A funny and depressing story that has been making it’s way around the world concerns a vegan woman, Cilla Carden, in Australia who felt the need to sue her neighbors for cooking meat and having some kids that play basketball. Where is there to go with this story? Where to even start? How does this woman deal with life? What does she do when passing some crows eating roadkill? On the upside at least the Supreme Court of Western Australia threw out her room temperature IQ lawsuit. To quote Ms. Carden: “It’s been devastating, it’s been turmoil, it’s been unrest, I haven’t been able to sleep,” Well, it looks as though she’ll just have to deal with it.
It seems that some people that still have their sense of humor intact came up with a Fakebook group called “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden” with the following mission statement: “Cilla Carden has a problem with her neighbors cooking meat on their BBQ, because she’s a vegan. Recently taking them to the Supreme Court!” and “Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition, join us for a community BBQ in protest of her actions, and help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK.” I tried searching for the Fakebook group page but was unable to access it though it is still the top search result. Thousands of people responded to the nascent plan and since Ms. Carden couldn’t take being the butt of a joke pulled out the lawyer card again. In the words of Mr. Hammond (who I’m certain is ecstatic about his litigious client): “Any person who seeks to attend Ms Carden’s property on Saturday October 19, 2019 or at any other time in relation to this event or matter will be referred to the WA Police on the ground of trespass,”
I actually didn’t realize how many exceptional stories there are about the exceptional behaviors of these “animal rights activists” types and I may have to type up a few more blog posts about this later. For now I’ll leave you some story links and a few of the more interesting comments.
