    ahh … 25,000 ducks * $5 /duck is $125,000. And they are giving away $1,000,000 at the end? Wouldn’t it be better to can the duck race and just give the prize money to the Special Olympics?

    In fact, if you’ve got a lot of ready cash buying 25,000 or so ducks seems like a pretty good bet.

    I just bought the Quack Pack (5 Ducks). Two of which will be festooned with “BigPicture Blog” labels. If a BP Duck wins I will donate the money to Barry as long as he uses it to crush the evil forces of Socialism and maybe spruce up the blog :)

  3. I read the rules — they only payout the $1m if a golden duck wins . . .
