New York magazine is celebrating its 100th issue with a new cover, a cover with a chicken on it, and a new caption.
The cover features a photo of a duck in a pool of water.
A caption reads, “What a shame.”
But the duck has a different reaction to the photo.
“It’s a duck that’s in the pool,” says the duck.
“A duck that is in the water, and it’s getting ready to go swimming.”
The caption, “A DUCK THAT IS IN THE WATER” is the title of the new issue of New York Mag.
The cover features the chicken on a duck.
The caption reads “A Duck That Is In The Pool”A duck in the ocean, in this case.
The duck is sitting in the waters edge, with the duck in its lap, with a baby chick.
The new cover is a continuation of a tradition that started with a duck on a turtle, and has continued to the present day.
In the 1960s, photographer and author Charles Bukowski’s photographer friend and collaborator, Howard Rheingold, took pictures of the duck and the duck on turtles.
It was Rheingson who helped to popularize the practice of capturing duck pictures, and the practice continues to this day.
