The first case of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard Anas platyrhynchos (Aves: Anatidae) (page 243-247)
On 5 June 1995 an adult male mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) collided with the glass façade of the Natuurmuseum Rotterdam and died. Another drake mallard raped the corpse almost continuously for 75 minutes. Then the author disturbed the scene and secured the dead duck. Dissection showed that the rape-victim indeed was of the male sex. It is concluded that the mallards were engaged in an `Attempted Rape Flight' that resulted in the first described case of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard.
Keywords: homosexuality, necrophilia, non-consensual copulation, mallard, Anas platyrhynchos.

"You were on key, which I really appreciate."
"First of all, I liked your outfit, and I liked how you were closing your eyes."
"I agree with her -- I liked your pants, and you had a lot of emotion."
"You looked like you were in pain!"
In other news, I thought you might get a kick out of seeing our Wall of Shame: the home of lost-and-unclaimed photo IDs. I started taping them to the wall a few months ago, and it seems like it grows by one or two each week.
I don't know what's going on with that one at the upper left corner: maybe it was just the angle, or maybe they've started using some magic new non-photographable coating on licenses, but it came out solid white in all the photos I took! The hologram on the bottom middle one is pretty funky too...
