Seminole Heights Declares “No Douche Bag Zone
From 83 Degrees Magazine the new media of Tampa Bay.

If you have been waiting for McDintons North to open up your hopes have been dashed because the Seminole Heights neighborhood has declared itself a no douche bag zone as of today.

Mark Zooburg lives in the neighborhood and says douche bags have been a major problem. He hopes the signs and increased police presence combined with a shoot to kill order enforceable by the local citizens will keep them out of his upscale neighborhood and back in their natural habitat of south Tampa.

The unusual move was approved by the City council yesterday at the behest of local neighborhood groups who report that with the rising popularity of the TV show Jersey Shore the South Tampa Douche Bags have become both larger in number and more aggressive.

When it was unclear if the order should be enforced by the police or animal control city council gave shoot to kill authority for individual residents of Seminole Heights to enforce the act themselves.

Widely heralded as a progressive step some residents of Seminole Heights such as Tom Deeter feel the law should go still farther. He wants more then a reactive policy rather he wants a controlled hunt of douche bags to limit and control their population as we do with deer, and forced relocation as we do with alligators.

“We relocate alligators that come into contact with human beings because they are more dangerous, the more bold gators. These douche bags coming out of South Tampa are just as bold and dangerous. We should shoot them and we should be relocating them to New Jersey and New York where they will be happy and not a threat to humanity” he says.

The concept of a controlled douche bag hunt does has wide appeal in the Seminole Heights and Town and Country neighborhoods who have jointly asked the State Fish and Wildlife department what the rules would be to issue hunting permits and a hunting season for douche bags in Tampa. A reply is expected next week.

Meanwhile on Davis Island residents are certain they are not douche bags but many privately wonder what will happen should they choose to leave their secluded and deluded little world. The DI Neighborhood association has asked for clear written guidelines defining a douche bag and has a team of lawyers ready to fight their meeting any definition written.

Residents of Channelside and downtown over-priced condos are in fear, refusing to leave their homes and are ordering out for meals till the crisis blows over. They hope they law will be repealed by the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals whom they have called via cell phone.

Known douche bag Troy “Liberty” Kenny says the fear is an overreaction. He and his crew never go north of Kennedy Blvd. and insisted that if the Seminole Heights residents come to South Tampa they will have to face “the gun show” which he followed with flexing and grunting.
