    Great fun as always. I especially cracked up at Ajax trying to climb up the fire escape. But, as I started reading today's installment, I had an attack of post-editor traumatic syndrome.You should have called it…"The Case of the Maltese Mallard".

      Why a "Duck"? It takes less time to letter.

        Duck is a funnier word. Actually, "duck" is one of the funniest words in the English language. It's even funnier than "banana," which is pretty ducking funny.

      Have no fear, all you fans of the word "mallard"! It will apear soon within the pages of "Simone & Ajax". Keep checking S&A out each week so you won't miss it.Exciting, huh?

    (had to sign in)Good job of getting this up, guys! I suppose Andrew will tell me to wait for this, but what use is one duck without a mate? Once his liver is gone, it's gone. And eating talking animals? I'll call PETA!

    How come the Maltese Duck issues haven't been added to the general S&A list of issues where the others were. I didn't know these new issues had been added until I tripped over them accidentally.
