Fibbing Friday — I Don’t Give a Duck

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as host for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Di’s turn to host and here are her questions.

1. Where did the phrase ‘Out for a duck’ originate?

When I was a young man still living at  home with my parents, I used to use that phrase when I was going out on a date. My parents either knew what I really meant or they were afraid to ask.

2. What is Duck a l’orange?

It’s the brand name of Donald Trump’s makeup.

3. Why do we yell ‘DUCK’ when something is likely to hit us?

Because if we yelled “PIG,” we might get arrested.

OK, enough of the duck questions, Geraldine is getting nervous.
4. When was the first iPhone released?

It was released the year after the hPhone and a year before the jPhone.

5. What is an interrobang?

It’s when you go ‘out for a duck’ during the intermission of the play.

6. What is, or was, a Troodon?

It was the brand name of the first tampon brought to market.

7. Who invented the Little Black Dress?

A funeral director came up with the idea for something little girls could wear to funerals.

8. What is TikTok?

It’s the sound my clock incessantly makes when I’m suffering from insomnia.

9. Who invented the frying pan?

The Friar of Never Never Land from the story of Peter Pan.

10. What color is most toilet paper in France?

    I laughed a lot at your clever answers! You are very creative! My favorites: Trump’s makeup and the iPhone.

    Does anybody make colored toilet paper any more? The last time I could get colored (pink) tissues/Kleenex was about two years ago. I didn’t know, when I bought the boxes, that the tissues inside weren’t white. But I liked them. So, I returned to the same drug store to try and get more. There have been no more. (But I remember Fara Faucet, or someone like that, crusading for all white.)

      I have wondered the same thing myself. Used to be a specific Northern Colors package if I recall correctly. I suppose there was a problem with excess dyes and pollution maybe.

        Yes, I think pollution was the issue with such tissue 😏 — plus, some people have direct sensitivities to the dyes. Additionally, it’s easier to only stock white when it’s the favorite anyway.
