Succinctly Yours – Week #26

Using the photo as inspiration, write a story of 140 characters or 140 words.
It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more. The added optional challenge is to use the word of the week in the story. Then post it here.

How much longer will they ignore me Duckie sadly wondered as he sat in the crowded corner. Without playmates, I know I will quack up!

Super duper great take! Here's one more that's sure to have Duckie (and possibly the rest of us, too) quacking up:

QUESTION: How do you make a duck sing?
ANSWER: Put it in the oven till it's Bill Withers. (<--cLiCkY-cLiCkY!)

That is very funny. It's easy to ignore the poor duckie even in the picture. "Quack up"...great punch line. Kids will love it.

There's nothing so annoying as an incessantly quacking duckie.

My husband would love this. Puns always make him quack up.
Good one!
