    "If a toy is returned to the manufacturer the finder can claim a £50 reward."
    Lovely.
    Easy money, eh?

    The people will be getting their fishing nets ready.

    Still, I wish they went to Ireland.
    I want some money.

    Why would the manufacturer pay people that much for them?

    lol it would be odd just walking in the beach and then you see a whole bunch of rubber duckies just washing up on shore xD
    i would be like "look! immigrants!"
    but if i were to find one though i would keep it for some reason >.>

    If no one was told about this, the people visiting that shoreline sure would have a confusing day.

    Tyler collected 121 plastic animals as they came ashore near the city of Sitka. But the ducks are far more valuable if they are sold privately as curiosity items - fetching up to £1,000.
    -------------

    Thats up to £121,000 for collecting ducks.. :|
    $250,000.... Thats a lot of money for some crappy ducks.

    i can just imagine being stranded at see and seeing a blur of something yellow on the horizon, swimming to see what it is, and when met with the ducks promptly finishing myself off, deciding that i must have finally reached insanity

    Everyone who lives in Washington state should round up a posse and head over to Alaska/England to take back their duckies.

    Bruce Willis could star in the movie about it.

    Wait, how is it two years old?
    Thursday June 28, 2007
    Plus, the duckies were at sea for 15 years after they fell off in `92. Plus 15, that`s `07, right?

    ^^^Ding,ding,ding....winner,winner. You are correct joolia. The only part that was from 2 years ago stated that a father and son collected some off the coast of Alaska between 1993 and 2005 and now they are on their way to England. Good to know that some people can still do math =)

    also expected to wash up on shores, the thousands of bodies from the titanic. Therapists are exspected to make millions of dollars from all the little kids who see the bodies. lol, that sure would be an interesting news story.

    the bodies are ecpected to fetch a sum of $20.67 on the black market, $3.00 at the morgue, 5 to 10 cents at the recycling plant depending on wat state your in, and you gotta pay $15.00 to drop them off at the dump. lol

    cambriaseyes,

    Ten-thousand rubber ducks = approx $10k
    Diehard 4 budget = approx. $60M
    Bruce Willis + Diehard 5 + major rubber duck crisis = priceless.
