While in Florida, we were at an ice cream shop by a beach south of St. Augustine waiting in line. Jeeps are everywhere in that area.......... there were a couple Wranglers in the small parking area in front of the ice cream shop. Both had ducks on the dash, one had two rows of them lined up and sitting in the driver's seat was a fellow with a large frame - the sort you'd not want to tangle with in a dark alley - arms not much smaller than Shaq's, burly, scruffy hair, beard........... it reminded me that you can't judge a Jeep owner/driver by the ducks on their dash. My wife saw him - and his Jeep, just after getting her 3rd duck, the second in that hour, and was happy to see such a fellow sitting there with rows of ducks on his own Jeep dash.

Ours is the purple (reign) JLU - we are guessing that it was the guy who drove the one next to us who gave my wife her third duck that week - the second in that hour. She'd gotten one at another beach not even an hour earlier. When he drove away, we could see a duck sitting on the door handle of my wife's JLU.

Certainly all types of folks out there enjoying things their way. I've seen similar occurrences in our local Jeep circles. It's pretty entertaining. Like I said - not for me, but I'm not gung-ho against it. I just collect my duck and the kids get a new bath toy.

Now - if the kiddos wanted ducks to give away and were with me more in the Jeep - I'd let let them have at it 🤷‍♂️

I just had an idea. If you don’t want to receive ducks, put one on your door handle and walk away. Then anyone giving out ducks will see yours has been done already. 😁

I like to glue ducks to the hoods of random Ford Broncos with PL construction adhesive……just kidding……or am I…..

In all honesty, between the ducks the wave it’s a little harmless fun. And considering that literally everything is tribal and political now, it’s kind of refreshing that this doesn’t have some larger point. I’d give ducks to Toyota and Ford folks on the trail too. Why not.

The other day at the local Walmart. I went to duck another JT. The owner caught me. And preceded to rip me a new one. :facepalm: Saying that I was f#$kin' with his Jeep, and that he going to shoot me if I put the duck on his JT. I asked if he wanted the duck. He said f$%k NO! I told him what an asshole he was. And what I was doing was a act of kindness. Spreading the cheer. Then I said. If you were to reach for you gun. I will drop you where you stand. I had already placed my hand on the grip of mine when he said that he was going to shoot me. The look on his face changed big time when he looked to see where my right hand was.

I had already ducked 2 other Jeeps close by before this.

Reports like this, coupled with what I've seen regarding the reactions of people to stuff in game shows and things of no real world importance tells me that if AI doesn't get us, we'll end up killing ourselves off. Attitudes like that, I just don't get. And people going ballistic because a game show contestant made certain gestures every time he spoke - what the heck is going on???
How is placing a tiny rubber toy on a door handle or whatever "f'ing" with a vehicle?
Sorry, he needs a serious attitude adjustment or someone is going to end up ending him.
Maybe his parents never let him play with his rubber duckies in the tub and now he's triggered every time he sees one?
The dude needs to lighten up - it's just a toy. It can't harm his "precious"

I was being real nice until he said that he was going to shoot me. I already have one bullet hole in my back.

AI or us…kind of the same difference, but I agree with you. I’d genuinely be shocked if we don’t off ourselves before the planet (partially self-induced) or an asteroid has a chance to finish us off.

While shows like Jericho (2007) and The Walking Dead are fictional, I do think they do a great job of depicting how the average person would handle a civilization altering crisis. That is to say that a LOT of folks are assholes just waiting to be unleashed.
