why a duck?

I have finnaly found the book "why a duck?" and I will get it next week!
I know we are more marxists in here, so had to say it and let neil illustrate the book, so its a little python anyway...

EDIT: today I got it. Im sorry that I look like a sweaty pink elephant in the pictures, but Im so tired and its so hot here its impossible to have clothes on.
anyway; I was expecting a book with back-tsage stories and bloopers, what I got was sort of the script from the movies with pictures.
but I still really like it, its very funny. and (as you can see) some of the pics are so fab I almost want to frame them and hang up them on my wall

thewastelandr: It's a wonderful book, Thina! My mom has a very old copy, probably back from the Neil days! We used to look at it as kids and laugh over Groucho's mustache! Love those boys!

yeah, I got it today! I edited my post so you can see how my copy looks and my general thoughts of it.
happy to have it! :)

Holly: let us know how you enjoyed the book when you get it, I'm curious. I also wonder if there is a copy of this picture in color anywhere, that does not look like water in the pool.

I will. :)
and I think there is water in the pool, you can see what I think is tree-tops reflecting in it

you're right, it just looks weird to me. And on an odd thought....I've always wanted to fill a small pool with jell-o

Lady and Laird Candermine: I adore the marx bros .. thanks Thina!
