#duckweek This duck can be seen in the North French Miscellany (Add MS 11639 f.517v, 1277-1324).

Looks like a duck to us though. #HebrewProject http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts/FullDisplay.aspx?index=0&ref=Add_MS_11639 …

    The prime minister of Israel is boasting to Israelis how “Fox and Friends” in the US is taking his side in his corruption scandal. We’ve reached a full funhouse mirror stage in US-Israeli political convergence.
