Once again, ducks and fucking are inexorably linked, only this time, instead of Changeling, it’s philatelic folks getting in on the duck action.
The Fish and Wildlife Service misprinted a phone number on the back of an order form inviting folks to order duck stamps, so instead of getting the order phone bank, callers reach… a phone sex line.
The carrier card for the duck stamp transposes two numbers, so instead of listing 1-800-782-6724, it lists 1-800-872-6724. The first number spells out 1-800-STAMP24, while the second number spells out 1-800-TRAMP24.
People calling that second number are welcomed by “Intimate Connections” and enticed by a husky female voice to “talk only to the girls that turn you on,” for $1.99 a minute.
It would cost $300,000 to reprint the cards, so, frisky ducks will flirt with the stamp collectors until next year when new cards are printed. Fuck a duck indeed.
