What’s up duck?
The 40 foot tall colossal rubber duck currently floating in the rivers of Pittsburgh has taken the city and even the country by storm. After all, it’s the first time this art price has been in the United States. So, I got to thinking. Maybe it would be fun if someone could get the duck’s perspective on the whole experience. That being the case, I decided to use my own personal journalistic background along with my artsy side to create the first ever fictional interview with the world’s largest duck.

Me: Hello Ducky, thanks for agreeing to do this interview.
Ducky: My pleasure.
Me: What do you think about our city of Pittsburgh?
Ducky: I love it here, this place is quacktastic.
Me: How about the reaction you’ve gotten from the locals?
Ducky: It quacks me up to see how much buzz there is about me.
Me: Did you know anything about Pittsburgh before making your way here?
Duck: I did some research and learned a lot from WQED and Rick Sebak duck-umentaries.
Me: Have you seen the local news coverage?
Ducky: A little but I mostly tune in for the feather forecast.
Me: Have you taken in any of the local culture?
Ducky: Sure, there’s a lot of fun stuff to do here. And the food is great! Of course, I’m still partial to simple old cheese and quackers.
Me: Thanks for your time and have a wonderful rest of your visit here in the steel city.
Ducky: Quack to ya later.
