Could we harbor this duck?

It’s yellow. It’s six stories high. It’s occupying a harbor. And it makes everyone smile.

A huge rubber duck, a creation of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, is floating in Hong Kong’s harbor these days, having been showing up around the world since 2007. The duck, made of PVC material by a company that builds sails, has also visited Australia, Brazil, Japan and New Zealand.

You know what we’re thinking, right? That duck needs to come to Baltimore. Put it smack dab in the middle of the Inner Harbor.
