Rubber Duck Invades France
Residents along the Loire River were treated to what has to be the largest rubber duckie on the planet during the recent le Lieu Unique and Biennial Estuaire.

At a size of 26 x 20 x 32 meters, Hofman claims that there is no political connotation, but rather “relieves mondial tensions as well as define them.” Be that as it may, that would be one scary quacker if you didn’t see it coming. (Note the size of people to the right of the duckie.)
