Duck Dodgers in the 21st Century
Okay, maybe it's a cheesy title, but we recently came across a story where a duck came crashing right down someone's chimney and into their living room.
In a home in England back in 2012, the uncovered chimney had become home to the duck, and one chilly evening when the family started a fire in the fireplace, the duck lost it's balance and came tumbling right into the open flame and then into the room. The singed duck then panicked, sending soot all over the furniture and floor. The duck was okay, but the soot and mess ended up causing several hundred pounds of damage.
