She loves her peeps. Carol Burdick of Colorado is going to court to battle her eviction from her apartment after her landlord kicked her out for leaving up her Easter decorations too long.

Enough is enough with lazy assholes who leave up decorations too long. I’m not kidding – there is one house in my neighborhood with Christmas lights still up – their wreath would probably still be hanging above their garage door if it had not spontaneously combusted a few weeks ago.
