Whatever happened to loving thy neighbor?
An unidentified Iowan woman — “Crazy rhubarb lady,” as the Internet hath dubbed her — has rocketed to online infamy this week when video appeared online of her shouting a long string of profanities at a homeowner who caught her removing rhubarbs from a patch that had found its way outside the limits of a fence.
Apparently “Crazy Rhubarb Lady” has made a habit of plucking rhubarb from a neighbor’s patch, and has been confronted multiple times, but only when the cameras are rolling does the public get a glimpse into the hilarity of a woman cursing out two other adults over a leafy plant.
“This is goddamn alley property, bitch!” the woman yells at a woman off-camera. “This don’t have your name on it. Where’s your name, bitch? Where’s your name?”
She continued to lash out at the other woman: “You’re a fuckin’ whore, you stick your nose in everyone’s business.”
“If it’s anybody’s property, why don’t you come up and mow it?” the off-camera woman asks. The answer: Because of the “Iranian pigs” who live in the area and stole her lawnmower.
The verbal battle continued for at least five minutes, with Rhubarb Lady calling her accuser a “fuckin’ lezzie” for addressing her as “sweetheart.”
We hope the rhubarb was really worth it. « less
