That Duck Ring Tone Came From Oregon

As you may have read by now, President Obama's speech yesterday about gay rights got interrupted by a duck ring tone.

Kinda weird, huh? But former WW staffer Byron Beck learned that it came from Oregon and yes, it's a Ducks fan. Beck reported (in a post that he's since taken down from his blog) that the caller/prankster was gay rights leader/fund-raising powerhouse/Ducks fan Terry Bean.

If the president was unhappy with the UO intrusion, just imagine what his brother-in-law thinks.
