The BEST of Humor

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Best of Humor

This BEST of Humor page is one of 12 new sections of the incredible 1,000+ piece Oregon Football Repository. It has been a blast to find all these articles and videos, and my hope is that these new sections will be a great place to retreat to when you want a break from “real-life” and wish the pleasant diversion of reading about our Beloved Ducks.

Saturday Spooks from Alan Lohner

College Football Returns with a Flash? No, a Flush
Published August 27, 2022
Alan takes no prisoners showing USC fans for what they actually are as you will laugh and wince. An epic start!

Below are the “Top 20” favorite humor articles, but you will be provided the links to view more of these pieces by Canard and Kim Hastings near the end of the suggested group of the “Best of Humor.”

Kim Hastings gave us four incredible years of humor at … truly in our “Hall of Fame!”

Something I never anticipated with this site is the opportunity to meet, become friends with and really enjoy fellow Duck fans that I never knew before. Kim Hastings has made me laugh so many times–even when I know it is coming. Saturday mornings were a blast to get a cup of coffee and sit down and see who Kim was lampooning today.

Over these years I’ve come to enjoy his humor over the phone and by email, and while others use Social Media–this site has become that for me. Kim has added so much to my life and yet …. he lives in Tacoma and I’ve never met the guy! Such is the beauty of the web when you can start friendships online, and build them over the phone.  And thanks to his hot wife, Dee-Dee for putting with our roaring over the phone at each other’s “inside jokes” that Kim would place in his articles.

I enjoy writing—when I have something to say, but have you ever tried to write something funny? Even tougher … do it on command? That is what Kim did every week for four years and it is something I still am amazed at, and am grateful for. I do hope you will overlook some of the jokes in the articles that don’t make sense, as they were timely at the moment–but we have no idea now what they are referring to.  Truly–you had to be there…

Yet with that, I believe you will enjoy the best that Kim and Canard offered to all of us, the readers of

New 2024 FishDuck Publishing Schedule….

During the off-season the publishing schedule will consist of articles on Mondays and Tuesdays. Do keep checking as new articles could be published during the week when a writer has something to say.

In mid-August of 2024, we will go back to the seven-days-a-week of articles during the football season as we did in the football season of 2023.

The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there.  At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.

Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!

OBD Forum members….we got your back.  No Trolls Allowed!
