Could it be his "girlfriend" wanted him to be more respectable, like the other ducks? Ducky-whipped, I'd say.

Aww :( I hope it didn't hurt him too much. At least he and Alice can spend more time together now.

I hope it wasn't painful...thanks for always posting news on Stumpy. This little duck always makes my day for some reason :)

Aww, poor Stumpy! At least he still has Alice. :)

Could it be that the author wasn't sure if a "special" duckie with three paddlers could have a "girlfriend"?

Or maybe putting things "in quotes" helps the writer feel better?

"girlfiend" because what do you call a female duck, especially of the romantic relationship kind? Or maybe they just put quotations around the word because whoever wrote the article was quoting the farmer. Hi ho.

Also, I got the same error message sk8dork got.

i thought it was compulsary to have quotation marks around "girlfriend"

Freedom rules! And now he and Alice can trip the light fantastic! Go Stumpy!

"girlfriend" is always in quotes now, thanks to Paul Wolfowitz. I don't know if it was Strunk or White or a lil' o' both that forced the change but it's yet one more reason that Wolfowitz is a tool. The fallout of his nepotism is far reaching, indeed.

I love duckies as much as you Ze, but that's just f'd up. Poor duckie.
