Why not just buy a new one? Can't be more than a couple bucks.

First of all, NOT all rubber duckies are crewated equal. Second not all ducks are the right size.

And third, my duck was put on BEFORE i had a hitch. Getting that little guy off the bumper would be a real btch, and getting a new one on would be even a bigger btch. He is bolted to the bumper using a series of washers...... he wont come off. ever.

I think age is a beautiful thing and the duck should be proud of all the wisdom he holds.
