Petition to ban the wearing of mullets in Montréal

Recently various petitions have been circulating the Diabetes Online Community (DOC), so today let’s pretend to write our own. 'We, The Undersigned' - tell us who you would write the petition to – a person, an organization, even an object (animate or inanimate) - get creative!! What are you trying to change and what have you experienced that makes you want this change? (Thanks to Briley of inDpendence for this topic suggestion.)

WE, the citizens of the city of Montréal petition the city to ban the mullet hairstyle onto our Metro system.  It has been discovered that people wearing a mullet cause increased giddiness and confusion amongst Metro users – who sometimes have dropped off the platform onto the tracks with disastrous results.  As well as creating havoc on the stairs as people try to get a good view of the mullet wearing person – it is highly unsafe. It has also been noted at the Port of Montréal – many flocks of seagulls gather around these people – causing havoc for cyclists and innocent bystanders walking by.

The history of the mullet goes back over 4,500 years, to the time of the Great Sphinx (more information on other mullet conspirator’s can be found at the following website link to broaden your knowledge of the seriousness of this hairstyle - http://www.plagueofthemullet.com/history-of-the-mullet.htm ).

We propose that the city of Montréal enforce this rule immediately – with the possible enticement of a $20 amount of money to help fund the cost of a good haircut.  Any assistance in helping set up this program will be readily available from the undersigned below if need be.

  1. As long as you don't ban the mullet from hockey arenas, I can support this. I feel like the sport has lost something ever since Barry Melrose and Jaromir Jagr cut their hair (yes, I know they have very little to do with Montreal).


I love having feedback. It's the only way I know if I'm helping you!
