Skip to comments.Sign 'joking' about domestic violence sparks outrage at Texas bar
Posted on 05/29/2014 4:41:41 PM PDT by BBell
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.
The feminazis need to hike up their frilly panties, shut their yaps, and make me a sammich.

I don’t think it’s at all funny, and I wouldn’t patronize that place.
It's Plano, Tx. They have lots of 'em.
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.
Barefoot and pregnant.
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.
Sir! Only if I’m wearing boots.
I hear you.
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.
...and fold my fitted sheets.
This is how questionable weekends start... exchanging toasts in different languages...
LOL! Are you of Russian descent?
Make the judgement yourself.
Then she has to be kind of dumb to be drinking there.(great quote from a Western)
Could've been written by a masochistic male.
TE man that is too funny!
I saw it and was laughing at it and decided to email it to a friend-—only then I noticed the nameof the culprit who had posted it.
Thoughtful, poetic, sensitive, Rocky Mountain John Denver type like thee??
A true feminist!
Only? well okey-doky, wear whatever you like.
...And after schools out...may it be supposed the requirement could be, ah, dropped?
How about I like my women like my golf scores, in the 80s with a slight handicap.
Marinated in white wine then butterflied.
Rest and repeat.
Wow! I am so excited that I could read that!
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 wonder her opinion on abortion. Not a violent act, to her, perhaps.
You and me both.
But I didnt hear her demanding action from the government and I didnt either.
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?
This PC hypersensitivity boggles the mind.
I sure am glad I’m on my way out. Only 3 1/2 more years to go until I hit my three score and ten.
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
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.
my line to a buxom female friend
Me: I like my women like i like my coffee
Her: Hot and Black????
Me: No, In jumbo cups
It gets a laugh
I’m as nauseated by the “all men are batterers” crowd as they come...but that sign’s a bit over the top.
It didnt escape my notice.
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.
That’s an oldie.
