Friday Funny

I once lived in a neighborhood in which one particular dog barked day and night, non-stop. If I opened my windows at night in summer, I couldn't sleep. I was so happy when I was finally able to move.

Now there's a viral news report of an Aussie vegan who sued her neighbors for barbecuing in their backyard, which she claims is "deliberate", as well as adults smoking and kids playing basketball in their backyard. Twice! Her 600-page brief (um, 600 pages is NOT brief...) was thrown out, and the neighbors have voluntarily removed the barbecue grill and asked the children not to play in the backyard anymore, but the woman is continuing to pursue vengeance and control.

News story comments were priceless. And for the record, I have vegetarian tendencies, I abhor cigarette smoke, and I never considered suing the dog owners in my barkhood.

"Well, yeah I would think one would 'deliberately' cook their food... it's not by accident, it's not by chance." - BatBat

"Yep, it IS deliberate. They wish to eat cooked food." - Mischa

"I invite my vegan nieces and neighbors over when we BBQ. No meat touches one section of my grill, that's where I BBQ their veggies. They never complain about meat smells or anything, and they never try to force their choices on us." - D

"I'll give up my barbecue when they pry my cold dead hands from it." - Cobra

"Put a 'For Sale' sign in your front yard. Your problem will be solved shortly." - Brian S

"Interesting article. The vegan seems quite unhappy. Perhaps if she were to enjoy a tasty cheeseburger and a cold beer, she'd be much more at peace with the world." - Mouthbreather

"When people do not like living with nearby neighbors, for whatever reason, they should consider moving to the Outback." - Curmudgeon

"Neighbors BBQing can be distressing because it smells so good and makes me hungry." - Dee

"Is there a Go-Fund-Me page to buy the neighbor one of those oil drum-size smokers for ribs and pork?" - Mongoose on the Loose

"Sounds like she needs more magnesium in her diet." - Jay

"What if they are grilling that new 'I Can't Believe It's Not Beef' stuff? It smells exactly like real beef when being grilled. Is that a problem too, given it's totally vegan fake beef? " - The Rational Libertarian

"Instead of giving all her money to lawyers, sell the darned house and move!" - Berr

"Wow. Sounds like veganism might lead to mental health problems." - AS

"And we thought the US was a litigious society." - Rogus

"I don't like it when my co-workers warm up fish in the microwave, so I take break and eat lunch outside." - Beckie

"Show 'em, girl!! Noisily slurp a kale smoothie and grill some tofu!" - B

"She would be a perfect candidate for the Mars mission." - Alfred G

"Some people are not happy until everyone else is as miserable as they are." - Lea

"Invite her over for a veggie burger, a game of basketball and one of those veggie Aussie beers and become good friends." - D and K

"Maybe her neighbors could put on a black bean or veggie burger and invite this friendless soul over." - Laurie
