in murphy's the streets are lined with shamrock's.
and once a year they host the duck races.
a fundraiser for the humane society.
you buy a duck for $5.
they put your duck in a huge garbage can.
and then dump them all off of a bridge.
the first duck to float to the next bridge is the winner.
second place gets a prize too.
duck #172 was retired this year.
after three years of winning in a row it was determined he was just too good.
poor duck #172.
