Tyrannical Nashville Neighborhood Association Orders Man to Remove Zombie From Yard

Area man/hero Jim Grinstead has had a zombie in the front yard of his home for half a decade*, he says, but only recently received a letter from his homeowners’ association objecting to its presence. From WKRN:

The first sentence of the letter says, “During a recent inspection of the community on April 19, 2016, it was noted that there is a zombie in your yard that needs to be removed.”

Grinstead says he will comply even though his agreement with the association doesn’t appear to mention anything about lawn ornaments or zombie art masterpieces.

It’s odd that the dateline and identifying details in WKRN’s story say it happened in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, because I would have thought for sure such a thing could only take place in COMMUNIST SOVIET RUSSIA AND/OR DEEPEST RED CHINA.

For shame.

*Correction, April 26, 2016: This post originally misstated the amount of time that the zombie has been in Grinstead’s yard. He has lived in his home for a decade and had the zombie in his yard for five years.
