29,000 Rubber Ducks to Invade Britain


Posted June 28, 2007 - By bleahy

Here's a weird one for you. Fifteen years ago a cargo container holding 29,000 rubber duckys was knocked off a ship and the horde of plastic waterfowl was unleashed upon the open seas. Experts have been tracking them ever since and they expect the ducks to wash up on the shores of the Cornwall beaches in England late this summer.

Also in the container, were blue turtles, red beavers, green frogs, purple horseshoes, clovers and blue moons. If you happen to be in England at the beach when they wash up, snatch a bunch. Collectors expect to pay up to 500 European moon dollars for a specially marked duck, which may also have a prize inside.
