Got any grapes?

I think this exact same thing happened to me this morning. Except it wasn't raining. And I was on the highway. And there weren't any ducks. Other than that, it's like deja vu!

Of course, the 'Got any Grapes?' comment refers to the joke where bartender threatens to nail the ducks beak to the bar. It's funny, because the duck got nailed...see?

This particular kill happens to be my favorite - just because it reminds me of the time I neutralized a guinea hen. My only lamentation is that I didn't have a camera. Well, that and I didn't aquire both my targets - he had a friend.

It is indeed unfortunate that you were unable to get both at once. However, the message delivered to the second hen is clear. As Nick Burns, your company's computer guy would say, "MOVE!"

Yes, perhaps more effective than two dead guinea hens is one dead guinea hen, and another a living testament to the assasination. Perhaps somewhere there is a now an entire civiliation of guinea hens better educated on the dangers of road life.

Well, I'm afraid that's where you have gone wrong. See, guinea hens aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer. If they were stupid enough to be playing on OUR roads in the first place, I doubt hen #2 would be smart enough to spread the message. He's probably still standing on the side of the road, scratching his head in confusion.
