When Massachusetts state Sen. Joan Lovely needed a mascot for the diaper donation drive she and a few fellow lawmakers were putting on last week, she knew the perfect fit. As State House News Service reports, Lovely brought in Drake, one of her four pet ducks, to do the honors. Lovely settled on Drake because he occasionally wears a special duck diaper when he is waddling about in her home, and the drive is intended to raise awareness and support for a pair of bills she and Reps. William “Smitty” Pignatelli and Mindy Domb have introduced to create a fund to supply diapers to low-income families. And if you are anything like me, you’re first question would be, “they make diapers for ducks?”
