SeaChanger ducks really
Officers are on the prowl for the newest "Most
Wanted Duck" in the country -- Disco Duck -- last
seen in the vicinity of a SeaChanger trade show, where the
disco club-friendly rich colors of SeaChanger Studio Dichroics
made their debut. The suspect is described as yellow, made
of rubber, about three inches tall and fewer than seven ounces
with a retro '70s orange Afro and wearing a blue collared
shirt. He's known to enjoy karaoke and often carries
a microphone (he's quite dexterous for a duck).
have already apprehended two of Disco Duck's fellow flocking
fugitives: the notorious Scuba Duck, a USITT favorite most
often associated with the introduction of the soft-edged illumination
SeaChanger Wash, and Pirate Duck, original member of the gang
whose jaunty blue beret bears the jarringly unmistakable mark
of the dastardly skull and bones.
SeaChanger Ducks are a crafty
lot, always recruiting new members and staying one step
(duck-paddle?) ahead of the authorities. The good news is,
they tend to hang around at SeaChanger trade shows and are
typically pretty easy to nab. Just be aware that the best hunting
happens at the beginning of the show, as everyone wants to
get their hands on SeaChanger Ducks.
Word on the street is,
the newest duck on the pond is migrating its way to Las
Vegas (the desert could be a challenge) for LDI 2008. Stay
tuned for details.
