If You've Never Seen A Duck In A Wheelchair, Today Is Your Lucky Day

Like most of his kind Merlin is a natural on the water.

When it came to life on dry land though he was just a sitting duck.


Merlin the rescue duck was born with a leg deformity that makes it very tough for him to get around. Fortunately for Merlin the people at Goats of Anarchy decided to take him in.

The non-profit group out of Hamptom, New Jersey serves as a rescue, rehab and adoption center for handicapped pets with special needs.

But while the group was familiar with the mobility devices some of their other rescue animals used they had never seen one that would work for a duck.

That's when Walkin' Pets stepped up to lend Merlin a helping flipper.

Wait, what are duck feet called‽

Watch him in action here.

Through their website Walkin' Pets educate owners about caring for disabled pets.

The group also sells wheelchairs and other devices to help disabled pets get around.

But until they heard Merlin's story they hadn't yet created one for a duck, so they decided to take on the project.

After completing their new "Walkin' Wheels Duck Wheelchair" for Merlin the New Hampshire group traveled to GOA in New Jersey to deliver Merlin his new set of custom wheels and see his first steps.

In no time at all Merlin was on his feet and walking around.

The images of Merlin in his new chair were an overload of cuteness.









Many took the time to praise the kind folks who hooked Merlin up and gave him a new lease on life.




Thankfully everything was covered by Merlin's insurance, otherwise it would have had to go on his bill.

There aren't too many things that would make you go, "Man, I'd rather go to hell than be here right now. Hell has demons, torture, fire, and all the ill-prepared pizza they can shove down my throat." However, if you had to choose between these people's predicaments and hell, you'd probably be ready to have pizza for dinner.

You don't need to have children to be successful, but gender roles and societal expectations are awful. Just ask any woman you know: Chances are she's been poked and prodded and interrogated over her decision not to have children.

Dad jokes can feel like the unloved step-sibling of the comical world. "Why would we laugh at something so obvious and stupid?"

Becuase it's hilarious, that's why. Just check out the following entries below and see for yourself.

Reddit user, u/GrotiusandPufendorf, wanted to know what the funniest jokes on the planet are when they asked:

What is your favorite dad joke?

A Murder Of Cows?

Giphy

Dad: Look at that flock of cows over there.

Kids: A HERD of cows.

Dad: Of course I heard of cows, there is a flock of them right over there.

Note: pulled that joke successfully a few times, and my kids even did it to their summer camp instructor.

We Should Probably Leaf

At the park with my girls: "Dad, can we go play?"

Me: "sure, just stay away from those trees over there"

Girls: " umm...ok, why?"

Me: " I don't know...they look a little shady to me."

That Joke Killed!

Why do graveyards have gates?

Because people are dying to get in.

My Dad always told it passing a graveyard.

Stating The Obvious, But Still Hilarious

I had a terrible day yesterday. As I was walking home, a man in a wheelchair stole my camouflage jacket!

As he was wheeling away, I shouted after him, "you can hide but you can't run!"

Then, he turned into a grocery store.

Car Humor. That's All.

That's Always The Point

Not a joke in the traditional sense but, when I'm at a restaurant and the waitress says "Do you wanna box for that?" I always reply with "No, but I'll wrestle you for it."

No one ever gets it but it makes me laugh. And that's the point, right?

I tell dad jokes.

Sometimes he laughs.

Believing in dub stuff as a kid is par for the course. When we're children, we're just tinier humans with less life experience, right? But let's be real- some of the dumb things we believed were actually really, really dumb.

u/ThePolishPA asked: What's the dumbest thing you believed as a child?

They always say, don't meet your heroes. But here's the thing- sometimes your heroes are actually just chill, normal people. This can be refreshing in a world of egos.

Oprah Winfrey may no longer be doling out free cars by the dozens like she did on her long-running day time talk show.

But that doesn't mean her generosity is history.
