The Story About Ping

Curator Reviews

Michael Ian Black

The last duck aboard the boat gets a whack in this 1933 classic. The duck, Ping, fearing punishment dawdles too long ashore and almost ends up as somebody's dinner. Eventually returned he accepts his spanking. Not that we’d ever spank our kids but the message still resonates: Better to take a little pain now than a lot later.
