Chinese Toad

Since Florentijn Hofmanis' Giant Inflatable Yellow Rubber Duck visited Hong Kong last year, the Chinese have been going ape on jumbo inflatables. This Giant Toad in Beijing's Yuyuantan Park has caused a furore, because wags on Chinese social media have mocked its similarity to former president Jiang Zemin (inset) who was nicknamed "The Toad". The Communist Party is miffed about this mockery and has banned references to the toad (CLICK).
