Ordering the house beer at an Earls restaurant just became a human rights issue.
The popular restaurant chain, with outlets across Western Canada and Ontario, is the target of a complaint over the name of its brew: Albino Rhino.

Wow... a brave new world indeed.

And the silly get sillier.......

I don't see this complainant's name attached to the name of the brew in any way, shape or form so how does it possibly have anything to do with her. Now if an albino rhino suddenly popped up with a lawyer and filed a complaint with the Human Rights people.......oh wait.......it would have to be the Animal Rights folks.....

Some people have too much time on their hands if they're wasting their time on something so bloody frivolous. Perhaps their time would be better served complaining about something that actually IS worthy of a human rights complaint.

It really isn't about the beer, its about the fact they now have albino chicken wings:

Both suffered in silence through albino rhino beer, but it was "the last straw" when albino chicken wings came to be advertised.
"What's next, albino burgers?" Ero asked.

But I agree this claim is just plain stupid.

The Complainant has a good chance of winning given the track record of the Human Rights Tribunal. I remember the guy who complained of having to put up Christmas decorations, even though it conflicted with his Jewish religion. He won.

I thought Canadians hold albinism in high regard? Albino animals anyway. I saw an albino buck when I was hunting in Manitoba. I never took the shot. I figured this guy was born with enough problems without me adding to them. Anyway, she's being a little to sensitive.

You should complain to A&W for not having an our 'special' kid burger since you don't feel part of the burger family.

That reminds me of that spoof commercial off Rick Mercer years ago where the guy bought his dad a Grandpa burger to kinda surprise his dad that he and his wife were having a child making him a Grandfather. When he found his burger he instead flipped out thinking his son was saying he was old. :lol:

Wish I could find the video again, it was hilarious!

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

In other news...a dirty old man was arrested and taken away in handcuffs at a local A&W restaurant. Witnesses say the dirty old man walked up to the counter and demanded a Teen with no dressing.

How is that in any way related?

Some dude who finds Christmas offensive shouldn't be forced to put up decorations for it, and have his job threatened if he doesn't. That's a perfectly reasonable ruling.

Whereas choosing to go eat in a restaurant, and taking offense to an optional item on the menu, is easily fixed. Eat somewhere else, or stop being so sensitive. This is OBVIOUSLY just a money grab.
