For the latest instalment in his CDT series, cartoonist Crazy Crab of Hexie Farm shows a flock of ducks mounting an anti-sushi protest outside the famous Quanjude Peking roast duck restaurant. They brandish placards reading “Love The Hung Oven”, “Safeguard Quanjude”, “Safeguard The Hung Oven”, “Boycott Sushi” and “The Closed Oven is Ours Too”, oblivious to the fates of their brothers and sisters in the restaurant yard.
The hung oven (used at Quanjude) and the closed oven are the two methods of roasting Peking duck. The camera carried by one of the ducks is a reference to a photo of a protester wearing a “Boycott Japanese Products” T-shirt with a Japanese Canon camera slung around his neck.
