Happy 83rd Birthday Donald Duck! I wish I could say I am a fan, but I'm not. You annoyed me long before people started using you in memes about the POTUS. And now the sight of you gives me the shakes. There are so many awesome duck characters more worthy of esteem than you. So, to put my sarcastic twist on our Friday Frivolity host theme, here are 8 fictional ducks I like better than Donald Duck.
Most people, at least where I live, are more familiar with Rick Dees playing music as a radio personality instead of performing. But, way back in 1976 he brought us Disco Duck.
Howard the Duck. 1980's campiness at it's best. Oh Lea, that hair! (I am grateful to have been a teen before social media so there is no evidence I actually owned/used a crimping iron).
The AFLAC duck. So many great commercials to choose from, but this foodie had to go with Guy!
Yakky Doodle, cuteness overload.
Ming Ming. This is Sewious! And now I am craving celery.
Darkwing Duck (and Gosalyn and Launchpad and Morgana and Bushroot and the entire crew, etc.) Let's Get Dangerous!
Duck Dodgers in the 24th and ½ century! Tom Jones singing the theme song (and lending his voice to one of the funniest episodes) was just enough to nudge out DW for the #2 spot.
And finally the winner of my favorite fictional duck is....
Rubber Ducky, you're the one!

I have always wondered how fashion bloggers manage to take their photos. I know a few have another person take them, but Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots explains how she takes them herself.
