My Island: A New Inhabitant

For those of you that are new to this blog, I have a virtual island. No, you really don't want to go there. Why? I send people there that I think really don't have a purpose in life other than to annoy me and others. Here is a link to the first post I did about it in case you have any questions.
Here is what the population looks like right now:

Flying Stand-by:
Jamie Lynn Spears
Elizabeth Hasselback

On the island:
Ann Coulter
Rick Santorum
Brittany Spears
Amy Winehouse
Lindsay Lohan

Today I was checking out CNN as I do often during the day. I usually don't check out the videos while I am at work...not because I am at work but because my phone sometimes interferes with the speakers and it annoys me. I usually keep them off. Today, however, I came across this headline, "Soldier Threatened Over Lawn". I was intrigued. I turned on my speakers, sat through a commercial (aren't those annoying?) and watched as the story unfolded. I will embed the video at the end of the post but I know that sometimes, like me, you can't watch a video. Short story, there is a soldier in Kennewick, WA who bought a home in an area that has a homeowners association. When he bought the home he was required to landscape it. Right before he was due to leave for active duty, his landscaper skipped town. The developer of the area, also the president and sole member of the homeowners association, a 'man' named Chick Edwards, said to a local paper " I really don't give a (expletive) who he is or what his problem is." Basically, he wanted to sue the soldier for not landscaping his property. This soldier has a pregnant wife and young son staying back east with family while her husband is on active duty overseas. Some very nice people got together and landscaped his property so that Mr. Edwards would stop harrassing the family. There is more in the video and in the link to the article I provided.

So today, I am adding Mr. Chick Edwards to my island. He is a supercilious 'man' (yeah I am using quotes because I think he is trying to make up for something in that department by being a bully) who obviously cares more about the view than this country. He really serves no purpose for the general population of the world and we would be best served if he joined the people on the island. I am sure that he and Rick would be able to get along. They are just both so into themselves they can't see the light of day. I think the other women would ignore this 'man' becuase well, he's really not a man.

I took out the video b/c it was causing loading problems on the blog. If you'd like to see it, go to CNN and search 'Soldier threatened over lawn'.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure at this point, Chick is probably upset that (a) he acted like such a jerk, and (b) because he has such a "great" first name.

I'm going to be thinking of people who deserve to be banished to your island all day now...

Ya. Chick and his small penis need. to. go.

Live.Love.Eat said...

That's just plain awful. Some people are just soooo cranky and uptight that they misplace there anger. Love the island concept.

Mrs Parks said...

I think Chic and Anne will be greats friends...
I just hope they don't reproduce.

American in Norway said...

Can't watch because i am at work... although I don't blog at work.... *crickets*
Thanks for "getting me" today... I am being a big ol baby... I like the Island idea... think I am going to have to get me one!

Nina said...

First timer at your blog and I am so glad you explained the island thing. That is pretty funny! I hope it is a very yucky island.
That is an awful story. Some people are so self absorbed they don't think about anyone else. I don't like home owners associations. They are for stuck up snooty people just like that who have nothing better to do but nit pick what other people do with their homes. Sad....

Kat said...

HOA are absolutely unreal sometimes. We have a friend whose HOA is now requiring everyone to have tress that are free of ivy and kudzu. I completly understand why. Because ivy and kudzu can kill the trees - and they might fall. BUT...they are not letting people just cut off the vines at the trunk - letting the vines die on the tree. But they require the people to have all the vines completely and totally removed from the trees - in both the front and the backyard.

So...our friends are an elderly couple. On a fixed income. In this economy. What are they supposed to do??

Is there a special place on this island reserved for Chick and his ilk?

sj said...

that is horrid.

seriously. is it possible that chick acts out BECAUSE of his horrible name?

hmm. i wonder.

(that is one baaaaad island.)

Mama Dawg said...

I say we take a road trip to his yard and collectively pee all over it enough so that his grass dies and HE gets his house taken away due to "landscaping" issues.

Anyone? We'll all chip in for gas (thank goodness it's been lower lately).

Alexa said...

Unbelievable... He belongs on your island or in an asylum. :-) Good writing by the way. I enjoy your style.

J'Ollie Primitives said...

Off to the island with Chic! That was a crappy and unneccessary series of remarks on his part.

Bah Humbug, Chic!

kccat said...

Great post. What an ass!! Yea, he definately needs to go to the island.

Can we bump Elizabeth Hasselback to first class when you send her? She is a first class jerk.

Jennifer P. said...

I will totally give you credit for this idea.....when I steal it :)

Sidney (Sixy Mama) said...

Yeah, let's send him to that island, along with a few others that I could think of.

People like him need to get a life.

Kimberly said...

I think would probably send Joe The Plumber to that island.

American in Norway said...

Oooo i finally had a chance to see the video... What a jerk.. You know he has to be feeling a bit like a jerk... at least I hope he does

American in Norway said...

OK I couldn't resist & googled ol'Chick... Chick Edwards at (509) 582-5679 32220 S Oak St, Kennewick, WA 99337 Don't you thinkn his wife is ready to KILL him?

Kelley with Amy's Angels said...

I'll fly that guy first class to the island & have the pilot fly low enough so he can jump out.

What a jerk!

EmBee said...

Oh there you are... Way down here... Tagged ya!
:-)

sheila said...

What a great idea! I'm going to get me an island! I have alot that could go there too! Can I borrow Ann off YOUR island? She may find company on mine with Sarah. LOL.
You're funny, I like your blog!

Sue said...

Yes, Chick should be on the island. He can landscape the crap out of it. I also think Elisabeth Hassleback is getting closer to being on it instead of "on deck".

LuckyMe said...

Rick Santorum?? His last campaign MADE ME NUTS! I love the island idea. Can we send all of Fox News, too?
Fox News is ALWAYS on 2 of the 5 TV's at my gym and I feel like I'm being assaulted, and my intelligence is being insulted. Arrrrrggghhhhh!

Lula! said...

The island is getting full...we may need a bigger one. Do you think Ann and Jesse and Al (the two I sent to the island!) are duking it out over coconuts and bananas right about now?

Dude...Chick is a dick. I said that. Yes I did.

Ashley. Unscripted... said...

I love your island. Well, I don't love the people on your island, but I love the idea of sending these people to the island. If that makes any sense. LOL

And seriously, who calls themself Chick and can look at himself in a mirror? Seriously.

Rhea said...

Oh, yeah, send that jerkwad (asshat) to the island. He sucks.

Home owners association members are uptight, miserable people, I swear to god.

Propecia works by blocking the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. This reduces the level of hormone, DHT, in the scalp and allows hairs to revert to a normal growth cycle. This results in no further hair loss and significantly new hair growth in men with Male Pattern Hair Loss.
