Dog Barking Causes Child to Emit Lethal Noises

Every now and again, I get disillusioned with the whole legal profession thing, and I get depressed thinking about how completely irrational the U.S. court system is.

Then again, in comparison, I'm pretty sure there's not a U.S. common law tort for "your kid screamed loud enough that all my chickens died". So, hell, its not great, but our system seems to work most of the time.

  • Burn or drown? Either works for me.
    You might be talking about the little screecher that lives a few houses down. His single vocalization is a repeated, ear-piercing scream every time he's put out in the back yard. Last time the screaming happened at 7:30 AM on a Saturdy morning. My wife alarmed and yelled loudly out the window "DOES SOMEBODY NEED AN AMBULANCE!?? ARE YOU HURT!??"
    The parents of Screecher pulled him indoors and the noise ceased. It was way-too damn early on a Saturday that's for sure.

  • could have been worse: you and your terrified wife could have trampled each other to death.

    (always look on the bright side, I say)
