What's with all the DUCKS?
Why It's An Honor To Be Given One... The Big Duck, a well-known landmark, started it all. This landmark sits by a road in Hampton Long Island and was happened upon during a MINI gathering some years ago. Ed “MAXAMINI” Smith was a whimsical man who many grew to love and frequented many events, drove a 2003 MCS, Electric Blue. During Ed’s visit to the Long Island icon, he was fascinated with The Big Duck and purchased a rubber duck at the souvenir shop. The duck immediately found a place on the antenna of #MAXAMINI. Ever since then, the duck became an icon. When Ed met you for the first time, he would present you with a #DUCK. When you pass a #MINI in your travels, take notice how many MINI owners sport a yellow rubber duck #mini #minicooper #minimafia #minilife #hamptons #rubberducky #minifan #miniusa #theduck
