Morning Roundup: Giant Rubber Duckie Invades Hong Kong. The Penguin Not Responsible.

Though the whereabouts of the criminal mastermind known only as The Penguin are unclear, he has not taken responsiblity for the giant rubber duckie which is currently sailing around the world. It showed up in Hong Kong yesterday, and is reported to be the work of an artist named Florentijin Hofman. The duckie (as yet unnamed?) is is 46-feet-tall and 55-feet-long. Also, no word yet if a giant Ernie is lurking somewhere beneath the waves. (Via Inhabitat.)

Your collection of daily offsitle links are like taking a giant bath with monsters and includes more inflatable objects, confirmed mutants, who the REAL Batman is, and more!

Am I the only one, who, from the giant duck, instead of the Penguin, immediately thought about Toyman from Superman TAS?

"Is this how all of our moms would explain The Matrix?"

Aaand... nope. :) My mom is an IT-teacher and a huge geek (she loves Pratchett and collected Shadowrun novels for a long time). She loves the first film more than me, actually.
(And Mother's Day approaches, BTW, so be warned anybody and not to forget! :O )

I did hit post on the Tony Stark comment. Auto-modded, I guess.

Anyway, here's the link:

Rubber duckie, where are you,With a love, oh so true,
