I must defend myself. HellspawneD has posted pictures up on Flickr, accusing me of – sob – doing away with one of my ducks!! I ask you – Would *I* harm my ducks???? I stole them away from the evil empire work sim. I blog about them. I named them. I put them on my holiday card. Would I HARM my ducks??
On the other hand, WHO is it who has a history of taking aim at those poor defenseless creatures? I can see now – I should have reported him to the authorities the very first time he took aim. But no, kind-hearted that I am, I thought a mere warning would suffice.
But tonight, there I was, in despair over my build assignment. Unable to make the correct prim be the root prim. I had the hair made. I changed the texture. 🙂 My son’s hair makes a great texture. So there was this hair, all ready to be turned over to the client. But I did not have the correct root prim. What to do? I called to my teacher for help. Ah yes, naive, trusting soul that I am – I asked HellspawneD for help. Perhaps his name should have been a clue……
I confess that he DID help me with the hair. And made me laugh with his new helicopter. But. Then he took aim at my ducks. Yes – he set his sights on Mallory, Bill and Drake. When you see these photos, who do YOU think would have harmed the duck? Which of us looks most likely to de-construct a duck?
It started gently enough, I suppose. He started flipping the ducks. Slipped a board under them, lifted them up, tossed them in the air. They actually didn’t mind that. They thought it was rather fun. 🙂
But then Hell built a box for scooping them. 10 points for catching the yellow duck, 5 points for a white duck, minus 10 points if you scooped two ducks at once. Oh, for shame!!!
When duck-scooping paled, Hell brought out the artillery. I didn’t even realize that weapons were ALLOWED on my property! (I’m going to have to check my rules.) Good thing that he is such a poor shot and that the ducks are so good at evasive action. It was almost like watching James Bond in action – not one of those shots struck a duck.
When his first sniper attack failed, Hell switched to a repeater. Good thing I had my MystiTool protecting me, since pellets were spraying EVERYWHERE!!!

Next he brought out a laser gun. He had no more success with lasers than with pellets. Mallory, Drake and Bill remain unscathed. (So did I, on this go-round. ) Undeterred, HellspawneD unleashed his native element: FIRE. That is right – he set my little tidal pool aflame.
But my ducks are made of stronger stuff. It will take more than fire and gunshot to sink them!!! In a last-ditch effort, Hell resorted to brute strength – sheer massive over-load to try to destroy the Intrepid Swimmers. And still they survive!!
So when you see his photos on Flickr, when you read his accusations, remember what I have shown you here. WHO spent thirty minutes tormenting and endangering my ducks???? Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, I rest my case.
