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.

But it turns out, the show may have told us right from the beginning.

Yes, if you've been on the internet, you know that everybody, even Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the 8th and final season of Game Of Thrones.

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

Alright ladies and gentlemen, time for a pop quiz.

The first question is, what do the lyrics...

"And I am telling you..."
"Once there was a way to get back homeward"
"To a deluxe apartment in the sky"

...all have in common?

If you guessed Jennifer Hudson slaying them, you'd be correct!

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
