Lame Duck Day

Where did the term come from? In the 1700’s a Lame-Duck was used to describe those stock brokers who had gauged their investments badly and could no longer pay off their debts. Later, it was extended to include unethical business-men who would find themselves bankrupt, and continue to do business anyway, even though they had no money to pay employees or suppliers.

I took a photo of a real duck on one leg, a really lame duck!

So what are you going to photo today, to show lame duck day?
