Joe Banks is an 82-year-old man who has fed the ducks at a pond every day for the last 17 years.
Bart reported about him in the first part of Kidz Newz' segment Bart's People. One month ago, Joe discovered the ducks were gone. Some people think the ducks went to Canada, others think they went to Toronto and still others think Joe used to sit by a different pond, located next to the one he is sitting now by. While watching the segment, Mr. Burns realized that his power plant could kill the ducks.
