Do you love rubber duckies? Do you love Mr. T? Would you love the bastard offspring of a rubber ducky and Mr. T? How about Carmen Miranda? All this and more at Celebriducks.com. via memepool

I love the fact that, if you want the Groucho duck, you have to settle for the third edition. I wonder how much a mint-condition first Groucho is worth...

About $11.99 -- guaranteed to "float great." Buy now, eBay later!

You gotta love the Mona Lisa duck. I wonder, is da Vinci doing back or front flips in his grave? Eh, I'm sure the guy had a sense of humor.
As for Mr. T . . . I'm sure they have some time before he gets wind of this. No doubt he's busy hunting down Cindy Lauper.

Please, I beseech you, don't click this link. I did once, and bought twelve of them. I eventually managed to talk them into taking back three (and got a full refund, after a wee bit of wrangling) after I told them to keep me on notice for the Frank N'Furter duck.

Unsolicited, unpaid endorsement: they are well-made, float and squeak wonderfully. My only complaint was the return procedure, because they do try to make you feel very guilty about it. "Well, they're collectibles." "I don't care, I don't have enough room in my bathroom for all of them - I'm sending them back." "But they'll appreciate in value." "Oh, like all the beanie babies? No, I bought a commodity - I'm sending it back, and I want a refund." You get the idea.

The people at Celebriducks need to take a meeting with the people behind this product and I think we'll see the next great product don'tcha think?

Okay, couldn't get to my own weblog for a minute there, and had to wing it. Here's my full report of my purchase, in three-part harmony, and with rotating .gif. (self-link, naturally).

Where's T.J. Duckett of the Atlanta Falcons? What about Long Duck Dong from '16 Candles?' Presidential Ducks, you say? "Mallard" Fillmore! Okay, the duck stops here.

Me, I'm saving my money and biding my time, waiting for their first edition of the Redford "Get your own weblog" duckwit.

From Seattle's pop culture mecca, Archie McPhee, we bought the (unrelated) Dead Duck and Devil Duck for our hot tub.

When you see the Devil Duck, that's them dancing.

I actually staged an email write-in campaign to force a Tom Waits Celebriduck.

Sadly, they failed to produce, despite a couple of encouraging responses.

I guess Pasties and a G-String, Beer and a Duck doesn't scan.

True fact: Michelle Pfeiffer has always said she looked like a duck. When I first expressed my profound disagreement to a valued girlfriend, in a crowded Brazilian restaurant, she jealously slapped my face and called me Donald.

"Do you love rubber duckies?"
Not as much as these folks.

I, for one, would welcome a celebriduck of someone who knows one of the dark overlords of the universe.

Rubber duckies used to track ocean currents.
