    “daft ideas to encourage Brits to have more fun”

    Removing the police state surveillance systems would be fun.

    How about taking the stick out…

    I, for one, welcome our new giant rubber duck overlords.

    Reminds me of a float I helped build for the Bermuda Day parade back in the ’90s.

    By fluke, I happened to see it and I’m still smiling.  It’s a shame it was a promotion for a gambling website but…

    “Forced to open”? Honored to open, more like it.

    Will we get to see it on land and causing a ruckus in downtown Gotham?

    The 75′ loofah was airlifted in, while the 35′ bar of soap just squeaked under.  They’re still working on the logistics for the 100′ tub caddy.

    Cheap Florentijn Hofman rip-off: http://florentijnhofman.nl/dev/project.php?id=154

    One of his ducks will be on display in the harbour of Sidney next month http://www.sydneyfestival.org.au/2013/Family/Rubber-Duck-at-Darling-Harbour/

      I had assumed it was one of his. I saw his Auckland, NZ one and it was really cool. It’s pretty poor form to copy his work and use it publicly in the exact same way he would use it (floating on/down public waterways)

    Next time a ship approaches the bridge and seems too tall to pass under, they could tell the captain to, you know… DUCK!

    Great improvement over the traditional large wooden rabbit.
