NO MORE QUACKING!!


Hello Everybody,

So, today at 10am we finally had our first Shut the Duck Up! protest at Race street and Delaware Ave and it was amazing. Thank you to the wonderful people who turned out this morning despite the weather. We had a nice crowd and one of our campaign members excited the cars going past with his duck suit! We also had lots of news support from Channel 6, Channel 3, Fox 29, and KYW 1060 who had the chance to interview myself, and some of our protesters, so definitely keep an eye out during the local news this evening! Everyone was shouting at the duck boats as they entered the water while traffic honked in support. We definitely made our point and I really feel we are really going to make a difference. THANK YOU AGAIN! and remember, SHUT THE DUCK UP!

There are bigger problems in the City of Philadelphia then elementary school kids quacking on Ride The Ducks.
The fact that this is getting news coverage is a waste of time & news resources.

Walt - you need to either go back to Jersey or get a job. You are seriously a pathetic individual.

I just watched your video after reading about the protest. I really think you have some issues that you need to deal with other than tourists making quacking noises. Get yourself some psychological help, and if the quacking bothers you that much, then maybe you should move.

If you protest only because are you are a passionate person and you just need an outlet, there are many causes worth fighting for such as the homeless, organ donor awareness, or children's cancer. Sometimes when you help others with their problems, you find that your own problems may suddenly seem much smaller. Put your energies into something noble instead of something as pathetic as people making quacking noises...

I am not posting this message to mock you or to be a jerk. I really think you need to evaluate what is important, and make a life change...

Peace!
