Here is the joke about ‘fowl’ play that you were hoping for.
Our favourite giant inflatable yellow duck is no more. The floating fowl deflated late on Tuesday night, for unknown reasons, probably terrorism [Ed.: probably not terrorism].
The duck is due to remain on display in Hong Kong harbour until June 9 and many suggested that its brief late night deflation was part of regular checks by the organisers. Harbour City confirmed as much on Twitter:
The Rubber Duck needs to freshen up. Stay tuned for its return. twitter.com/hkharbourcity/…

So the duck will return, mightily. D2: The Mighty Ducks.
