At a the Emmanuel Nursing Home in Minnesota, Piper and the Pipettes — who are ducklings — help deliver mail, which sounds both adorable and remarkably inefficient, since every time they stop in someone's room, they demand to be petted. Still, it's not a bad impulse to have civic-minded animals help out with different chores — maybe we could have orangutans working in the ER, not as surgeons or anything (unless they're really dexterous), but as mascots to, you know, lighten the mood a little.
