That duck helped rake in over [7.6 million dollars.](https://globalnews.ca/news/3799814/toronto-giant-rubber-duck-generated-money/) That 200,000 rental was well worth it.


Natural_RX

We definitely achieved step 4 here.


General_Xenon

3:??? 4: Profit.


krush3r66

Step 5: purchase second duck and double profits


00RacEcaR00

Step 6: sell it to other countries and take over the world


NotTheAbhi

3: Have fun?


ShadowDrifter179

Step 3 is invest in Lakefront Property.


De_La_Mancha

Thank you, sir


theblackcanaryyy

Goddd… I was sitting here reading this like, why is no one saying *how* it generated revenue, what the heck And then I realized I’m an idiot because that’s a link there, not just a pretty pink font lol


ZakuInATopHat

Even without the massive profit, I would consider it a public dopamine/endorphin generator. Who wouldn’t be a little happier seeing a huge goofy duck floating out there on the water?


z0wy

I would be happy to fund this as a taxpayer


7937397

Divided out among everyone who pays taxes, absolutely worth it.


thelittlelizard

Yeah it’d be < $1 increase on everyone’s taxes


7937397

Canada has like 40 million people


thelittlelizard

So it would be like.. half a cent increase. Neato


Doosdtgbikyggo

"you're watching the Canada channel! the only channel in canada!!"


jolsiphur

This is a momentous day for Canada, and therefore, the rest of the world.


Crystal42069

Bold of you to assume everyone pays tax


purplecurtain16

Yeah that's still <$1


LordTonka

Much better than a oversized military.


wiseoldllamaman2

America could buy like three million seven hundred sixty-seven thousand five hundred rubber duckies for what we spend on the military every year. But we're reasonable people. We demand merely two million duckies.


Doosdtgbikyggo

[james. we have to talk about the ducks](https://youtu.be/uYOmtEcZ1lk)


WorgenDeath

Remember seeing his videos, pretty funny at the time, shame that I can't really look at them the same way anymore after he got outted as a rapist.


Soul_Like_A_Modem

That very "oversized" military you feel smug enough to criticize is what allows weaker countries like Canada to ignore their own defense. Pretty pathetic and very Canadian to criticize the militarism of the country they depend on militarily. How many countries depend on Canada for defense? Zero. Canada isn't even solely responsive for its own defense. How many countries depend on the US for defense? Literally dozens, directly and indirectly, including Canada, most of Europe, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and others. US defense spending is reflective of the fact that the US is a hugely important country that has to defend its own interests as well as the interests of other countries in its sphere of influence.


DragonS1226

Putting aside the blatant racism against Canada, Canada don't really pick fights they don't need to just relief missions mostly to make sure citizens are safe so ig countries and their leaders don't depend on Canada but rather the countries' people. idk what you value but I think the people are pre important. •-•


Doosdtgbikyggo

fuck canada canada bombed the baldwins and scotts a dick


DragonS1226

Dang ig Canada isn't as weak as homie ^^^ made it out then.


JohnGoodmansMistress

fuck amerika too


DrunkenKarnieMidget

This South Park reference is so old, people actually missed it.


Roll_Tide_Pods

>racism against canada


DragonS1226

Canadians* happy?


Roll_Tide_Pods

No, I’m not. Because “Canadian” isn’t a fucking race, you spoon.


DragonS1226

My bad ill just say "putting aside the blatant being a jerk to Canadians exclusively." you knife.


Roll_Tide_Pods

The word you’re looking for is “xenophobic”


DragonS1226

Why not just say that next time instead of making me reply 4 times for nothing. Thanks for the boost in vocabulary.


DarkPugLord23

r/ShitAmericansSay


ITookTooLongToPick

"Weaker countries like Canada" Ok man, not to say that the Canadian military is the greatest, but it is #16 most powerful military despite its really small size and they've won the majority of the wars they partook in. It's oversized military wasn't being used for defense, but for bombing brown children in third world countries.


Thatguy3145296535

Just as Im happy to pay for a minister's family's golf trip in Scotland on a private jet /s


basopazogug

But look how cute he is <3


IndianaGeoff

Thank goodness it is a duck. If they had made a giant Canadian Goose it would be in America shitting on every sidewalk.


IgotCharlieWork

Is it Ge-off or Jeff?


IndianaGeoff

What ever you prefer.


scheisse_grubs

Goddamn cobra chickens!


Meokriz

For no reason? It is great morale booster everytime you see it


chocolatejunkie91

As a Canadian tax payer, I don't mind at all ;)


BefreiedieTittenzwei

It's just Ducky


PerformanceLoud3229

yeah it cost you like half a cent to make it along w/ everyone else.


Tsu_Dho_Namh

For real, I don't mind paying for this. It's cheaper and funnier than most wastes of cash.


purplecurtain16

The rubber duck was made by the city of toronto and paid for by it's residents. The event it was created for generated $7.6million. So yeah, this was a great investment. Horrible for the environment tho


liudhsfijf

Why is it bad for the environment?


purplecurtain16

Not exactly biodegradable


Hamed022

This is gonna be the next trojan horse


BefreiedieTittenzwei

"Honey, the Canadians left is a giant rubber duck...what do we do with it?" "Bring it inside of course."


The_Weeb_Sleeve

Honestly even if there’s an invading army inside, it’s kinda worth


UnionizeYunyun

Who knows. If they conquer your country, what’s stopping them from using your industry to mass produce more weaponized ducks. It’s a win win. We get to see more giant ducks


Kilgour_Bass

As Canadian, I have no issue with this.


kentro2002

I see it as art. More fun than a statue of some old guy.


lordyeeter

Or some female holding a torch


The_Unclaimed_One

Honestly kinda surprised the French didn’t have another revolt after that. Couldn’t have been cheap


The_Weeb_Sleeve

I’m pretty sure it was publicly funded, like the architect went around door to door, metaphorically


The_Unclaimed_One

Interesting. Good to know


Camboi696969

FINALLY! SOMETHING WORTH BEING BORN HERE FOR!


AGirlwithPurpleHair

All the Canadians flocking here being like "I don't mind this at all." Literally, every Canadian approves of this (including myself). I personally have seen the giant rubber duck. It was glorious.


Elder_Scrolls_Nerd

What part of Canada is it in


Hefty-Willingness-44

Acually it was rented, they spent that money on a rental.


StormTGunner

Duck's trying his best ok


[deleted]

[удалено]


Kilgour_Bass

Well, we loves ya too bud!


AcD07

That's like half a dollar out your taxes, you good


[deleted]

more like < 1 penny


AcD07

I did the math its half a penny


P4sTwI2X

James Veitch is that you?


readwiteandblu

Damn! You beat me to it. Veitch's duck story is his #2 in my book. The best is the guy who called up insisting James was responsible for handling a problem with his apartment.


WorgenDeath

Shame he got outted as a rapist, used to enjoy those sketches of his.


inathuramgodse

India has a Prime Minister who just fly around the world for no reason


DankFo3ta5

Rather that than a billionaires pockets being lined


IfImNotDeadImSueing

Australia does too, we have a rubber duck race in my state where people buy a duck and they all get thrown in the river and race each other


Muttontop

We have that in my home town to. It's called the duckey 500. All proceeds go to charity. It was hilarious ever year watching the stupid this float down the river


moose123456792

I am Canada tax payer, and I approve of this


DragonS1226

As a future tax payer I will gladly pay for cool stuff like this


zeebow77

I'm a Canadian taxpayer, I am happy with this spending.


Emperor_Quintana

Canadian tax dollars at work, people…


MrBoko3389

ba-ba-ba bubberducky bubberducky bubberducky bubberducky bubberducky bubberduck


The_Unclaimed_One

Better than the pockets of politicians like the US budget that isn’t defense


ron_sheeran

Fun fact: the US spends most of its national budget on health-care and social security programs.


WorgenDeath

That mighy be where they spend it but most of it never reaches the people that need it, it just ends up in some executive's pocket or gets wasted in some other way. The US spending money on things like healthcare, social security and education is like a little kid running the tap for 2 minutes instead of brushing their teeth. You could just actually fix it instead of pretending and it wouldn't cost you a penny more than you are already spending pretending to do it.


Dunkleostrich

Better than a billionaire that goes to space for no reason.


Meatball0sub

How is that 200 thousand?


DustyMetal2

Because it is 6 stories tall and weighs 30,000 pounds. Also, there’s not enough demand thats they can be manufactured in such quantity that economy of scale comes into effect.


Meatball0sub

❤️❤️


Siniroth

Only 200 thousand, we need a billionaire to decide to dump their fortune into these things


Ok_Entertainment1944

Tourism and City Beautification. Have you heard of them?


Gitxsan

Bragging rights! Who else has a giant duck like that?


EPIK_DUDE99BOI

We sent our frenemy trudou a eye opening email Eh we had to resort to calling him a very very naughty name... stinky face.


Scythebrine9

I remember when this thing was in Long Beach Harbor, right where i live


MonikaChanIsBestGirl

We had a smaller inflatable one that would be sent down the river, then collected and reused the next year in Pittsburgh, PA, but i think a few years ago somebody shot it with a bb gun or something. It popped :/


Asmeig

200k is nothing in terms of tax


BigJig95

I actually got to see this


TheNerdMaster69

You're goddamn right we do


idrawhoworiginal

That duck made more money then you ever will lol


djs0624

Well actually this duck I'd private owned. Makes its way from city to city. The amount of tourism money that this thing draws is insane. We had in my city about 10 years ago. For a couple months. Every single weekend looked like a festival was going on. The downtown area was slammed and all the bars were totally packed, far more than usual.


tinymeasles

W don’t need roads. We need ducks


Abdul19899

I think this is better than the "World's largest statue" here in India.


MO2004

The return on investment in terms of generated economic activity was approximately 38-fold, I don't think any Ontario taxpayer (the federal gov didn't pay for it, it was the Ontario gov) is resentful towards it.


Alienwallbuilder

Brings to mind Kermit singing Rubber duckie you're the one!


NooseLoose68

this is a modern world wonder


PunkRockFatBeats

For anyone interested, also see the Voice of Fire controversy of 1989. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voice_of_Fire


TheEmeraldEmperor

10/10 civil engineering


peepeepoopoobutler

Idk if yalll know but $200,000(CAD) is cheap-average in terms of art installation. And they all end up “floats around for no reason”


bitemenow999

The ducky there is doing his/her best, get off its back


ITookTooLongToPick

Keep in mind that there are roughly 27.2M taxpayers in Canada, so that cost everybody just under 1 cent. Worth it.


DiscordWhy

He’s trying his best!


Lynx10202

I would pay for him with my own organs


Successful_Buy1520

Finally, something worth it


ron_sheeran

America: recreational works using tax money should be grand and last forever, like a national park or large statue Canada: yeah the people love this duck we made them pay for.


holytoledo42

I'd rather have a tourist attraction that helps generate millions of dollars than bombing brown people, giving tax cuts to the wealthy, having an impractical healthcare system that costs patients a fortune to get care and is actually much more expensive than universal healthcare, having a former president that spent about $141,000,000 of taxpayer money on golfing at his own resort, or having an insanely bloated military budget.


momof2middles

Don’t know all the details but the duck travels. I live in US and the duck was in Pittsburgh a few summers back on a river. Very cool and my daughters and mom loved it. It’s huge.


Mwvhv

Think of the size of the duck we could have if we didn't waste so much money on wars.


TheToeWarden

at least their taxes aren't going to turning middle eastern children into plasma


kevoisvevo

Jokes on them. I am going to steal it.


Rocket_Fuzz_2005

*Angry Herondale noises*


EmeraldInTheTopHat

This was the PERFECT meme format for this lmao


reasonable_kenevil

People in Canada get tangible things in exchange for their tax dollars? I'm all in.


MasterOfFate1

Yes.


Cheese_Demon_King

This image is wrong, all three should be uncontrollably laughing


N3ZZER

I wanna live in Canada, just to be able to fund that duck)


bagigess

I remember when this came to LA there acually is some good graffiti I saw of the duck


liudhsfijf

So cute


Tamorcet

I'd be proud to know that my government is putting my money into an investment such as this. Too bad I'm American...


opblaster123

The goverments: force you to pay tax also goverments: oh shit, lets fucking build a giant duck for no reason
