Rubber Love

2017-02-19 19:36:58 by sorohanro

I fell in love with... rubber ducks. I want to buy those but my wife told me she'll kick me in the balls if I do it.

As much as I seem a masochist sometimes, I won't risk, but here's some links for future reference to the awesome rubber ducks.

First one is a Batman duck, the one that started my passion:

The next one is going to space. As a kid I wanted to be an astronaut.

Robots. Robots are cool, in a Jetsons kind of way.

And the last one is a classsic. You should always respect classics.

Remember the band I was playing in? The one which organized the remix contest and got 3 Newgrounders to be signed to a record label? Well, here they start an European tour:
