5,000 Ducks Cross the Road in China and It’s No Joke

What do you get when 5,000 ducks cross the road?

In China, not the end of a joke but a real-life quack of a traffic jam.

Traffic in the Chinese city of Taizhou, nearly 200 miles from Shanghai, was brought to a halt by a farmer who decided his flock of ducks needed a break in a nearby pond.

The catch?  The farmer had 5,000 ducks and only a single cane to guide his waddling friends the nearly one-mile walk from their home to the water.

All cars and pedestrians came to a halt to avoid an accident and take in the spectacle, which happens quite often, according to the U.K.’s The Sun.

Nonetheless, the farmer proudly reports he hasn’t lost a duck yet.
