Hook A Duck just isn’t the same anymore, in fact I boycotted this once iconic fun fair activity in Southsea in protest ….
….. firstly there were no ducks with numbers painted on their bottoms, secondly there was no magical ring of moving water for the said ducks to swim round, there were just characters from the Simpsons stood on wooden blocks, what’s that all about? I have to concede that there were hooks to yank Bart or Marge round the neck with, but it cost £2 a time and you chose your own prize, no skill, no element of chance, no tantalising moment when you find out which row you can pick your “prize” from, nothing! To be honest I would have had more fun and value for money if I’d gone over to Poundland and spent £2! I think I must be turning into a grumpy old man!
In the end I decided to spend £1 of my money steering one of the Pirate Boats.
