One neighbour without a sense of humour ruins it for all. Typical.

This is America! We have free speech! They have no right to demand that! Oh wait, it's England where you have no rights. Carry on.

/why don't they mind the twisty poo next to the finger?

One complaint in 8 years does not equal a public outrage. Damn, someone needs to remove the arborvitae from their ass.

Remember that the story is in the Daily Fail. I'd give it about 85% chance that there was no complaint, no cop, no stuffy neighbor, nothing. They just found a guy with some rude shrubbery, took some pictures, and made up the rest.

Everything in the Daily Fail should be assumed to be false until proven otherwise.

In America the DPW would give a no-bid contract to the mayor's brother in law who would charge $1,000 to send a kid with a chainsaw to cut off the finger. The city would put a lien on the house for the cost of removal.

It's all because they have a peculiar habit of putting an unnecessary u in certain words. Blimey, a dingo ate my baby. Cheerio.

Pretty sure you have your countries mixed up.

Transplant it

Haha, but you got the wrong thing. This is about a girl who was deaf, dumb and blind and played pinball in an attic in Amsterdam (why they call it that is nobody's business but the Turks, who will rip you off in a heartbeat, but if you haggle you can pay half. Trust me, you don't want to sit at the buffet for four hours. You will be asked to go now, no trouble, roundeye).

Just say it's a religious symbol. Then carve a little one to wear around your neck. If it goes to court he can claim his religious rights are being trampled. Really, he's not doing anything but wishing everyone a rather pleasant experience. Just be sure to do it safely and that no one says NO.

Why is it that articles like this never have an explanation from officials as to why something that most people like or don't give a care about should be removed because of the one or few who are offended by it?

I thought THIS was the British finger...

Or are they like Canada, a country of two (sign) languages?

Instead of complaining the neigbor needs to buy a bucket of Glyphosate.
Then when it turns brown introduce a bic lighter.

Problem solved.

Walker: /why don't they mind the twisty poo next to the finger?


I was wondering that. The finger is at least funny, but the bush to the left of it is just butt-ugly.

Looks like they got his answer before they asked the question.

I've never understood why anyone cares about or gets worked up over "the finger."

skinink:

That is the desktop on one of my work PC's. I did take the finger off to make a fist but everyone *knows* no complaints in many years and I get a lot of drive-by traffic :)

If he has to cut it down, he should re-sculpt it to resemble a giant vagina in honor of the offended party.

Bring us a shrubbery! A nice looking one, but not too expensive. Then bring us another shrubbery and place it beside the first one, only slightly higher so they the two-level effect with a little path running down the middle. Then you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest wiiiiith...A HERRING!

Thuja (arborvitae) of some kind, I'd bet.

Inflatable Rhetoric: I've never understood why anyone cares about or gets worked up over "the finger."


Since it simply means you can still pluck a longbow, neither do I.

I mean, it's not like shoving your fist up a French arse.
Even w/ a black glove on yer fist, you can wave it on TV.

I thought the Brits didn't use the middle finger as a rude gesture? It thought they used what I call the 'backwards peace sign' with the two-finger thing as their one-handed rude gesture.

Hmmmmm...I did not know that fat people existed outside of the US.
