Finally, the time has come! This week, I’ll be giving away two Warren Buffett/Charlie Munger duck sets. The first one will be given away to a lucky commenter. I have a number in my mind. If your comment is that number, you get a set! Couldn’t be easier than that! As for the other set, scroll to the bottom for the details.
We recently completed a whirlwind of the Midwest. My younger sister graduated college and we went to Memphis to attend the ceremony. After that, we headed north to Chicago. Finally, we spent some time in Madison Wisconsin, visiting with more relatives. Warren Duck and Charlie Duck accompanied us on all of our adventures.
Warm up your vocal cords, its time to sing (to the music of Rubber Duckie):
Buffett Duckie, you’re the one,
You make investing so much fun,
Buffett Duckie, I’m awfully fond of you.
Munger Duckie, Warren’s best buddy,
Running Berkshire Hathaway, making loads of money,
Munger Duckie, I’m so proud of you.
OK, enough of that. Just be glad I didn’t actually sing.
Contest time! All you have to do is write a haiku about the ducks. Don’t remember what a haiku is from 4th grade? It’s a very simple poem consisting of 3 lines. The first is 5 syllables, the second is 7 and the third is 5. Here is a really horrible one I came up with off the top of my head:
I really want those fine ducks,
Pick me pick me please.
One more hint: “Warren Buffett duck” and “Charlie Munger duck” are both 5 syllables.
Johnny Moneyseed will be the guest judge* and will pick a winner. You have until end of day Saturday to submit the haiku. Just leave it as a comment. Mrs. 1500 will announce the winner on Monday, 5/27. If you choose to rhyme, be careful with “duck.” This is a family blog!
Also remember that you don’t have to write a haiku. One random commenter also gets a set of ducks.
*I had asked Mr. Moneyseed if he’d be willing to be the guest judge a couple weeks ago, but at the time, I had no idea what the contest would be. I’d bet that never in his life did Mr. Moneyseed think he’d be a judge in a rubber duck haiku contest. I hope he doesn’t smack me when I meet him in person!
