There's a group of about 30 or so people I exchange emails with--my "duckies".  I thought you might like to join us.  I act as sort of a clearing house for interesting, funny and/or stupid stuff. Either people send me things which I forward, removing their name & address (& replacing it with a thank you) or I find cartoons, jokes, videos or whatever that I think others might like.  I send things BCC (when I don't screw up), so others won't get your address.

I usually send out from 1-6 emails a day, depending on what comes in.  If you send me something (& I hope you do) & I forward it, you WILL get it back, because I'd rather click on "duckies" once than click on 30+ individual names.

Some people already have more email than they can handle, so I will understand if you say no, thanks.  My feelings will NOT be hurt.  Please let me know if you're interested.  From what I can gather about your sense of humor (you read my posts) you'll fit right in!!

If you're interested send me an email (fishducky@budandfran.com) & let me know.

Following is a sample of December emailings:

The judge frowned at the tired robber and said, “then you admit breaking into the same store on three successive nights?” ”Yes, your honor.”

“And why was that?” “Because my wife wanted a dress.”

The judge check with his records, “But it says here you broke in three nights in a row!”

“Yes sir. She made me exchange it two times.”
Every year on their wedding anniversary my boss, Woody, and his wife celebrated by staying at the same resort hotel. On their 25th anniversary they booked their usual room. But when the hotel's bell captain escorted them upstairs, they were in for a big surprise. "There must be some mistake," Woody said. "This looks like the bridal suite." 

"It's okay," the bell captain reassured him. "If I put you in the ballroom, that doesn't mean you have to dance."
A man is complaining to a friend: “I had it all, money, a beautiful house, a nice car, a great motorcycle, the love of a beautiful woman. Then it was all gone!”

“What happened?” asks the friend.

“My wife found out!” replied the man.
Rachel decides to do some shopping at the mall and manages to persuade her husband Moishe to join her. After 2 hours of looking around one women's clothes store after another, Rachel suddenly realizes that Moishe is no longer with her. So she calls him on his cell phone to see 'what's what.'

"Nu? So where are you?" she angrily asks Moishe. "I thought we were shopping together."

"Don't get broyges, darling," replies Moishe. "Do you remember the jewelry shop by the escalator in the middle of the mall, the one we spent time in last year and where we saw a lovely gold necklace for you but which was just a little bit too expensive for us to buy and where I said I would get it for you one day?"

"Yes, of course I do, darling" replies Rachel excitedly. "Why do you ask?"

"Well I'm in the cafe next door to that jewelry store eating an ice cream."

And sometimes, something important:

I just signed the petition "Pass the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for America’s Veterans (SAV) Act" on Change.org. It's important. Will you sign it too? Here's the link:


This has nothing to do with this post.
I  just thought it was funny!!

The average person laughs 15 times a day.  More if they're "duckies"----fishducky



  1. Petition signed. Any suicide which can be prevented is a good thing.
    And sympathise (so much) with Santa's bladder issues.
    Big smiles, as always. Thank you.

  2. Cherdo would be a good ducky.


    1. She'd be welcome, but she has to ask me herself!!

  3. Prostate Santa got me giggling. Probably because I am an old woman and we have our own bladder problems.

  4. I'm a ducky too, but I haven't had much access to my computer over the holidays, so I'm sure I missed a lot of fun stuff. Happy New Year!

  5. I always enjoy receiving e-mails from you. They brighten my day.

  6. I hardly ever get anything funny in my email anymore. Everyone who used to send me funny stuff now facebooks it. I always love a good laugh, so add me please! eseckman(at)ymail(dot)com.

  7. I'm proud to be a (giggling) ducky! :) :)

  8. That is a great idea;
    I wish that I could join but I do not have too much computer time any more. May be when I get an IPAD.

  9. Make me DUCKtastic, Fran! I sent my private email to your in my response to your email.

  10. Oh, my...not sure I have time for any more emails, but thanks for the invitation. If I find something to share I'll send it to you. I so enjoy your jokes and cartoons on your blog!

    1. I need you to send your email address to me at fishducky@budandfran.com.

  11. I love that last list of resolutions.
    I've been forgetting to CC when i send your funnies to my friends, I really must start doing that again.

    1. I HAD to put that in. Send my stuff to everyone--spread the silliness!!


Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
