A fight over a fence in a Santa Rosa neighborhood has given new meaning to the phrase “naked aggression.”
After a neighbor complained that Jason Windus’ fence was too high and cutting visibility at a busy street corner, the city got involved. And after the city issued Windus a notice that he had violated a local ordinance, Windus cut down his fence a legally acceptable 36 inches, according to ABC-7’s Wayne Freedman. Windus also asserted that he was just trying to keep his dogs in the yard.
“I’m just making a point,” the dog-loving fence owner told the reporter.
Next came the nudes.
Windus dug some old male and female mannequins he’d been planning to use for target practice and erected what the neighborhood has come to know as “Jason’s Garden Party.”
“I couldn’t bring myself to throw them away,” he told ABC-7.
Now the disgruntled neighbor can look at Windus’ yard see a whole more than just Mother Nature. “Makes the place more interesting,” another neighbor told the station.
“The main parts are covered,” added Valerie Palmer from a passing pickup.
“It is very serious. They made me freak out,” Windus told Freeman as he showed him the violation notice. “They were going to fine me every day it wasn’t taken down.”
Windus said that while the average guy who was forced to cut down his fence might get angry, he decided on a more creative option:
And what does he do? Says Windus: “I throw a naked party in my yard. … I’m waiting. If they didn’t like the fence, how do they like this? They wanted me to tear down my fence to see inside my yard, and now they get to.”
From there, the story jumped onto Twitter, where it has taken on a life of its own:
