A man walked into a quiet bar
He carried three ducks, one in each hand and one under his left arm.
He placed them one beside the other upon the bar.
He had a few drinks and chatted with the bartender.
The bartender was experienced and had learned not to ask people about the animals that they bring into the

They chatted for about another 30 minutes before the man with the ducks had to go to the restroom.
He left the ducks there on the bar.

"How's your day been, Huey?"
"Great. Lovely day. Had a ball. Been in and out of puddles all
day! What else could a duck want?" commented the duck.
"Oh. That's nice," said the bartender. Then he said to the second
duck, "Hi. And what's your name?"
"Dewey," came the answer from duck number two.
"So how's your day been, Dewey?" he asked.
"Great. Lovely day. I had a ball too! Been in and out of puddles
all day myself. If I had the chance another day I would do the
same again!" said the duck in reply.
So the bartender turned to the third duck and said, "So, you must
"No," growls the third duck, "my name is Puddles. And don't even
ask what kind of day I've had!"
