save the duckies!!

Yesterday, I learned with great dismay that the ongoing existence of rubber duckies in our society is at peril!

The poor ducks are yet again being libelled as all being carriers of Bisphenol A or BPA, and words like “contamination” are being bandied about! And, they’re selling replacement “enviro-friendly” ducks here in Toronto for $10. Methinks this is just another scam to separate us from our hard-earned dollars, frankly.

I’m now very, very concerned about my own little Duck Family – I’m really hoping that the authorities don’t come and round them up in the middle of the night. I’ve encouraged them to go into hiding (or to move to Sudbury, Ontario, where duckies are valued highly – they have a Duck Derby every year with a top prize of $10,000 to the lucky duck who wins!) However, brave souls that they are, they are intending to march on Queen’s Park instead:

But fear not, all. Quack has advised me that they are calling in reinforcements to help them in this struggle for their very lives!

An obviously fabulous artist called Florentijn Hoffman is the genius behind them.

Take that, duck haters!!!

A very happy Wednesday to you all. Must go off and prepare the duck shelter now…

    Hey, have you ever seen the Victoria’s Secret ducks? I think it’s Victoria’s Secret, they are very cute although not you typical yellow duckies.

    Hey if you want to send the ducks to Sudbury, I live a 5 min walk from the Rotary Duck Derby site at Lily Creek Park.
