My Supernatural encounter with poultry: Is there a Duck whisperer out there?

There's the Virgin Mary's image on a piece of toast,
Fecal matter in the shape of Abraham Lincoln . . . and now we have wax duck-bills . . .


Candles flickering, wax melting and spilling over the side of my silver decorative candle plate until a perfect waxen image gels on my ceramic cook-top stove. No human help is required. This form comes together on its own. A duck bill with a perfect crack down the center that puts me in mind of a smiling Donald Duck! It is true. I've been contacted by the great poultry of the beyond. But what are they trying to tell me? Is there a duck whisperer out there? Anyone who can make contact with dearly departed fowl?

How much do you think this supernatural phenomena will sell on e-bay? ;0D Baby wants a vacation.

I was thinking cow tongue. But duck bill works, too.
Yeah, look for my winning bid :)

C.R. Evers said...

LOL! It could be that too, but if you look closely, there is a perfect crack right where the top and bottom bill would be. So I have to go with "duck"

Great! I'll look for your $10,000 bid on e-bay! ;0)

Good idea Kelly! Maybe I can get a pair of wax feet to match!

LOL Bish! :0D Or maybe I've done gone and quacked up. :0)

when I first saw the picture I thought you were making a Christmas Stocking...so I looked again and I thought...no, that's Pluto's nose made from something...so I decided to read on and find out what it was...I was way off...

Do you take Monopoly money? grin...

Rena said...

I dunno, Christy. It kind of looks like one of those wolves on a Tex Avery cartoon. LOL, but I can see the duck bill too. Good thing it melted on the stove and not on some expensive tablecloth or nice wood.

Angela said...

*sigh* why does the perfect Christmas gift come along AFTER I've finished all my shopping?

LOL!

C.R. Evers said...

LOL Brenda! I'll take Monopoly money only if you send it directly to my Swiss Miss bank account.

You know, Rena, you're right. I didn't think of the wolf angle. hmmmm. . . maybe I need a wolf whisperer.

Angela, That's why being one of those organized early shoppers NEVER pays off! ;0D

I think you'll make a mint on ebay with your duck bill. Go for it ;)
