Fox will call the boy a liberal, and say it is simply Christmas fighting back.

YouPeopleAreCrazy: OK, so some kid is apparently allergic to some varieties of pine trees.

Why are we reading about this?

There's going to be a quiz next week.

Pity about that. A real Christmas tree can really spruce up a home.

But she admitted that her parents have a real pine - so when she and Theo visit, they have to stay in a different room.

Wow. Grandma and grandpa are dicks.

Babwa Wawa: AbbeySomeone: I call lbullsh*t on this. If he were truly that allergic he would have a reaction once inside the house

Nah. My daughter has a no shiat allergy to peanuts, but we feed my son PBJ at the same table. Since the first grade, she sits with kids at the school who may or may not have PBJs. She knows not to eat anyone else's food and wash her hands after lunch, and that's it.

However, I do concur on the AW bit - there's zero reason to keep them out of friends' houses if there's a tree there - unless the kid is somehow mentally debilitated he ought to be able to regulate himself. It is, after all, a six foot f*cking plant, and it's usually in a corner.

I imagine it depends on the allergy and if bits of whatever it is can become airborne. Peanut butter does not become airborne unless you throw it. Pet dander and pollen spread through the air with ease.

FunkOut: InspectorZero: Ugh. White people problems.

Yup, because there's no black people out there allergic to dairy or shellfish.

They make Christmas trees out of clam dip now?

Wait a minute, are you saying that if I wasn't white, I would be immortal? Of all the racial luck...
