Artist's Description

Taken today in my kitchen 2pm on 5.10.2010

Well you think you have given your Rubber Duck all the advice it needs to be at home on your own when you are at work. Like do not answer the phone or open the door to strangers, if cooking make sure you turn the ring off when you have finished and how to get straight out the house if the fire alarm goes off.

But what did i find on returning home at 2pm this afternoon from work.
Mr Duck trying to warm himself on the toaster as he felt cold. He had got his friend MR Manbug to plug the toaster in and his new girlfriend then jumped on the handle to switch the toaster on.

I dashed across the kitchen and lifted him off before he did real damage to himself like and melting as his bottom felt quiet warm to the touch.

So I have sat the 3 of them down and explained the danger of sitting on a toaster and playing with eletricial equipment they should not be touching and if they are cold plenty snuggly laprugs to snuggle under in the lounge.

They have all been banned from using any eletricial equipment and poor MR duck had to sit on some frozen peas to cool his bottom down.

Please not Mr Duck was in no real danger this is for a challenge about how our ducks could get into trouble, I was with him at all time ready to lift him off the heat and plunge him into cold water

And then needed cooled off
