Duck, Duck, Goose

“Duck!”

“That’s not a duck; it’s a goose!”

It wasn’t a duck; it was a goose.

“Tee hee. G-string…”


When I asked twitter for a prompt of two nouns and a verb, @RvLeshrac suggested the words “Duck”, “duck”, and “goose”.

A Sudden and Decisive Revolution

Thousands of ducks overwhelmed the streets of North Crundria. The city was in an uproar.

“Ducks!?” cried the frightened, confused masses. “But… Aren’t they extinct?!”

Thicke ducked.

Edgelow fired his sniper rifle.

“Got him,” Edgelow said. “He was coming up behind you.”
