duck me, good duck!
This is designed to be funny and fun, but really, methinks it will be incredibly annoying…
My Pringles came with a free “Duck Whistle,” which looks like two plastic pringles stuck together with a mouthpiece. Blow through it and it makes an ear-piercing duck shriek. I’ve only done it a few times and I can already see angry parents snatching it away from over-tartrazined kids before stomping on it in crazed anger. It’s a bit like those party whistles that come in Christmas crackers, the ones that you pray will never find itself in the hands of the person sitting next to you.
When you put it in your mouth, I guess you look like a duck, except with a pringle beak. Wait, let me test that theory…
And Pringles’ point to all this is?
“Duckie Friends! Everyone enjoy!!” “Send in your ‘Duck Bill’ photos and become part of a huge ‘Duck Bill’-photo mural.”
How this will work, I’m not sure because the campaign doesn’t start until Sept. 26. By which time, if enough people hoot on these whistles, I am sure a number of serial pringle-duck killers will be born.
