The MMOB Daily Quote - Daffy Duck

Today, our birthday boy and quacking quotable is none other than Daffy Duck.

While I'm fairly sure you already know who he is, here's a little background from

Daffy Duck is an animated cartoon character in the Warner Brothers Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons. Daffy was the first of the new breed of "screwball" characters that emerged in the late 1930s to supplant traditional everyman characters, such as Mickey Mouse and Popeye, who were more popular earlier in the decade. Daffy is known as the best friend and occasionally self-imagined rival of Bugs Bunny.
Virtually every Warner Brothers animator put his own spin on the Daffy Duck character, who may be a lunatic vigilante in one short but a greedy gloryhound in another. Bob Clampett and Chuck Jones both made extensive use of these two very different versions of the character.

And without further ado, here is some questionable wisdom from our fine feathered friend (click on those with links to hear them in Daffy's own unmistakable voice!):

“Ridicule is the Burden of Genius.”

"You're despicable."

"What a revolting development this is."

"Something tells me this little black duck has worn out his welcome."

"I can see where this moron is going to give me trouble."

Cheers! - Jason
