New Ally In War On Duck Boats
I'm all for fighting against the horrible duck boats, and, although it's a bit too serious for me, here's a new partner in the fight:
Here's the dude's his petition:We the undersigned do hereby call for respect from the Philadelphia Ride the Ducks Tour Company. The Ride the Ducks Tours are loud, noisy, obnoxious and an ear sore to local citizens of the Philadelphia area. By blasting music, shouting over a loud PA system, and encouraging the tooting of “quackers,” the Ride the Ducks Tours consistently disrupt the life of the average Philadelphian and are violating a number of noise pollution laws. We ask for Ride the Ducks Tours to work for a better relationship with Philadelphia residents and by agreeing to three guidelines:
1) When driving through a residential area, Ride The Ducks Tours will respectfully lower their music, exhibit a more restrained use of the PA system, and encourage a more mindful use of “quackers.”
2) Ride the Ducks Tours will revise their tour routes of Philadelphia to minimize exposure to the residential community.
3) Ride the Ducks Tour guides will no longer encourage tourists to “quack” at individuals on the street.
Eh, go ahead, fight the duck boat people. The War on Duck Boats will one day be won!
