Woody Allen + Ringtone + Baby Duck = Cuteness Overload?

My colleague Zena and I have been talking about maybe doing some kind of a story on Woody Allen's jazz band. In case you didn't know he has been playing clarinet in a New Orleans-style jazz band for decades. They play pretty much every Monday night at the Cafe Carlyle in New York City.

So while we were noodling around for an angle, we checked out the website of one of the band's members. And there we found a blog entry about a new ringtone he created — the theme from the "Wonder Pets."

If you are not a small child or the parent of one, you have probably never heard of the Wonder Pets and you have no idea why they would make an awesome ringtone. Let me set it up for you.
