Adventures Of Duane, The Bathroom Rubber Duck In The Drain


Even when the water was cold, because he didn’t have any cash, Duane the bathroom duck, loved a really good splash. It didn’t matter if he wasn’t dirty, he took a dive every night, at seven thirty. Soon, he was sliding towards the plughole … slipping down the drain faster than a Dover sole. Duane, the bathroom duck, never once got stuck ! In fact, once in the bath, he caught a fish with a fishing hook ! whilst he was removing all his muck. Duane asked the spider who had travelled up the drain, too, to scrub his black back, which was mucky, it’s true. When Duane looked again, it was dirty again ! Soon, sloppy webbed footprints walked along the bathroom floor towards the door … Duane’s friend, Ruby, was another rubber duck who also forgot to duck ! Before she knew it, she was hit on the head, by a rather soggy flannel, thrown at Duane instead.
