I can't remember where.

The duck-knapping thread made me think of it.

According to that it happened in September! Have the BBC only just heard about it?! (Radio 2 today hmm)

No it Wasn't September. It was last night. It was meant as a New Year display.

Oops! I bet the explosion snapped a good many pairs of knicker elastic. grin

There have been 2 exploding ducks, both by the same maker. Apparently the latest was attacked by eagles.
I note we have 2 (unrelated) duck threads going.

They are not exploding but there was a consignment of Rubber Ducks that fell into the sea in 1992. There progress has been followed by oceanographers.

We have ducks looking for food around our boat - but thankfully none of them have exploded. Not yet, anyway! [Hmm]

Duck a la orange anyone?

narrowboatnan do you live on it full-time? Have you got a cosy little firegrate that heats the water? envy

Were having duck tonight, with chips.

Do we have a special thread for non sequiturs - or do we perhaps need to initiate one? confusedconfused

If Narrowboatnan plays her cards right, she can have that too.

Duck and chips. Hmm. Wonder why that didn't catch on.

No idea - it's very good.

I have a giant yellow plastic duck. It's huge but my son won't let me get rid of it. It scares the littlest GC when it's in the bath. Maybe she will ride on it when she's a bit bigger. No eagles in bathroom luckily.
