Dear Madam, love Quentin

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Fur­ther ev­i­dence reaches us that Quentin Tarantino is ap­proach­ing mid­dle age. It seems the great man has filed a law­suit com­plain­ing about the noise em­a­nat­ing from his neigh­bour’s birds. The of­fend­ing macaws, owned by Alan Ball, Os­car-win­ning writer of Amer­i­can Beauty, are al­leged to emit “ear-split­ting shrieks and screams”.

The suit goes on to ar­gue that “the noise cre­ated con­sti­tutes a nui­sance within the mean­ing of the Cal­i­for­nia civil code sec­tion 3479, in that the ex­otic birds’ squawk­ing, which oc­curs daily and con­tin­ues over a span of seven or eight hours each day, is in­ju­ri­ous to Tarantino’s health and of­fen­sive to his senses such that it ob­structs Tarantino’s free use of his prop­erty and in­ter­feres with his com­fort­able en­joy­ment of life.” How long be­fore he writes to the Ir­ish Times let­ters page com­plain­ing about the amount of lit­ter in our hedgerows?
