Posted on 07/07/2013 1:50:17 PM PDT by metmom
Police were called to a Hillcrest neighborhood early this morning when neighbors reported that a local mom of twins began throwing flaming dirty diapers at a group of people setting off fireworks.
The woman, Ernie Orsborn, became angry over fireworks going off in her neighborhood while her two young children were trying to sleep. Records show repeated calls to 311 reporting the firework violators between 8:30p.m. and 1 a.m.
Around 9:00 Orsborn posted to her twitter account: I mean, if you like fireworks, go to Pops on the River and let us abstained sip our wine in peace as babies sleep.
Witnesses tell us that sometime around 1:30 a.m. she decided to take measures into her own hands.
I heard her yell, you want to see fireworks, here you go assholes, a neighbor tells us. Suddenly I see her holding a diaper bin and a lighter. She started pulling them out one by one and lobbing them over the fence at a group of drunk men shooting bottle rockets at each other. I sort of wanted to go help her throw them.
None of the individuals shooting the fireworks sustained any injuries, although several did have large amounts of child fecal matter on their faces. Police say that the men promptly put away the fireworks and apologized to the angry mother. None of the men are pressing charges according to police.
As of this morning several bottles of wine, fresh fruit, and pastries have been set outside Orsborns house. Neighbors additionally tell us the men in question have spent much of the morning quietly washing Orsborns car, weeding her flowers beds, and pruning her rose bushes while their wives and girlfriends watch from across the street.
Not a ping.....
Now that’s funny, metmom.
I completely understand her frustrations. We always dreaded 4th of July and New Year’s Eve. Loved it when it rained those days...
Don’t tell me. Local law enforcement officials do not believe terrorism was involved at this time. Ever been hit with a flaming dirty diaper?

Saw this and thought - “must be in the Midwest”.
Arkansas. Love it.
Whoops, looks like it was a satire-type of news...definitely believable for me, however! =)
Damn....I just sent it around, then realized that I’d been “Semmensized”; now I gots to go clean up.
I know where she is coming from. Fireworks were legalized in our city limits recently. The people around here start at 10:30-11 and don’t stop until 4 in the morning. They have been doing these for weeks, including weekdays, when people have to work the next day. My husband wants to know why kids are being expelled or suspended when they draw a picture of a gun or wear the wrong t-shirt.... yet these same kids can buy/and or set off powerful fireworks. They can start fires and hurt others with them. My poor silky Luci Belle, is so scared she won’t come out from under the bed. I hate fireworks and really hate to see people who can’t afford it, spend hundreds on these and have nothing to show for it but sometimes skin burns or worse.
I knew her brother, Ozzrie.
The Flaming Diapers will be performing at the next Emo Fest
I’m on the mom’s side. Here in Illinois and Missouri, the hoosiers have a fireworks fetish. They start drinking and shooting off fireworks not caring on whose property they land. Alcohol/drugs, hoosiers, and fireworks don’t mix..
This kinda sounds like a Sharon stunt.
Kind of a shame it’s satire.
It’s the south, for sure. Our neighbors went crazy with fireworks late last night which terrified babies, sent our indoor pets into a tizzy, and had some area dogs cowering in porch corners. My husband had a talk with the guy and mentioned “consideration” and “respect” and such. The guy said he wanted his kids to be excited about the Fourth of July (which we completely understand), and he finished his fireworks. About 10 minutes after finishing the show, he called and apologized all over the place and the two of them worked out a solution for next year. (Notification ahead of time so kids, pets, etc., would be prepared.)
If this had happened in our neighborhood in So. Cal., mortal lifetime enemies, expletives, and obscene hand gestures would have been the result.
Darn it! I was wanting to move there, wherever it was, flaming diapers and all!
Great balls of ....
