You can’t write fiction that funnier or stupider than what happens in real life. Witness the the wacko who complained that the proposed Chicken Plop Bingo event – designed to raise money for the PPS homeless shelter – was harmful to chickens. The event organizers, ever wary of River Town’s lunatic fringe, cancelled the event. The same individual blocked someone from building on her block by claiming that the project would harm┬álocal badgers. Anyone who objected was dubbed a, “Badger Hater.” And, thus, the Great Paula Lane Badger Holocaust was averted. Alert the Nobel Committee.
