An Omaha man, after being warned by the city about “excessive grass and weeds” around his house, decided to mow the lawn. When he was done, the two-word obscenity was writ 30 feet large.
“I saw the neighbor’s yard with some derogatory statements mowed into the yard,” said neighbor Traci Tunzer.
Tunzer said she’s been hoping her neighbor would mow the long grass in his yard, but she’s upset by the way he decided to mow it. Tunzer said there’s a school nearby.
“I have three children, and two of them will definitely know what that says. It worries me,” she said. “We don’t want our children to be around that kind of stuff.”
Down the hill, neighbor Bernie Horstmeyer said he is in disbelief:
“When I first saw it, I saw the big U, and I had to back up just to see if that’s what it really said,” he said.
Horstmeyer and other residents said the homeowner was warned by the city about excessive weeds and tall grass in his yard. They said the expletive could be his response, or just a prank.
“I don’t know if he got turned in (or) why he did it. Or he’s just bored and decided to mow it,” one neighbor said. — The Omaha Channel
News reports state the man’s last name is believed to be Miller and the house is near the intersection of North 68th Street and Park View Lane. I was able to find a telephone listing in the name of Dan Miller within a block of that intersection, but was unable to reach anyone for comment.
Okay, this is funny. It’s also quite protected by the Constitution. I’m still laughing about it, in fact. If one of you is in Omaha, I’d appreciate if you wandered by the address with a digital camera and took a few pictures and sent them in.
