She should have gotten off of her own lawn.

This is one of those headlines where I'm not sure if I should applaud politely, as thought the submitter has just sunk a twelve foot putt on the eighteenth at Briarwood, or slap the submitter upside his fool head.
 
2012-03-16 08:14:30 PM  
I guffawed loudly, submitter. Good job! :-D

When will people realize that Marijuana kills! If you smoke grass, you will DIE!

Wow, that's two smoking headlines in a row. Nice job.

God willing, I will die from grass smoke. I've been working on this for nearly 20 years.

Subby, thank you for the laugh. We should be able to click [Funny] on the headlines.

But she went with a smile on her face.

Isn't it illegal to burn garbage these days? Poor old lady, I hope she went quickly.

Garbage and trash are very different and yard debris is neither although it could be argued it is trash

I burn trash and yard debris all the time. And the garden hose is next to me and on.

I see this as evidence of global climate change. I spent 4 long years in Outagamie county in the late '60s/early '70s and there was always a substantial amount of snow on the ground until the end of March; no way you could start a grass fire.

I second the motion. I don't care which one we do, but I'm tired of this indecision.

Make sure anything done to the grass was consensual. We don't want a case of date rake.

Nice. I always cringe when these posts get greenlit. You don't know her. She might have been a very nice person. There might be 100s of people impacted by the loss of someone they care about; but her biggest legacy will be a snarky comment for a moron who's parents didn't teach him to respect other people.

It appears you have mistaken this site for something other than it is. Whilst you may have been here for around 5 years, I do believe you have missed the point of it all.

I suggest a golf clap in honor and remembrance of the nice old lady who died to make this headline possible.

Great headline subby, although clearly stolen from a Rich Hall / Otis Lee Crenshaw bit about Jeff Porcaro.

Did she fear for her life from the long arm of the lawn?

Someone died hahahaha. There isn't even a funny catch. Someone is dead: hey let's be assholes and make their family read our asshole comments in google searches.

I don't claim to know what Fark is about. I don't claim to set standards for Fark or to have control of the Zeitgeist. Fark isn't a community or club. Fark is a news aggregator ... it's something I read. It's just this web page with some interesting stuff.

You appear to have a confused view of Fark.

Here you day it is just a news aggregator, just a web page with interesting stuff.

But per your other post, Fark is a powerful enough presence that can dwarf all other accomplishments of a woman's life so that after her death a snarky headline on Fark can sum up to a terrible legacy.

Trolling works better if you can stick to a theme.

Wife used to burn garbage all the time too, and no, there was nobody to pick the stuff up - not in the backwoods of Wisconsin. It looks like this story is from there. The thing I don't understand is why there is no snow in March in Wisconsin!

/Meanwhile, in Canada, not only do we have no snow, our lawn is already green. Weird year.

So it's your Frosh year in college and your going to now tell me how it is? I have no idea what music you listen too, what you like on TV, whether Johnny is farking Meg or if your period is late. I don't know you and I don't want to know you so just get over it.

Fark is a popular news aggregator and there is a bit of responsibility that goes with being popular. Allowing people to defame non-public figures does actually raise some hackles.
