I was hoping more of a plastic duck boat, instead it's like a kids blowup bouncy castle.

There was a tremendous car accident on the fort Pitt bridge as a result of this I imagine around midnight on Friday. About six cars, one on fire. Looked like one hit the side wall and spun out and then got crushed. Everyone was okay and standing outside their cars so I don't feel bad talking about it

I don't either. I think it's one of the stupidest things I've ever seen, and the fact that people flocked to go see it ... I thought was pretty pathetic.

I really hate when people rain on others' parade, so I try to avoid it. But this is one place where I may have to. To me, it just seems like people would go see anything that they were told was special.

There's nothing to get. It's just supposed to be fun and playful.

Kids I can understand. It's the adults that were acting like it was like OMG the most amazing thing in the world. Whatever works though I guess.

Looking forward to seeing it on the baseball game broadcast tonight. It's so cute. I love its face. I want the Reds to see this thing in their nightmares.

Let's go, Ducs!

It's better, more useful, art than most other stuff.... such as the flashing lights and loud noises exhibit that they had to shut down because it was giving people seizures.

I think its pretty hilarious. Or I did. Now I get additional enjoyment out of people being annoyed by it for absolutely no reason.

I fail how to see this is considered art or how a guy is taking credit for being the artist who created it. He made something that's been around for years larger and odds are he didn't actually make it. I'm guessing he paid some company to make it and then he gets to take credit for being an artist?

If I pay a company to put a picture of a rubber duck on a t-shirt am I an artist? Or am I just an idiot with a rubber duck on a t-shirt? I know, I know I'm an idiot either way, but I don't get it being art.

I guess the duck is something different because it's so big, but I'm going to drive an hour and half to see it. I really don't understand the purpose of it, but that's how most art is. It's basically useless and a complete waste of money at least in my opinion.
