    Yeah, someone else posted this in the Duck forum, too. It's kinda funny, but I feel bad at the same time, too.

    There was a big debate because someone swore that they saw a duckling fall through a sewer grate, but there is the same number at the beginning of the video that were at the end of the video. And, I saw the duckling that seemed to have fallen down the grate climb out and run back to mama right before the camera angle change.

    That mama sure got her feathers all messed up, too.

    Luckily, ducklings have a lot of fat padding around them. I remember a duckling that used to bounce off of rocks all the time trying to catch flies. She's perfectly fine, about five and a half months old, now.

    I was both horrified for the little things and hysterical with laughter. I am sick too... Loved the one shot of the duckling that finally gets upright and shakes its head like "whew! that was quite a ride!"

    Has anyone noticed how viral this thing has gotten during the last few days? I think the first time I looked, it had about 20K views, now it's well over 2 million.

    I've spread it around, too. Heading up to three million now. I noticed that the comments seemed to have started to come in really fast beginning around early this morning.
