Donald Duck Drug Story

 

Every time I bother to leave my squalid home to face the pockmarked landscape of abandoned mini malls that I call my neighborhood, people stop me on the streets to talk about how much they love my duck posts. “Never enough duck posts!” That’s what I always hear.  Good thing my enthusiasm  for cartoon ducks without pants knows no bounds.

Here’s a trippy little drugged-out tale by my favorite cartoonist ever, Carl Barks.  Huey, Dewey & Louie trick “Unca Donald” into thinking that he’d slept to the far-off futuristic year, 1990.  Yeah, it’s your typical Rip Van Winkle scenario, but the ether (used to “doctor his cheap gasoline”) freak-out really makes this never reprinted oddity a great read  around the ol’  lava lamp.

About Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.
