Your Garden Gnome Sucks -- The Yard Art of Little Forest Hills
"Keep Little Forest Hills Funky" is more than just a stoner's chant. It's actually an underground battlecry. It's the Little Forest Hills residents way of saying, "Keep your barfbag McMasions off our property." They mean it too. The neighborhood east of White Rock Lake is a quirky hodgepodge. Some streets have curbs, some don't. Some have active alleys. Other alleys are overgrown with weeds and a lone plastic chairs. Every house is different ... an expression of the artist, hippie or free spirit living inside. And the lawns? Well, the expression spills over there, too.

I don't know why Jesus didn't save that flamingo, but he didn't. Probably because he hates Florida like the rest of us.
