Feelin' Alright on Friday Night in Old City

Hello fellow Shut the Duck Up! supporters,

Phil Glass here, one of Shut the Duck Up!’s most ardent supporters. As Walt mentioned in a previous blog entry, I’ll be posting to the Shut the Duck Up! blog whenever I’ve got news or thoughts to share about those nasty Duck Boats. Walt couldn’t make it to the library today to write his normal post, and we know you’ve been eagerly awaiting more Shut the Duck Up! news, so I figured I’d give it a go and write my first ever blog entry.

Four Shut the Duck Up! campaigners(including Walt and myself) found themselves in Old City on Friday night, ready to spread the word about the Shut the Duck Up! campaign. We each posted ourselves to the heavy traffic area near the Continental Restaurant at roughly 11 P.M. Each of us was armed with a Shut the Duck UP! sign along with flyers expounding on our various qualms with the ducks and their unfair marketing tactics. Walt stood at a small homemade podium, megaphone in hand, wildly shouting a variety of slanderous suggestions about the ducks. He received plenty of drunken cheers and some of the more sober onlookers even stopped to take a flyer and talk about the campaign.

Sadly, Walt was eventually silenced due to the intervention of the Philadelphia Police. We called it a night after that. All in all, though, it was a successful protest. We turned plenty of heads and made enough positive impressions that I’m sure some of our new friends will be turning up at the Shut the Duck Up! protest in the spring. And besides, nothing shows dedication like working hard on a Friday night! It felt good to be out there, supporting a worthy cause and showing everyone just how much Shut the Duck Up! means to all of us.

I’ll be posting again soon, but hopefully Walt will be back next time because I know you all love him so much. Who wouldn’t?

Here’s to Shutting the Duck Up! Thanks for all your continued support.
