This "Duck Duck Jeep" thing sounds as silly as adults playing "Pokeman Go".

the problem is that it something that doesnt happen where i'm at. jeep waves is the only thing that happens with jeepers. oh yeah having jeep talks about each other modded jeeps. thats about it. however i'll pass the torch to someone that want to take up on that offer.
Please don't say that too loudly. They'll end up here.
This reminded me of something from years ago when we lived in WI. Every Halloween someone in our neighborhood would start a “Boo” campaign. They’d leave some treats on your porch with a “Boo“ sign and some long write-up. The gist of it was you were supposed to put the “Boo” sign on your door, enjoy the treats, and then make a new “Boo” sign and a treat bag and “Boo” someone else in the neighborhood. This went on until all houses had a “Boo”.

My wife hated it, and she loves Halloween. Needless to say she made a new “Boo” sign and delivered it along with the treats we had received to some other neighbor. She then kept the “Boo” sign we received and every year she hung it on our door as soon as she noticed the process starting again. This way we never had to deal with the process because we had already been “Boo-d”. Years later we moved to GA and she almost lost it when she saw it happening in our new neighborhood. Lol.
This is the pro strategy. When my son was born I got an entire bag of small rubber ducks in hockey jerseys. I grabbed one in an orange jersey and have had it on my dash since. Maybe this will work the same way.

#Ducked twice this weekend, (each in Keller and Roanoke) DFW North Texas area. Rather have a koozie...more useful.

AT least you got a cool one. Most I see are just boring ass Yellow ducks.

Decals? Oh, that'll end bloody. I can just see it now, idiots tagging jeeps with duck decals.
This is pretty illegal. Has been since the 70's I think. If i recall correctly the legend goes political reps for candidates would go to large parking lots and stick bumper stickers on cars.

Nope! Kids are too much trouble and if she wont leave pavement that means she wont play in the mud.
.... are.... are you still talking about Jeeps? You're still talking about Jeeps. Right?

All jokes aside:
This was brought up in one of the Jeep Facebook Groups I'm in. A couple of the founders were talking about it. It was kind of disturbing, the amount of really angry, violent, borderline threats that came out of it. I talked to one of them, she said they never leave the ducks inside without the owner's permission - it's usually just on the doors or wiper or something. I told them it's probably not the best idea with COVID. It's a silly game, sure- I don't really see the point, but It's relatively harmless.

That said- I get both sides. I don't really want people leaving stuff for their "Jeep group" on my rig. The ducks are kind of funny, and I can clean them and give them to my kids, sure. But I don't want my rig posted on the internet by someone else. I'll take pics all day and post them, but that's my choice. I don't really want others posting pictures of my rig and associating it with something I'm not a part of;

A few jeep groups in my area wont shut up about it on facebook. I take my jeep out on trails every weekend and see a lot of jeeps... I've never been 'ducked'.

I think it's mostly the soccer moms and pavement princesses doing this.
And this is the problem. Just because I own a Jeep doesn't make us automatically friends. Plenty of other people have kids- that doesn't make me automatically friends with other parents. In fact, I avoid most of them like the plague because they're normies... and well... I don't want to be associated with normal people.

While I bear no ill will towards these Duck Duck Jeep kids, it does kind of make me sad- because there are more of these people out there with Jeeps trying to be social media influencer/ celebs with goofy stuff like this, vs. actually looking to go off roading. If they spent half their efforts learning, getting organized, joining up with legit off road groups, and fighting public land closures- it would be much more useful. Instead, they spend the afternoon out and about putting rubber ducks on Jeeps. Again, harmless, and I get it- but ultimately what is the point? IT's like the people who dump $30k into a loaded Rubicon and then sit in a parking lot at Dunkin Donuts shining it with a cloth and talking with others like that, focusing only on "meet ups". OK- whats the point again? It's just not something I'd do.

the beauty and curse of a relatively free society is that people get to buy things and use them however they want. As noted, the bigger problem is that for many, documenting an experience has outstripped the actual experience itself. There is a difference between "look at this..." and "look at me looking at this..." The latter is what gets more clicks these days but loses the meaning in my book. Thankfully no one forces me to open FB or Twitter or IG - another perk of a relatively free society.

I was watching a documentary of WWII the other day and wondered to myself, wtf happened to "men" since then.
A real strong person wouldn't be a pathetic snowflake like the people here losing their shit over 5 cent rubber duckies lol.

It reminds me of my favorite search engine, DuckDuckGo!

What's wrong with Pokemon Go? Some of my friends used that to make their walks more interesting. Then again, there are idiots that try to play it while driving. :D

As for taking a picture of my jeep with a little rubby ducky on it.. hmm.. sure whatever.

For the thing about stickers: I imagine that's for someone to put on their own jeep.

FYI The koozie people usually stick them under your windshield wiper. I think that would be a bit more invasive than leaving a ducky sitting on your hood lol.

I keep thinking about the WWII comment and this nails it.

What would they do? Probably something equllly silly and harmless. Like Kilroy.

Some of y’all need to lighten the fuck up a bit.

Ahh, as of 2018 those are required to say what exactly (well, at least one ingredient) that the label is warning you about.

Ironically, since it's a kid toy, it's unlikely that (responsibly sourced) rubber duckies will have chemicals in them that would require a prop 65 warning. Now, I'm not sure about those ones that you'd buy by the 100 on aliexpress lol..

My wife just told me about Jeep ducking a few days ago. She's on a Renegade forum and saw it there. What's the big deal? So someone puts a rubber duck on your hood, bumper, door handle. It's not like it's going to hurt it. They're not grinding it into the paint so it's not going to scratch it. If someone ducks my Jeep I'll laugh, clean the duck and let it ride around somewhere in the Jeep. I don't have FB so I won't be doing any ducking myself but I'm certainly not going to get mad about it.

This is harmless fun, why is everyone loosing their minds over it?

So many worse things in the world to get irate about. This is just a fun gifting thing to build community. Not gonna get upset if someone ducks my Jeep. Touching the winch - that's something to get me upset.
Agreed, 100%


Decals? Oh, that'll end bloody. I can just see it now, idiots tagging jeeps with duck decals.
Um... I'm pretty sure the decal is for your own Jeep, or they're small decals to put on the duck instead of using sharpie.
That said, I agree that I'd be mad if they put a decal on my Jeep. A rubber duck, not so much.

What's wrong with Pokemon Go? ...
Seriously. I've never played it, but I play video games and have been since the Atari and Intelevision. How many people did Pokemon Go it get out of the house? A lot, I bet. It's harmless fun (assuming you don't play while driving of course). There's nothing "unmanly" about playing a video game (mobile or otherwise). Ironically, if you're so insecure about you masculinity that you can't play a game, you've shown how immature you are.

Soo, a bunch of people are going around placing a rubber duck on jeeps with a cute note, telling you to have a good smile at it and all you can do is bitch about it? With all the chaos going on right now, some people are trying to be silly and bring joy and you act like someone is “vandalizing” your Jeep. It’s too bad the same people can’t help you pull that stick out of your arse!

RIGHT?
Also the bright green Duck with the pink Mohawk that was posted. Very Punx. Much Punk rock points.

This is exactly the kind of stuff that makes stuff like this kinda funny and cool. Someone COULD have just went with a regular duck and the hashtag, but they went above and beyond. I like that.

I’ve had a rubber ducky with my car for years. You’re telling me I inadvertently stumbled onto a Jeep thing?!
