Beware of argumentative farm animals!

June 19th, 2011 · 63 comments

This indignant note nearly made Mike [sic] with laughter when he saw it posted in the lobby of his apartment building in Surrey, B.C.

(Oh, those Canadians — so hilarious! Even when they’re not trying to be!)

Attention Neighbours!!!!!!! There is a discussing [sic] PIG among us. Someone is leaving bags and bags of garbage in our hallway and stairwell. This has been recurring in the last few weeks and must be stopped! These bags were large garbage bags that were fully, smelly, and already had flies coming from them. Whoever you are, I am watching out for you! And now, so too will your neighbours! You should be ashamed of yourself! If you are this dirty, I am sure your apartment is also a reflection of that. I THINK I SPEAK FOR EVERYONE WHO LIVES IN THIS BUILDING, THAT WE DON'T WANT FLIES, COCROCHES [sic] OR ANY BUGS ASSOCIATED WITH IMPROPER HYGENE [sic]! Or people like you! GROW UP! Signed, A responsible member of society!!!!!!

    I thought everyone liked talking pigs. Babe seemed harmless enough …

      Yeah, everyone thought Babe was a sweet little talking animal.. But that ended when he started leaving bags and bags of garbage around for his neighbors to trip on.

      I’m correct to assume that upon reading this note, everyone else that lives in the apartment building is wishing that the note writer wasn’t speaking on behalf for them.

      I don’t know what cocroches are and what type of hygene is lacking in order to attract them, but I do know for a fact that I want no part of it.

      They are from Surrey, BC. Some of their spelling is different unfortunately.

      The pigs are discussing plans for a riot that involves flinging trash bags all over the city. In Canada, when pigs are insulted through PA notes … Shit gets serious.

    I live about an hour away from surrey. It really is an awful area. Virtually every day “The Province” newspaper is reporting something about someone getting shot there. Oh, and as everyone that lives around here knows, every female in surrey is automatically assumed to have an std.

    Sounds like the writer is starting some sort of neighborhood watch program. It seems awfully nice of the writer to ‘watch out for’ the offending pig. Anyone else might have been ‘on the lookout’ to catch the pig in action.

    This happened where I work once. Someone tried to dump their garbage in the company dumpster. The diligent janitor opened the bags, found their name on a piece of discarded mail and busted their chops. Just saying – maybe the note writer could do this outside in case any cocroches jumped out.

    Could the abandoned trash be an unintended result of running into the discussing pig? Were I innocently taking my trash out and suddenly a pig attempted to strike up a conversation, I might be inclined to drop whatever I was holding and immediately return to my abode {{slam}}

    A responsible member of society would not frivolously waste scarce exclamation points in this manner. I hope this person feels guilty when their grandchildren have to grow up in a world without exclamation points because they were all used up in notes like this one.

    Aside from the spelling, you have no idea how much funnier this is, that the letter is from Surrey BC. It’s our crackville.

    The most undesirable people live there, and yes a large part of that city is very dirty. More drug related crimes and stolen cars per capita happen in Surrey. (Whalley specifically)
