So, after all that, a happy ending. Who would have thought? Oh, wait, I haven’t actually told you how this crazy but somewhat true story ends yet. Last we left off, Feathers and friends had destroyed all the glass in Melbourne, giving glaziers plenty of work to do, intending to have that fix the economy. However, the mass destruction had many unintended consequences, leading to this being considered one of the greatest disasters in modern history. How, then, does this story have a happy ending?
After destroying all of the windows and glass balustrades in the Melbourne area, the ducks became aware that their actions actually had a negative impact on the city, with many people hospitalised. Feathers and his friends, feeling awful about what they’d done, began to rally all of the ducks across Melbourne to help the people. They served as assistants to doctors and nurses in hospitals, helped the cleanup crews get rid of all the shattered glass and even offered free labour to the glaziers, making the many glass replacement services near Melbourne run even smoother.
Altogether, the effort did take several years and billions of dollars, but in the end, everything was restored to the way it was before. Although, the economy was in total ruin thanks to many businesses being unable to run while they had no windows, so that wasn’t great, especially considering that the ducks had set out to fix the economy in the first place. But hey, at least that team the reporter had been ranting about managed to get an excellent close win the next week, coming back from seven goals down to secure an important victory after three weeks of abysmal failure.
Now, you may be wondering what the moral of this crazy, partially true story is. I thought it was pretty obvious, but in case you haven’t figured it out, the moral is that ducks cannot be trusted to make big economic decisions.
