Baby ducks! Sadly, this is the best thing to come out of EA since NHL '94

The best part of writing for a video game whos-a-whatsits like Destructoid is that I can get away with completely ignoring what's going on in the world of gaming in favor of baby ducks!

Kotaku managed to swipe an e-mail (that you can find after the jump) recently issued to employees by the molemen who rule EA's underground Los Angeles campus from subterranean caves, and instead of the perfunctory Madden-this and inhuman-servitude-that that these e-mails usually consist of, today's topic was all about baby ducks (and the requisite duck humpin' that created the babies).

It seems that two amorous ducks took up residence in the pond on EA's LA campus, and immediately got down to the business of getting down to biznass. A little while later, a posse of baby ducks was spawned, and the entirety of EA's workforce felt their dark, cold hearts overflow with a sensation that Walt Whitman might call "wicked awesome".

We imagine it's only a matter of time before one of the ducks starts complaining about not having an accurate down rating, or EA starts pumping out the exact same ducks every year, but until then, we'll be down at the pond with Meg.

As many of you have seen and heard by now, we have 8 new additions to the campus. Our mom and dad ducks (that hang out in the water feature) are now the proud parents of 8 lil' fuzzy ducklings. Please be respectful of them and observe them from a safe distance as mom and dad are feeling a bit protective of them, as you might imagine.

Please refrain from littering or putting out cigarettes in the sand and water feature area.

Please don't feed them Chimichonga or the Thai Curry Shrimp (today's Entrée Feature) or any other bizarre thing.

Please keep your distance and enjoy the young'uns while we have them.
