100 THINGS CHALLENGE 016/100



Today´s quote is from P. G. Wodehouse

Wodehouse is a well loved author in my family and a lot of his written lines have made it into the Bjørn´ske language ;)


P G Wodehouse

The quote today is; why are you looking like a dying duck?

We use it when someone looks suspicious and have something to hide.

It comes from the novel; Crime Wave at Blanding’s Castle


The danish version of the book;)

Lord Clarence Emsworth have a lot of trouble with his sister Constance and an airgun:

Lord Emsworth; What if Connie finds out
(About him shooting the Butler with an airgun)


He sits back down in his chair, looking like a dying duck.

Lady Constance enters; What is the matter Clarence?

Lord Emsworth; Matter?


Lady Constance; Why are you looking like a dying duck?

Lord Emsworth; I am not looking like a dying duck!.
