  2. They are so cute and they look like they like their new names. Good work John. Any more pigs in your future?

  3. I would like to thank the John's flock of readers for their support of my name selections.....

    And the ducks for my inspiration..

    And the restaurant that served me polenta the other day....

    And the grandmother, from whom I was inspired, who 50 years ago had the wacky-ness and gumption to name her donkey Semolina (a cousin of Polenta)after the inner, granular, starchy endosperm of wheat (not yet ground into flour). .......I would like to go on but the music is drowning me out......

  7. Tough Shit?

    You tease 321 people to offer up suggestions for naming two ducks that would look better roasted on my plate covered with sauce and tell 320 of them, 'Tough Shit!'?

    Brutal John. Not just brutal, cruel...

  10. Carol and Polenta - wise choice I would say John. especially as you would therefore be quite justified in eating Polenta in the future - not sure about Carol though.

  11. Duckin' 'ell, what a duckin' way to let your readers know who duckin' well won :p

    Duck's off back to lurking.

  12. That duck 'Carol' looks nothing flipping like me, John...but the beak kind of does...and the eyes...

  14. Oh bugger!
    What am I supposed to do with my beautifully polished acceptance speech now...?

  15. Hurrumph! What can you expect from someone who drives a vehicle where the exhaust pipe is the most valuable part of it!

    Carol and Polenta ..... really!

    btw, did you know that duck tastes nice and tender when deep fried in duck fat?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I quite approve of you choices!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wait...does this mean, if the other 320 send you their addresses, you'll post off a box of extra-strength doggie doo to each of them? ('Cause I know you've got the inventory.)

    Next time I need to name a pet, I'm definitely asking for your help.

  18. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh gawd, you crack me up again and again and again.

  19. Grilled breast of polenta with soy and honey sauce...sounds a little wrong, somehow. Great names, suitably eccentric as befits your menagerie. Congrats to the winnahs!

  20. It's hard to believe I missed this contest altogether. Surely my duckish expertise would have weighed heavily in my favor.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Carol and Polenta!? How the heck are you going to remember that? Doesn't roll off the lips like.......settle down Jim, you know nothing of these things.
    This was fun John!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, thanks for the laugh...tough shit!!! It's sad that I haven't laughed until 7:20 PM Central Time.

    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. John, your eloquence never ceases to make me laugh my ass off!

  24. That's democracy for you. You vote, you may be in the majority, you get shit all.

    Carol is plain awful. Hope your neighbours are out of earshot when you call "Polenta" back to the flock.

  25. and so they have names lucky girls.

    We were out on a boat yesterday, later watching Joe & the boy from next door try to coil the hosepipe was a marvel. I called them, "Bodge it and F**! it"
    This is what my friend calls her husband & son when they are doing DIY !

  26. Congrats to the winners from a disgruntled loser!! (just kidding!)

  27. I'm sure it's just prejudice towards the rest of the world's population. Congrats to the ducks whose lives are spared until Mr. foxy Loxy get 'em.
