The Rise of Stumpy

The world of film has a new star - Stumpy. According to today's Telegraph, Stumpy made his TV debut yesterday, at the tender age of 8 weeks old. The thing about Stumpy is that he has 4 legs. Now the number of legs on a duck is of particular interest to us in Wales since Rhodri Morgan famously asked "Does a one legged duck swim in circles" when Jeremy Paxman (I think) asked him if he wanted to be First Minister. Perhaps when Jeremy asks Rhodri if he is going to resign after a catastrophic result on May 3rd, he'll reply by asking "Does a four legged duck swim backwards"

As it happens my wife has gone to see 'Torville and Dean on Ice' in Birmingham tonight. It just struck me that if Stumpy's pond freezes over, he could show off his quadruple toe-loop! Anyway I'm sure that Rhodri will join me in wishing Stumpy a long and successful film career.

I see that Stumpy has made it into the Matt cartoon on the front page of the Telegraph today. I knew he was going to be a star.
