DrVoice: The ACLU is much more consistent about their mission than, say, the NRA.

Not at all... The NRA is all-guns, all-the-time. The ACLU would find it tough to match that kind of consistency. I mean, they even acknowledge that slander or libel may not be protected under the first amendment, while the NRA says that you can shoot your neighbor if they look at you strangely.

As a huge fan of freedom of speech, I really hate douchebags. It is quite a conundrum.

msimon8: I am shocked...SHOCKED this happened in Livingston Parish

What an awful hell hole that place is. I thought Baton Rouge was horrible. It is, of course. I thought I'd explore the vicinity ... then I happened upon Dennum Sprangs. If you're trailer trash, a junkie, crackhead, toothless prostitute, Bible thumper, horrible racist, or all of the above, then this is the place for you!

*Not everyone there is this way, but you'll fit in much better if you are.

Meh. The business park I work in has a tall bush with one short thick one on either side.

I tell people it looks like the place is flipping off the neighborhood. But really, it looks like a penis at full salute complete with testicles.

I know her method is more direct. But I wonder who would have caught on if she arranged them in form of an actual bird with a spatula undeneath.

stuffy: My sister kids once spelled "shiat" on the roof in lights. She made them take it down before we got pics. :(

I kinda get the idea of sister wives but I have no idea how this might work

ongbok: Yes they can. Put up a giant sign that say fark in your front lawn and see what happens. It is called obscenity laws.

I once carved a pumpkin that had both a middle finger and a "big fark" you on it. Nobody called the police and local teens spared it in smashing raids. It just rotted away on the porch. To be fair it wasn't on my porch, I chose one of the many abandoned houses. Really just to confuse folks if anything. Hey I was young and hadn't discovered drugs or sex.

It's a camel. A Goddamned camel. A camel with a wise nam on it. There's always a camel in nativity scenes. I just plain fail to see what all the hullabaloo is all about.

Anyone else notice the poll in the right side margin?
Should wearing 'saggy pants' be illegal?
57% say yea/ 43% say nay

Now I find the saggy pant thing ridiculous, but a poll favoring legislation???? Glad the south has found a solution to all those other social hazards.

This, it's not like it was a cross or something.
