Hot Slut Of The Day!

DISCO DUCK! (Side note: Raven totally stole Disco Duck’s bangs.)

Yesterday was Rick Dees’ 65th birthday, and I know, I am completely not shit for not making him top Birthday Slut. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, where Rick Dees was the king of radio in the 80s and 90s, so I should be ashamed of myself. But I’m making that up by paying homage to Disco Duck!

In 1976, Rick Dees was a DJ in Memphis when, for some reason, he got the idea to do a song about a disco duck. Rick Dees said he wanted to make a disco song and he threw in the duck thing, because he thought that was funny. And because, I’m guessing, the COKE told him to do it. But anyway, Rick Dees wrote this masterpiece by himself. It went all the way to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, because again, everybody was high in the 70s.

Rick Dees says that he was inspired by a song from the 1960s called “The Duck” by Jackie Lee. It took him only one day to write it, but it took him three months to put it together and find someone to do the voice of the duck. Ken Pruitt did it. When it came out, it became a huge hit and Rick Dees was even fired from the station he worked for in Memphis for pimping that mess out. Rick Dees performed his masterpiece live and on TV shows like American Bandstand. 

Even though the song was a hit, many have called it one of the worst songs that was ever created. Those “many” are obviously jealous of the artistry of this song and they wish they would’ve come up with perfection like this:

And if you’re getting drug tested next week, you shouldn’t have watched that, because you’re totally going to test positive for COKE now.
