Release the Quacken: giant duck visits Pittsburgh


An enormous inflatable duck floats on the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh on Sept 27, 2013. Created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, the 40 ft duck kicked off the Pittsburgh Arts Festival and will spend its first evening under the 6th street bridge. Last seen deflated in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbor, the latest duck sibling will be moored at Point State Park for three weeks. Photo: Heather Beschizza

Wednesday is Dead Duck Day

Dead Duck Day — the annual memorial celebration honoring the first recorded case of male homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck — happens this Wednesday in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The holiday will be celebrated with a speech in front of the window where one of the ducks in question met his fate, followed by a duck dinner at a local Chinese restaurant.
