Last week, I described how the pair of swans living on Boston's Public Garden's Lagoon* have a predilection for attacking ducklings. Last night, the swans were at it again. But last night, this took a very sinister turn: I think Juliet got a duckling. I could have counted wrong, but I think the Lagoon now has n - 1 ducklings. No idea if this was Juliet I or Juliet II (LESBIAN SWANZ!! AAAIIEEE!!).
Oh, the... avianity?!?
*Why the pond is called a lagoon when it is not a lagoon has always puzzled me.
Something must have caused a pathological hatred of ducks in those swans. Hmmm...do any of the Boston newspapers run "Mallard Fillmore"?

The Boston Globe used to, when I was living in the area. I don't know if they still do.
