Angry Vegan To Get Her Just Desserts

You have to hand it to the Aussies. Recall yesterday’s post where I reported the strange case of angry vegan Cilla Carden. She sued her neighbors because they dared to barbecue fish in their backyard. Apparently, the odor of cooked fish so thoroughly discombobulated her that she couldn’t eat, sleep or think. The courts have dismissed her complaints, asserting the constitutional right to barbecue in one’s own backyard.

Now, as you might have seen in the comments section of yesterday’s post, right thinking Aussies are going to celebrate the victory by throwing a party. OK, not just a party, but a barbecue in front of Carden’s house. 

Thousands of people are roasting an Australian vegan who took her neighbors to court over the smell of meat and fish from their barbecue — by planning a massive cookout outside her home.

Cilla Carden made headlines this week for her legal beef, in which she claimed the odors from her neighbors’ barbecues had destroyed her quality of life, 9News reported.
Now more than 3,000 people are planning to attend a cookout outside her Perth home, organized on a Facebook page called “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden.”

“Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition, join us for a community BBQ, and help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK,” the event description reads.

The barbecue is scheduled for Oct. 19 — and vegans are not welcome, the page says.

G’day, mate.

[Addendum: As of now the barbecue has been canceled, under threat of lawsuits.]

From a thoughtful op-ed by Martha and the Vandellas:

It's an invitation across the nation, a chance for folks to meet
They'll be laughing and singing, music swinging
Dancing in the street... ♬

BTW, at least for my Chrome browser, FB has memoryholed the page. "Community standards", I presume. :-D

Perhaps the BBQ grills will be on the downwind side, as a friendly gesture? My Magic 8-Ball tells me, "UNLIKELY".
