Don’t ask what I was looking for, but in rummaging through some tagged links, I ended up laughing at this duck:


coming from the LOL Diabetes site. LOLCats ain’t nothing compared to one sporting an insulin pump.

Duck it all.

File this one also in the “there is a web niche for everything” department.

Side note- I am stumped on knowing any way to find the original flickr page from a URL for the static URL version? e.g. how do I proper link to the source for the image at

UPDATE: Bob Cotter had the obvious solution- Google search on the part of the URL that is the photo id— 2400191078 — –the original photo’s flickr page is — Sounds like a Greasemonkey thingie worth doing.

The post "This Duck Does not say “Aflac”…" was originally yanked out of the teeth of a rabid chicken at CogDogBlog ( on January 10, 2009.

    I encountered that same issue in your side note a bit ago, but the solution isn’t at the top of my head. I know there’s a way via the flickrapi. I’ll dig through to see if there’s a quicker way.

    @Patrick Murray-John: Yeah, I figured there was some way. Would be a nice web tool ;-) I know that it would be something like as the first chunk of the static link is the photo id, but need someway to get the “xxxxx” which is the username/id.

    thanks, mon!
