What an unauthorized Banner might look like.

"I'm not offending anyone. My neighbors are all supportive of breast cancer. I don't know why they're not," she said.

Well maybe that's why they don't like your ribbon.

The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy describes Home Owner Associations as:
"A bunch of mindless jerks who'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes."

She should just say it is a religious observation.

It is a modern sanitary version of marking the doorposts her home with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb, to tell God not to kill anybody in her house.

lets make this a religious freedom vs. HOA fight.

I recall a Dave Berg comic from an old edition of Mad Magazine.


A crotchety old woman has called the police. A cop shows up at her house. She says something like, "The man next door is taking a shower without closing his blinds!" The cop looks at the house next door and says, "Lady, it's a quarter mile away. I can't see anything."


The old lady holds up a pair of binoculars and says: "You have to use THESE!"


/Or something like that.

When I retire, I'm going to run the shiat out of an HOA with an iron fist. My neighbors will cower before me. Trolling IRL is way better than doing it on the internet.

No HOAs in my neighborhood. I'm actually glad, in spite of the weirdness.

peacheslatour: CruJones: peacheslatour: CruJones: I have a good HOA for my house in Memphis.  They fertilize and mow and edge the yards, keep up the roads and sewers , and throw a couple parties with free booze.  Other than that I never hear from them, though they did keep the crazy purple lady across the street from painting her house a violent shade of purple, which I was also ok with.

/she has a purple car and purple lenses on her glasses
//purple flowers, purple clothes, purple door on her house
///purple slashies

I think I once worked with this woman- is her name Sharon by any chance?

I don't remember, I rent it out since I moved. She did always invite me to play penny ante poker with her friends. This is on Mud Island, if that helps.

Nope, Seattle.  She actually lived in a purple house-boat on Lake Union.  Everything she had was farking purple.


For whatever reason I hate the color purple. Still I'd rather live next to a quirky whackjob like that than some uptight twat in a perfectly manicured cookie cutter development.

This text is now purple: Gunboat: CSB

   I was a trial lawyer in a past life.  Crazy lady had a pet bobcat, and her HOA had a "no wild animals" clause.  Crazy lady said bobcat was a "domestic" animal because it shiats in a box and eats cat food.
   HOA hired me to sue the lady.  We won at trial, but let me say that picking the jury was super-interesting, as the hatred for HOAs is palpable.
   Crazy lady put the jury verdict on appeal, and a friend of mine successfully handled it at the appellate level.  Reported opinion is here:  http://opinions.aoc.arkansas.gov/weblink8/0/doc/273262/Electronic.asp x

You're part of the problem. Hopefully you had a chance to visit your kid in the terminal cancer ward afterwards.

jumac: HOA can be nice if they stay to just roads/command areas. It when get to many people living and voting in charge who want to get into saying what color your house can be and if you can build this or that or park a work car/truck in your yard that they get out of hand..

This is what has happen to every hoa in my area.  I am so glade I don't live in one.  If I ever do it be in one that the town has limit the HOA power.(if there are any like that).

I know a town near me is looking into the legal aspect of that.  The town is happy of the fact that they are very owner friendly with property.  They think that a person should be able to change and use their land as they see fit to enjoy it. I mean with in reason.  They don't want people turning their yards in to junkyards or making unsafe buildings.

They are atm last I knew looking into crafting rules and such for the HOA that state that the HOA power is limit to roads/command area and that the HOA can't say what a person dose with their house/land or what they park or put on it.


Sick dude, just sick.

Theaetetus: This thread is worthless without pictures:
Miss Karp said she received a letter Thursday night from the association at Regent's Park in Naples demanding she take her down the pink ribbon from her wall.
"It's on the inside of my entry-way," she told the station.

Are we talking about a wall inside a house and visible through a window next to a door:

Or are we talking about a giant ribbon inside a screened-in porch:

Either way, who gives a Fark?

Actually the article suggests an appropriate solution; it says that she is "standing her ground".  Since this is Florida, if she's white she can just shoot the HOA and claim to have been "standing her ground".

Zeeba Neighba: SquiggsIN: I really should drive my truck more but, it gets crap for gas mileage.

Yep...mine gets driven only when the snow/mud is bad. Otherwise it sits outside because of the bad gas mileage. (But at least I can park it out there!)

Gunboat: because it shiats in a box and eats cat food.

This sounds like some toddlers I know....



That sounds like some FARKers I know....

ManateeGag: Bob Falfa: ManateeGag: one of the many reasons I won't move anywhere with a "home owner's association"

No kidding. I once rented a house with an HOA. The owner almost got in a lot of trouble for having his roof shingles replaced with a "wrong color" shingle. Not sure how he got out of that one.

my yard looks like a bomb went off because the crap weather.  it hasn't been warm enough to do anything.  if we had an HOA, they'd find the shiat out of us.


Are you lost? Are you hiding from them because of your messy yard? I don't understand.

Well tbh I hate those stupid ribbons. All colors. They are all over the place. There's like 20 of them, and that's just for cancer.

I can't wait for the yellow cancer ribbon folks to duke it out with the yellow soldiers ribbon folks. I'm sure there's gonna be a lawsuit over that.

And as for HOAville, go on taking rights away from homeowners. Used to be SCOTUS ruled that you can't sell or trade or waive your rights away. But I guess since the KKK stopped that tactic it became legal.

Not quite so bad as having a blue house with a blue window... And a blue corvette.  And everything is blue for you.

There's not much point in putting an "awareness" ribbon somewhere inconspicuous, so by definition we can probably assume that it was actually placed in a highly noticeable position.

Then again, there's not much point to these ribbons in the first place.  It's not like anyone see it and says to themselves "Breast cancer?  What the heck are they talking about?  I better go look up this strange and mysterious disease."
