Sunday in the Park with KAZ

The only reason people used visit our local park was to feed the ducks or meet their dealer.

Then 'they' decided to spend some money and we got :


and a 'Teen area'

You can't feed the ducks now because they are an *eco system*. Unfortunately, nobody told the ducks. This coot (top left) looks well pissed off about it. He used to get poppadums and chapatis as well as Mother's Pride.

We've also got charts telling us about the birds.

On closer inspection I don't think they got it quite right do you?

Unless that duck's called Arthur and his girlfriend is Hylda Baker.

This Egyptian Goose was trying to get to know the Canadians -

And a good day was had by all

I'm not convinced that piece of art wasn't just a graffittied, burnt out car...oh no, that was the idea wasn't it?

So can you at least feed the teens? How else are you supposed to dispose of Mother's Pride? It seems a strange way to spend an afternoon, going to the park and not taking stale bread.

Mother's Pride is bad for ducks anyway. Probably bad for teens too...a shame they can't have the chapatis and poppadums though (the ducks, that is).

Anyway, we humans have (had?) an ecosystem too but many still eat Mother's Pride....why are there no signs up outside Tescos?

Mullard Ducks indeed.... no hope, is there?

Wonderful! I think we need a lard guide sign:
Mullard : Lugubrious Cockernee with Desperate Dan Jawline
Wellard : Canine Cockernee and Schmiechel oppo
Nil lard : Kaz’s Ice cream prefereance
Dullard : John Prescott… does what it says on the tin

Maybe they are drunken ducks i.e. mullered? Or they could be the Afghan Mullah variety especially flown in to help with community cohesion.

You would think the Council would have someone capable of proof reading!

We must have had 'arf a mullard last time the family went out for a Chinese meal.

I'm still mulling over the Mullards.

Does that Canada Goose have a passport?

Thanks for explaining that.
The teens will no doubt be some mother's pride.

Do they still ,make Mother's Pride?
I haven't seen it recently but then I haven't looked.
*This week I 'ave been mostly eating Ciabbatta*.
Quelle poseur!

You have exceeded even your own sky high standards of commenting.
Can't resist joining in.

Bollard - target practice for motor vehicles driving at speed.
Pollard - Excruciatingly annoying northern character in long forgotten camp comedy

Your imagination is awesome.

Community cohesion? You could definitely get a top job with Manchester council and do the proof reading as well.

As a non meat eater mine's half a Muller please.
Or - make that a pint.

It hasn't even been to Yorkshire.

I see an ice cream van, but assume you didn't have one on this occasion...

Most of my neighbours still wear Mullards,
oh my achy breaky heart!

We have a Teen Area, what the hell is that about? We need Teen Repellant Areas! You can't have Teens mingling beside small children near the Duck Pond..all you hear is

Quack F*ck Quack F*ck Quack F*ck!

Nope - of course not.
But I would quite like an ice cream van - they always look so kitsch and cheerful.

Hello H.E.
I hear that in some Australian parks they play Barry Manilow or Celine Dion over the loudspeakers to repel teens.
And it works.

You don't see many *s over at mj's place do you?

10:48 pm  
Blogger stitchwort said...

Barry M and Celine D would repel most adults, too.

Still trying desperately to think of something funny about Mullards, but Arthur was it, really, wasn't he?

"stock dove hard to get close to". Is there some sort of counselling centre at the park? Perhaps cognitive therapy might help?

I love people who spot spelling mistakes. Especially if they correct them themselves.

9:42 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

I think Arthur and Hylda Baker would be most successful at scaring off the adults.

P.S. Don't worry about funny - we've enough comedians round here already.

Counselling in the park - I'd be first in the queue.

I also thought this was odd. Are there many birds you can 'get close to'?

I was dying to get my red pen out again.

there is absolutely nothing I can add to this!! I'm laughing so much it hurts and I think this is the first time in over two years of blogging that I've experienced writer's block

apart from to say, what a great place*

Brilliant post Kaz ;-)

Can't believe they've banned feeding the ducks in the park?

It's political quackness gone made I tell you.

I am proud and humbled to be the first to reduce you to writer's block.
I know it won't last.

Hello Spitting Mad:
They'll probably ban holding hands next or (after this post) taking photographs.
