This sign in front of a house on Route 28 in Harwichport suggests that our friendly Great White Sharks should give up their present diet of Harbor Seal and turn instead to devouring our visiting tourists..
We know this ocean predator has been good for business, but this is the first time it's been suggested that tourists are good for dinner as well.
Last Over The Bridge Syndrome
Since the vast majority of Cape Codders are "Wash Ashores", who like most residents benefit greatly from our tourism, it's ironic that they try to "bite the hand that feeds them".
It's sort of "Will The Last Person Over he Bridge Please Pull It Up".
It reminds me of the bumper sticker of the past which read "Tourist Go Home", and is in the same vein as the one which reads. "Plovers Taste Like Roast Chicken".
The lowest blow was stuck in Chatham when a local wag suggest the town's motto should be, "A Small Drinking Town With a Fishing Problem".
Still, we must retain our sense of humor, and even ask, maybe one of you creative readers can come up with a recipe for Tourist Stew?
