She sounds like the crazy bus driver from South Park.
It's like watching a John Waters film.
Funny at first then sort of sad...makes me want to know her backstory!
"It's alley property, Bitch!" is my new catchphrase.
Well, if it truly is the rhubarb belonging to the woman's mother why is out outside their fence?
They appear to know that this rhubarb woman is nuts and seem to enjoy goading her. They should keep their pinocchio fucking noses out of her business!
A Datalounge poster, obvs.
And yeah, this poor woman is clearly unwell. Dementia?
Schizophrenia, most likely.
Funny at first, but it quickly becomes very sad.
She's obviously mentally ill, and the so-called good samaritans were wrong in egging her on like that. They should have walked away because there's no telling what someone that violent could do. Very VERY stupid of the neighbours. This video is meant to single out the crazy lady and poke at her with proverbial sticks. Very nice, folks.
It's fucking rhubarb. That stuff grows like a virus. Plenty for everyone.
Maybe this is just stealth marketing for the Into the Woods film?
She could be mentally ill or she could just be a foul-mouthed, belligerent hag who gets defensive when caught stealing rhubarb.
I don't think "good samaritans" means what you think it means, R9.
-The rhubarb is clearly not hers to take. A fence is not always a clear indicator of property lines, and a reasonable person wouldn't assume a garden or planting immediately outside of someone's fence is just up for grabs. "Alley property" has no legal meaning; just because something grows on public land doesn't give anyone the right to take it. You can't go to a park, for instance, and clip a few tulips to take home for a nice flower arrangement.
-She's clearly mentally Ill.
-The people who recorded themselves egging her on and arguing with her come off much worse when you watch the whole video. They are goading and riling up a mentally ill person for the purpose of humiliating her on the Internet. The more humane and reasonable approach would have been to call the police as soon as rhubarb lady became belligerent. She's mentally ill and needs help, indicating problems far worse than stolen rhubarb.
r10 wins. Hands down.
Yeah, she's mentally ill, but come on. Her banter is fucking hilarious!
"Don't call me sweetheart, honeybun. What are you, a fucking lezzie?"
Could you imagine living with her? or any of them for that matter. The woman hanging over the fence sounds like Jerry Seinfeld's mother.
On her watch list:
Five Easy Pieces
She sounds like the woman from "Throw Momma From the Train."
Aspies behave like this when they get older.
Yes, she one of ours.
Did she says that Iranians stole her lawnmower?
[quote]Yes, she one of ours.
So this is going to happen to you, R19?
Well, I'm letting you know now that you may have all of the rhubarb you like from the alley property, bitch.
Why can't I have fun neighbours like this?
"crazy rhubarb lady" now comes up in google autofill
a star is born!
God, you're right, R24. All I had to type was "crazy r" and it came up.
comment from above link:
"How will humanity top this? This was the top. Humanity did what it came here to do and this was it. It's time to shut it all down. It's over. The Universe has culminated, produced 4 minutes of transcendent, pure beauty that will never be surpassed. There is nothing more to do. I expect the sea of fire tomorrow. I realize to late I'm just an observer and not a character on the grand stage. The grand stage is now is now in flames. It is over."
I think this poor woman is mentally ill. She may be foul-mouthed and abrasive, but I think the people harassing and videotaping her should be ashamed of themselves for tormenting her. Rhubarb grows like weeds once it's established, they can spare a bunch.
She's obviously a menace to the neighborhood, she should be put down immediately.
"Don't call me sweetheart, honeybun. What are you, a fucking lezzie?" LMAO
Give this bitch her own reality show.
this reminds me of a funny rhubarb joke
a rhubarb, a pickle and a penis were talking about their awful lives.
the rhubarb said my life's a mess, when i get big and fat they cut me up and cook me.
the pickle said when i get big and fat they cover me in vinegar and throw me in a jar.
the penis said, when i get big and fat they pull a plastic bag over my head, stick me in a dark, damp room and bang my head against the wall till i throw up and pass out!
Never rub another man's rhubarb!
GO BACK INSIDE, WHORE!
So I am ignorant about rhubarb: does it grow wild in some parts of the United States?
I have never seen rhubarb growing in my life here in Louisiana.
Mentally ill but her dialogue is hilarious. Yes, the women recording her come off as bitches.
In my neighborhood if something is growing outside your fence it's not yours anymore. My neighbors are allowed to trim anything of mine that is encroaching on their property. This is usually tree branches. The city can do anything if it's encroaching on city easement.
I thought it was Rosie O'Donnell's new film, "Making a Fuss With My Sister."
She's one of the trees from the Wizard of Oz come to life.
But yeah, she's mentally ill. The one who is filming it is also a foul mouthed loon.
The ones filming were just feed up with her antics and her stealing their rhubarb. Stop criticizing them. They are the victims.
Tired of people excusing this kind of behavior by calling it "mental illness." She's a mean old bitch who seemed to have a quick response for everything they were saying.
R46, do you understand the meaning of "illness"?
The people filming her are assholes. They provoke and goad her for over 3 minutes, camera rolling the entire time, and posted it online for the express purpose of humiliating her. If they weren't such sociopaths they would have done the right thing: called the cops. The rhubarb stealer needs medical attention and her family (if she has any) needs a wake-up call. Intentionally provoking her while filming her for the purpose of humiliating her online is just cruel and serves no purpose. If they really cared about their precious rhubarb they would call the cops.
R47, we live in an age when people's instincts are to pull their phones out to record human suffering rather than aid.
"THEY DON'T ANSWER THEIR FUCKING DOORS!"
Gee, I wonder why?
Has she got a twitter account yet? I guess she wouldn't have much to tweet except "fuck you, you whore. This is an alleyway."
Finally, the role of a lifetime for Patti LuPone.
The Huff Post has removed the video from their site stating:
EDITOR'S NOTE: A video previously ran here showing a verbal dispute which was unusually intense given what appeared to be a trivial subject matter. It later came to our attention one of the parties involved may have been affected by circumstances beyond their control. Out of respect for this individual, we have removed it.
R55 What do you think happened?
imagine her getting fucked.
R56, "affected by circumstances beyond their control" seems to imply mental illness.
Why am I the only one on Rhubarb lady's side? She has every right to pick at the rhubarb, it was outside the fence. Those busy body neighbors should leave her be, it's the equivalent of alley picking. I don't think she is mentally ill, she's just pissed off.
I wonder if she knows how to take a cock like a champ
I want to fuck Rhubarb Lady doggie style, don't you? You can watch, I've been watched.
[quote] Tired of people excusing this kind of behavior by calling it "mental illness." She's a mean old bitch who seemed to have a quick response for everything they were saying.
I'm with you R46. I really don't think this is mental illness. She's just super-negative.
I agree. You'll get the same spiel from any of the boys at CAA if you take their parking spot.
I'm not super negative, bitch. I could care less what you think, whore.
Why don't you go back in the house and lose some weight fat ass!
Is rhubarb like a weed?
If there's one thing I can't stand, it's snobbery and one-upmanship. People who try to pretend they're superior. Makes it so much harder for those of us who really are.
I saw that on Huffington Post. Wonder what they found out that made them pull the video?
The lady should sue all these talk show hosts!
She's insane. It's scary to think that she could be someone's mother.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
