Sarah Childs of Denham Springs, LA is apparently in some sort of feud with her entire neighborhood and so she used this holiday season to display her dissatisfaction. I know this is childish and ridiculous but there's something about it that makes me happy. Wouldn't the world be a better place if we all settled disputes via twinkle lights? Am I onto something here? No? Very well.
The police ordered Childs to take the giant illuminated middle finger down on two separate occasions, but U.S. District Judge James Brady issued a temporary restraining order barring city officials from interfering with the display. The ACLU got up in it too, saying that Childs is in the clear as far as the law is concerned.
Oooh... you know what would be even more awesome? If the middle finger slowly went up and down and next to it, there was a clockwork elf operating a crank.
Man, I'm just sorry I didn't think of it first! Anyone who knows me will tell you that flipping the bird is what Lauras do best. (Also, that is a soundboard of me singing the Mr. Belvedere theme song that my friend Wayne made. JUST HAVE FUN WITH IT/IM SO SO SORRY)
