Jim: The Designated Duck

“Have you ever noticed,” I slurred to the green-headed duck sitting on the stool beside me, “that everybody shakes the ice cubes in their glass once the drink is gone?”

He rolled his eyes and replied, “The writer Mary Pettibone Poole once said that alcohol is a good preservative for everything but brains.”

“Do you think it’s because the tinkling ice sounds so lonely?”

He started to answer but I was already onto my next thought. “If the formula for water is H2O, then is the formula for an ice cube H2O squared?”

“I’ll call you a cab,” he sighed.

Had Fred said "H2O cubed", would the duck have ordered him another cocktail?
