What Kind of Fool Am I

Two ducks are always better than one.

Thank you Lydia

I guess working hard and playing along with a challenge that wasn't even supposed to happen isn't meant to be fun at all. IMO a DQ for this is NOT in the spirit of DPC.
Disqualification Details
Extra Rules: Failure to follow the challenge description is grounds for DQ. Challenge description specified exactly one each of the five items, and you had TWO duckies :-(

Thank you for your PM responding to my question, Lynn.

I still don't know why you're thanking me for anything, though... So confused...

I hate all DQs... *sigh*

I'm so glad I'm not on the SC.

Your post in the forum the other day about one vs plural makes a lot more sense now.

Just like an April fool's joke, you can take this DQ as a bad thing, or you can laugh. I say laugh, because it's absurd. The whole challenge was a joke, and unfortunately you were tricked by the description. I've always secretly pined for a DQ myself. DQs get soooo many more views! You already have almost double what the 10th place has.

How cute!

I wonder, though... what SC will do about your not having "exactly one" of each item on the list... *sigh*
