Breaker one-nine, this here's the Rubber Duck

So my suspicions were true, these things contain bacteria.

Been telling Mrs Minivanman for months if not years about these yucky ducks and all to no avail - but now at long last she might just listen and throw the damned things out, grandchildren or no.

Re: Breaker one-nine, this here's the Rubber Duck

I had a collection of rubber ducks and squeezy bath toys for my toddler. After a few months the inside of them would have visible black stuff on the inside no matter how much I cleaned them, it would always return. The big rubber duck was the worst and everytime you squeezed it, more little bits came out of it. I have thrown them all out now and we play with foam letters and numbers instead Smiley

Scary thing is, they also make rubber ducks to "entertain" ladies in the bath, so if they're getting skanky inside the duck, what's it leaving behind on/in the women playing with them?? Shocked

Fill them with gin, it'll kill the germs.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
