Cute Overload: Your One-Stop Source for Rubber Duckie News

HONG KONG – Rubber Duck, the traveling art project currently gracing Victoria Harbor, is feeling a little… deflated. According to CNN, the 54-foot inflatable duck is mysteriously dead in the water. Reached for comment at his home on Monster Island, film legend Erniezilla says he’s “inconsolable.”

ANAHEIM, CA – Dozens of decorated ducks tried their luck in Disneyland’s charity Rubber Duck Race through the canal of “it’s a small world.” On a tragic note, several ducks tried to drown themselves after enduring the ride’s iconic theme song.

    I thought they’re just letting the air out and do some maintenance on the big duckie

  2. Begins singing: Rubber Ducky your the one… you make bath time so much fun… Rubber Ducky I’m awfully fond of you…eww ohhh ohhhhh!

  3. Also I am keeping bendy bits crossed HOPING the big yellow guy comes to San Francisco Bay! Then I can be a CO peep reporter on the scene.

  4. One more thing Darth Vadar Duck ROFLMAO!

    A 12-ton cat would be 24,000 pounds, or roughly 2,400 average-weight cats.

    Would you rather fight a 12-ton cat or 2,400 10-pound cats?

    Re: the clip: Yeah, I get it, it’s a small world. :roll:

    That’s what I heard too – a pre-planned deflation for maintenance. Which is good, at first I thought it was some gigantic rubber-infecting strain of Bird Flu.

  9. Erniezilla = least scary monster since the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man :lol:

  10. Sharon Wilson says:

    What–NOBODY decorated their ducks to look like Donald or Daisy?

  11. Ffanffan says:

    That’s a legitimate concern….Get some vaccine Duckie!

  12. With a fire hose and good water pressure a 12-ton cat would be no problem.

    With a bunch of normal ones I can survive the attack by going inside my house or getting into a car. With one 12 ton cat I figure I’d be basically out of luck without some kind of armored vehicle.

  15. Unless they trapped you inside for a long time – like in Cujo…

    Let’s assume a box 12″x6″x4″ is sufficiently large enough to keep a 10 pound cat amused. This works out to 1/6 of a cubic foot. Then a cat 2400 times that size will require a box with a volume of 400 cubic feet, with linear dimensions of (for example) 5’x8’x10′, which is not that difficult to produce. Peeps, let’s get those duck-tape and cardboard ready!

    (puts calculator back into pocket)

    You are a genius. Thank you. Even though all those calculations made my head hurt.

  18. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Part of me says “poor snakies”, but then I’m thousands of miles away on the other side of the Pond. So I can say that.
