Okay, I’m coming very late to this particular table, but in my wanderings today, I came across the annual Pied Piper Duck Fashion Show in Sydney, Australia, that’s apparently been going on for 30 years. How did I miss it all this time? It’s part of the week-long Sydney Royal Easter Show which is attended by more than 900,000 people annually.

While I haven’t been able to find a link to the show itself, I was unable to avoid links everywhere to Brian Harrington’s website. His ducks are regular participants in the show, and he is responsible for much of the fashion featured. You can even hire him (and his ducks) (oh, and there are “famous” trained pigs, too) for your event.

Anyway, the duck fashions are hilarious and adorable and today’s beautiful thing. Ducks!

  2. I love ducks. They’re all over the campus where I work and every year we watch them pair off, build nests under various bushes and hatch ducklings. I pretty much stalk them for a chance to hold a duckling. This is brilliant. That there is actually such a thing is sort of dumbfounding but brilliant nonetheless.

  3. PS – I should thank you for that, actually, because I am currently DYING listening to “Koalas in the rain. No fucks given!”

  4. Who and how on earth came up with this concept, 30 years ago or otherwise? Surreal and funky and bordering on animal cruelty (do the ducks like this??). Despite myself I am quite taken with some of these quackers.
