Nothing sadder than a French woman in Barcelona with her duck on the metro (video)

Apparently it’s a woman in Barcelona, on the metro, with her duck.

No clue.

Of course, I want to know what Batman is doing standing next to her.

    She’d be cute if she hadn’t done that to her face

    very cool

    That Duck must be an existentialist and her friend is sad because she just finished Simone de Beauvoir’s novel.

  6. OtterQueen says:

    The duck doesn’t seem distressed at all. It’s making a happy-quack.

    Why is it sad. I think it’s cute. And are they sure she wasn’t speaking Catalan. That can sound a lot like French to those unfamiliar with it — and is more likely. The train announcements were in Catalan.

    You’d probably look kind of sad too if you were zipped up to your neck in a bag and then rubbed to keep quiet. :)

    The duck looks kind of sad too.

    LOL context is everything, pet carrier or grocery bag.

  11. Zorba says:

    LOL! They sort of corralled the duck in one area, with its little pool. It wasn’t really wandering around the whole large yard. Although the dogs were. :-)

  12. karmanot says:

    If Ducks are anything like Geese, I hope they were wearing party Depends. :)

  13. Zorba says:

    It was a party during the afternoon, and the couple who gave the party live on a farm, with several horses and a number of cats. A few people brought their dogs, so I guess it wasn’t too strange that someone would bring their duck, too. ;-)

    What kind of parties do you go to?

  15. Zorba says:

    Maybe she likes her duck really, really fresh and is planning on taking it home, killing it, plucking it, cooking it, and eating it.
    Oh, who the hell knows? I met someone last summer at a party, who brought along their pet duck. (It was an outdoor party.) They brought along their duck’s small plastic swimming pool, too.
