I think it would be helpful to have a shorthand link to the duckboat for use in comments, similar to the ones for meta and faq and the like.

This would encourage the linking of the article to help new users in a fun way, and get them used to the community here.

I'll be posting links to it, I'd just find it more convenient if there was a short link.
