I'm off to collect scrap metal in the alleys then.

/Round sure makes them easy to roll to the scrap yard.
//Lots of free wood to build fences too. You just have to grab on and pull and they come with free nails.

I actually had a similar problem with my neighbor and the Wild Licorice growing in my back yard. I just didn't care enough to confront her about it. I tended to think more of it as she was weeding my yard for free.

Meh, Kimmel's latest Baby Bachelor was by far the best late night sketch last night.

That was great. I still want to know the outcome of the great rhubarb scandal of 2013.

No shiat. I'm just now trying to see a psychiatrist and the earliest that people are saying they can see me is 3-4 weeks away a the end of the month. One place said that they've reached their quota of my insurance provider for the year and another said they had nothing until December.

I'm in a bad spot. It's very hard to function at times. Seemingly random bouts of emotional instability on top of constant lack of drive to do anything doesn't make for a good employee.

3-4 weeks...

Can I make a video of you breaking down and put it on YouTube, Mr. Buzzkill?

That sucked. But I too thought there would be some followup but instead I find that some articles, such as HuffPo's "'Crazy Rhubarb Lady' Terrorizes Iowa With Profane Tirades (VIDEO) (NSFW LANGUAGE)"have been taken down.

The only "new" stuff I found comes from some girl's twitter:
distilleryimage6.ak.instagram.com
Rhubarb lady taking a stroll! #GrinnellCeleb

Then again that twitter girl also seems a few stalks short of a bunch.

Remember only God can judge us. Forget the haters cause somebody loves ya.

I hate when my foods touch each other on my plate.. you have to keep that shiat separate.

God don't touch me down there it's delicate. Its like fine china, you don't want to play around with that

lol screw you Jake... you're not welcome in the Wil***ng household anymore. So go on and shut your jew mouth up.

There is also, of course, a Facebook page. It's mildly amusing, considering there is really only the one joke, namely that the lady is crazy. Which isn't really a joke, persay, but when it comes to things like this, the sane reactions include either laughter or tears. And nobody likes to cry.

I wonder if some Farker is behind it.

Yeah no I mean i would like the local newspaper to do a story so we get the back story and the follow up.

Yeah, keep poking a stick at 'em. There's no way that will turn out badly. No possible way.

There probably isn't much to follow up on (unless she is engaged in legal problems/battles), and any further publicity might only encourage people to come to see and harass the rhubarb lady.

I think this comment that appeared in the HuffPo article I mentioned above that got deleted probably covers enough:

Huckle Murry Man ( 8:27 PM)
I know the family who took this video. They are very sweet people, truly. This all went down a month or so ago in Grinnell, Iowa. The lady at the fence and the woman filming are daughters of the person who owns the property. The crazy woman lives down the road a stretch. She wanders around town with her trolley basket thing and is for the most part harmless. But, she does go bananas now and again. In this instance they caught sight of her stealing rhubarb and went to confront her and thus the magic moment you see. The crazy lady was paid a visit by the cops and they did collect the rhubarb back from her and gave her a warning. For those uninitiated, rhubarb in this region is like gold. It takes a long time for a patch to reach a level of maturity for it to be good to eat. Probably more than you wanted to know, but that's the facts, jack.

Since when does being vulgar and having an odd voice equate to being crazy or having a mental issue?

The only thing that woman says over and over again is that it is not private property and cursing every other word.

When you are older and are out to do as you please, you yourself just might say the fark with you all' I'm gonna get what I want.

Nope, I don't see this woman as being crazy or mental at the slightest.
Just vulgar and assertive to what she is doing in the moment.

I also don't see a problem with her taking the stuff so long as it is not on anyone's private property.

I've never had rhubarb.  It looks like red celery.  .. and poisonous too I think.

Well it's grown in soil that's part sand so it can drain properly.  You just have to wash it really well.  Strawberry-Rhubarb pie with an oatmeal butter crumb top is the STUFF man, no lie.  Served warm with ice cream and it's fookin' phenomenal.

But the stalks aren't.   Hey, did you know the fruit and the pit of the Cashew nut is POISONOUS?  Yet, we all eat cashews all the time! 

When have either of you ever eaten rhubarb?  How was it served?  Not being a smarmy ashwhole here, just curious.

You have to cook/bake it to neutralize the toxins.

I agree!  Thus, my comment to another about the pie recipe above. :D    

I LOVE rhubarb.  Stewed with cherries in the summertime and served as a side dish to grilled pork tenderloin is so succulent. Omg...    or even mixed with local honey and pureed together as a glaze to my own smoked pork, chicken, turkey or beef.  Heaven.  It's good stuff.  Sad that so many folks nowadays don't know how to prepare it since not many supermarkets carry it fresh.  But if you can find a farmers market and Google a recipe (I suggest some old Pennsylvania Dutch/Amish recipes posted online)  you can't go wrong. 

Rhubarb is tart, but when you mix it with sugar or honey it's just like that of cranberry sauce or granny smith caramel apples.   It's just better than Sour Gummy Worms or Sweet Tarts.  I promise you.

I didn't specify which part of the plant. However the talks still contain toxic oxalic acid but at a much lower concentration than the leaves. That's why eating it raw is so tart -- to discourage consumption.
 
2013-08-08 03:13:00 AM  
just wanted to note that the rhubarb incident can be found in the police call log:

Type: NT-NEIGHBOR TROUBLE
Time: 06/01/2013 10:14
Incident ID:
Notes: trying to take r/o's rhubarb
rhubarb has been returned to r/p.


Note that this incident did not generate an Incident ID. That seems to be reserved for cases where an officer can't resolve things on the spot, like the most serious crime in that log where a case of beer was stolen.
