Sign 'joking' about domestic violence sparks outrage at Texas bar
http://www.whas11.com ^ | May 29, 2014 | TERESA WOODARD

PLANO — The handwritten sign over the bar at Scruffy Duffies in Plano read: "I like my beer like I like my violence. Domestic."

The words are now gone, but their impact lingers.

"I was like, 'Oh my gosh, do you see this?'" said 24-year-old Courtney Williams. She couldn't believe what she saw on the chalkboard inside Scruffy Duffies Saturday night.

Williams was offended.

"How does someone think it's OK to put something like that up there?" she asked.

Williams asked the female bartender who had written the sign to erase it. Then Williams asked two managers.

They did not take it down.

Williams left the establishment at the Shops at Legacy and posted every detail — along with a photo of the sign — on Facebook.

That post has gone viral.

I believe in free speech but I do find this sign tasteless but not offensive.

I don’t think it’s at all funny, and I wouldn’t patronize that place.

Still not as bad as the idiots in Detroit who got all wound up about the bar with a sign that said “No Colors Allowed”.

It was a biker bar.

I don't think it's funny either, but then you know they never did add that amendment that gives the people the right to not be offended. Your response is the correct one for you, don't patronize that bar! But there just may be enough men and women (domestic violence is a two way street) who are not offended by it to keep the bar profitable. That's the nice thing about AMERICA, at least for a while longer, we get to make our own choices.

The 21st Century version of a letter to the editor; except it reaches thousands of people instantly. People who have been conditioned to be outraged at the slightest offense. People who demand action from the government.

Once heard a guy say that he liked his fish like he liked his women: "beer battered".

Make the judgement yourself.

They like beer from the US. So what’s the problem? Isn’t domestic violence different from foriegn violence?

And this past Tuesday the bar owner fired the general manager.

“On Tuesday, the bar said it had fired its general manager.”

Along with so many other things of my youth, libtards have totally destroyed humor. I have worked in factories and shipyards for over 30 years - when I was young jokes in the shop were anything goes. Ethnicity, sex, race, height, weight, hair or lack of it, looks or lack of it - all fair game. And nobody got mad, sued or went on a shooting spree (though I do remember one guy whose daughter won a contest sponsored by a skin mag for being best at oral sex - he was teased so much about it he had to quit). Nobody dares to talk like that today, and we are all uptight and constantly looking around for the SS to overhear us. We have become a nation of frightened, humorless fags and pussies - and we wonder why people sometimes lose it. God gave us laughter as a stress relieving mechanism and we have carelessly thrown it away as we have so many of His gifts.

I haven’t read the link, but THAT’S overreaction. Just erase it, apologize and don’t do it again and move on. What’s so hard about that?

Its seem to be escaping the notice of all the women getting offended....

That the sign was written by a women bartender on a chalkboard. .

And that women also commit domestic violence, particularly the type of woman that also works as a bartenders in a dive bar.

Bottom line is a lot of female bartenders in local dive bars like the project that tough chick persona....and the guys love it

I remember a saloon I once used to frequent, where usually all of the bartenders were women.

It had a sign behind the bar;

Most of the gals who worked there were little bit tough, no shrinking violets that crew.

Of course there are limits to everything, and it can matter how (and when -- like in relation to something else) one says a thing (and who says it too) as much as what's said itself.

Ethnicity, sex, race, height, weight, hair or lack of it, looks or lack of it - all fair game.

And the best jokes about a group were always told by members of that group. Then the left segregated humanity into oppressors and victims, and THAT'S NOT FUNNY replaced humor.
