Tomorrow, January 13th, is a life-changing, momentous holiday - Rubber Duckie Day. If you are in doubt of the power of the promotional rubber duckie (yes, you know that the sole reason for your bathtub enjoyment is this little guy), simply listen to its theme song once and I can guarantee you will not be able to get it out of your head, perhaps for the rest of your life. Why does such a common yet personalized toy have such a hold on the American psyche? Is it that addictive squeak? The world may never know.
Weirdly enough, the Rubber Duckie Song actually made the Billboard hits chart in 1970, the year it appeared on Sesame Street. While it didn't hit #1, it did make an impressive showing at #16. January 13th is supposed to be Ernie Duck's birthday, hence the holiday. If you need to know more about rubber ducks for any reason, this site has an interesting FAQ.
