With Extra Duck

With Extra Duck is a Flickr photo set of famous paintings with yellow rubber duckies Photoshopped in.  They were uploaded by duck-obsessed London blogger Misty.  She has been adding these since May last year; so far the collection is 44 photos deep and has been viewed 5,866 times. 

My favorite is her take on WF Yeames' 1878 "And When Did You Last See Your Father?" (above).  Mostly because clearly, that was the missing element all along and that child is being interrogated about his wayward rubber ducky.  The contrast between onerous artistic integrity and frivolous pop culture is fantastic. Enjoy a few gems:
