OOOOH! ZING!

There was an article that was just let out, that Oregon State University found mammoth bones by the end zone.  I was enthused, and was listening to what they'd found, which also included a camel of some sort, as well as a few other critters of long ago.

I was musing to Husband that there should have been an ancient beaver* there, too.

No, a duck fossil, says he.

DUCK**?  Why, pray tell, would you say duck, it's OSU's end zone...

He looked up with a straight face, and stated, "The article said, that was where the animals came to die, right?"

Whoa, I didn't even think Husband cared about team sports!

* Oregon State University mascot is a beaver, however, I still think the new one looks more like a rat, so the link goes to a cute toy, as well, to make up for it...

** University of Oregon, the civil war rivals, have a duck as a mascot (sorry, couldn't find a just picture link).  If you want to impress someone with your vast knowledge, the duck's name is Puddles, and he was drawn by a Disney artist.

That and a few bucks will get you a woo woo coffee someplace...

  1. LOL!
    Very cool about the bones! The reaction is far different from the way it would have been 100 years ago. Are we getting too used to the wonders that everyone is so ho-hum about it?
    Good post!

  2. I read this story, but we're Duck fans in this household---Oregon University at Eugene.
