It is true that the history of Macondo’s major league rutting interest has been rife with instability, weirdness and absurdity. It’s not the team itself, though: weirdness rises up from our saline-riddled karst like goopher radon. Here’s an example of what I mean; liberally interpreted, it will explain a lot of what goes on with the Feesh:
“Members of the Martin County Sheriff’s Office were in for quite the surprise when answering a call of a suspected burglar inside a home.
According to the Palm Beach Post, a woman called 911 after returning to her Palm City home to find her front door open and noises coming from inside. Deputies responded and found the culprit: a duck. The agency had fun with the finding on their Facebook page, posting the following summary:
“Deputy [Becky] Brady advised that the suspect tried to duck out on her several times, but they were able to apprehend him without rattling any feathers,” the post says. “Despite a fowl attitude, the uninvited house guest was released and not charged. Another MCSO case quacked.”
