I Think This One Would Be Named Thwack

Apparently another bunch of collegiate drunks have stolen another of the Make Way for Ducklings statues from Boston Common.

If events proceed according to pattern, there will be a minor public uproar, followed by a new casting from artist Nancy Schön, a restoration of the missing duckling, and quite possibly a sheepish anonymous return of a now-superfluous piece of bronze. (One time this happened, thieves returned the duckling they had stolen the time before.)

Meanwhile, Irvine, California, gets public art like this, from the campus of the Blizzard videogame company. I bet no frat boys lever this thing off the ground.

(Thanks to Acephalous.)

UPDATE: Pack is back.
