mea culpa quacka [May. 7th, 2003|06:23 pm]
The American Caliban
This is interesting. After eyeteeth's comment and a cursory web search I realized I totally had my head in my feathers. The Howard the Duck comic always did use that phrase, and I had totally forgotten this. So my "neat thing" was the other way around, a tribute to HtD from another Ohioan: the lyrics to the Pretenders' "Precious".

Howard the Duck and Mr. Stress both stayed
Trapped in a world that they never made

So I'm an idiot. But it's still a good song.

it's a pretty dumb line

As I've never made a world, I too am similarly trapped.

You'd think they were trying to say the duck was Galactus or something.

Re: it's a pretty dumb line

No, no, that would be "Trapped in a world he was about to eat." :-)

But, hey, you're *our* idiot. And that means something, dammit. :-)
