The World's Largest Rubber Duck!

in life •  last year

In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday this weekend (as well as the Waterfront Festival), a giant rubber duck floated into Toronto for the weekend. No, seriously, this thing is massive!

As usual, because we cannot have nice things in Toronto, discussion quickly turned into how much of a waste of money it is (price tag: $200,000), whereas others marveled at how awesome it is (myself included)! You can apparently buy one of these online. For more on the duck:
