Cycling Claremont: State Farm is There

Did you know that Aflac first used a duck in their advertisements? The darned thing got too cocky, all full if itself, being a big television star and all, that they cut the contract in two, and gave him a swift kick out the door. The rest, they say, is history. The goose took over, and now, when ever anyone says Aflac, either to themselves or out loud, they say it with a croaky voice.

Anywho, this evening, when I came around the corner at the end of this street, that duck there, was standing in the middle of the street staring intently at (or staring down) the State Farm vehicle. It was an almost perfect Aflac moment which needed to be photo-recorded. Unfortunately, in the process, I scared the duck out of his trance, and he waddled out of the way.
