Ken becomes the fourth member of the Order of the Honorary Duck, joining Pixy Misa of Ambient Irony, Don of The Kawaii Menace, and Jeff Lawson of Winter Garden.
While Ken has in the past sent me various things he's picked up in Japan (a mini-Godzilla and some beautiful Clannad pencil-boards), nothing could have prepared me for the package that awaited me at the Duck U. Bookstore when I came in this morning.
While I was somewhat apprehensive about opening this rather large package, seeing how he has a history of sending exploding kiwi after me, I nevertheless bravely sundered the packing tape. Inside the box?
Yes, he sent me a copy of Duck! Duck! Go!, the rubber duckie racing game, as well as a huge number of other duckies. This is very close to the largest number of ducks to be added to my collection at one time, and may have pushed my flock over the 300-duck mark.
He's also amused me with various online chats, deluged me with completely inappropriate pictures, and helped me deal with whatever problem I've had. He's also offered to be a tour guide in Japan when I go... because of which fact, I've decided that I WILL go.
In other words, he's been a friend, even though I've never actually met him.
For all of these reasons, Ken Talton richly deserves induction into The Order of the Honorary Duck.
Way to go, Ken!

It's surprising how many people get those two mixed up. The B-24 Liberator had 4 engines; the B-25 Mitchell had two.
I noticed one time that the Wikipedia writeup for the B-25 Mitchell claimed that it was the plane that appeared in the movie "Catch 22", which actually featured Liberators.
