 Rubber Ducky you're the one...

KitschA bounty has been announced for people who recover rubber duckies and other bath toys washed up on the shore. Lucky beachcombers will receive a $100 U.S. savings bond for each toy recovered.

The toys have been floating around for the past eleven years, set adrift in the pacific when the cargo container they were in fell off a ship in the Pacific. According to an oceanographic consultant they can be found not only in the northwestern states, but, surprisingly, along the east coast as well, having made a transarctic journey in the past decade.

The manufacturer of the toys is offering the cash.

What I think is most amusing to me is that I've actually been following this story, and the reward offer that was made yesterday is just the latest development.

There's a longer article about it at MS-NBC.
