side mirror leaped out and punched me in the side of the head with what I distinctly remember as a rather hollow-sounding "clonk."

So I worked the entire day at Duck U with a sore skull that was full of bad thoughts.  Then I came home and found this:

...and suddenly, the day doesn't seem so bad.

UPDATE:  Then to make it all even better, I got my third FARK greenlight in just over a month with this video: Every so often, one could almost be convinced that there is a God. This is one of those times.

1 I hate to think what kind of nightmare that was. Perhaps it featured something like http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/peking-duck/Detail.aspx ? I hope you didn't hit your head to hard, we like our wonderduck the way you are, thank you very much. No daffy impersonations, please!

2 Okay, that was a proper, classic, delightful Coyote & Road Runner cartoon. Swiftly approved.

3 Bungie cord is exactly the kind of comic prop that Jones would have loved. I agree with GreyDuck; that was excellent.

4 Ah, good ol' Wile E. So predictable, yet so hard to get sick of. Glad to see they've brought him back without messing too much with what works.

Random observation: my mom used to have a LeCar, the primary plus point of which was that its horn sound exactly like the Roadrunner's "Meep! Meep!"
