Why did the duck cross the road? It sounds like a bad joke, but it was a reality for some drivers in Iowa when a giant inflatable duck came loose and rolled down the street.
The duck belonged to Youth Emergency Services and Shelter in Des Moines and came loose last Thursday. It’s affectionately known as Quacky, and was helping drum up support for the group’s annual fundraiser, a duck derby involving 42,000 rubber ducks.
Fortunately, people were able to wrangle the wayward duck, but not before it tumbled down the road.
