    If u grew up in Iran you would be pissed all the time also. Read Andre Agassi’s book and you’ll hear the same thing about his dad who was from Iran. So far very good book.

    I’d be pissed too if I didn’t have normal ingress and egress to my house because my neighbor had a Holiday display that caused a traffic jam. Why should the whole neighborhood be inconvenienced cause some old dude wants to get his Christmas freak on. The time and money Mr. Babick spends on this display could go a long way toward showing some real Christmas Spirit at City Union Mission.

    What does being from Iran have anything to do with not liking the Clark Griswald wanna-be’s light display? That’s completely inflammatory. I’m from Overland Park, live in PV (a few blocks from the Xmas house) now and celebrate Christmas and I can’t stand it.

    I feel bad for Babick’s neighbors…the lights would be annoying on their own, not to mention people walking through your yard to go see the lights. Oh, and the city makes of the street one way during the holiday season.

    I would be pissed too if my neighbors gaudy Christmas display was causing a traffic jam in front of my house. The fact the neighbor is from Iran is irrelevant.

    Concur the City Union Mission would be a great source to give to. In life you make lemonade out of lemons. If I had zillion cars coming through my neighborhood what could I do-hand out resumes if I was jobless or knew someone that was, sell girl scout cookies, invite people to my church to see the Xmas play, have a garage sale, have a coat drive, sell Amway, sell hot chocolate, try to get my daughter married off, take letters for Santa, shake hands and make business connections, lie to KCTV 5 and say 500,000 people were there, and of course tell people about KCCONFIDENTIAL and then ask Hearne for a cut of all new bloggers. Seriously this is a marketing bonanza for the right person.

    Geez rick : “try to get my daughter married off”
    She must be a keeper…or something. Anyway I can’t wait for some good ol’ missoura vigilante vandal justice. Just give the boys a few days to find out the address of the naysayer and they will properly indoctrinate him into the spirit of the season here in PV. God Bless.

    Hey Axel, why do you pussies in Prairie Village KANSAS need some “good ol’ MISSOURA vigilante vandal justice”? Can’t you gals handle your own business? C’mon it’s not like Wyandotte County is that far away. Surely you can cross the border and find some exiles from La Emme or The Quindaro Kings at the WalMart in Roeland Park to represent…No?

    I’ve never heard about it before. But now I will drive out to see it, and gleefully honk at the ayatollah.

    I LOVE that house and that man. He works all year long to share that display with our city. It’s one of the coolest things in KC at Xmas time. Screw that BAH HUMBUG foreigner. Tell him to go back to his own country. You should not be telling a white guy who has lived here all his life worked hard and payed his dues and taxes what he can and can not do. It just should not happen. Don’t worry he will get the bad karma and more.

    Nothing tackier and more gaudy than Christmas decorations. And there’s always some dick a few blocks away in every neighborhood that makes it his mission every year to be noticed.

    Look at me! Look at me!

    January can’t come fast enough.

    Good article. I was over there last week checking it out last week and just couldn’t stop thinking how happy I was that I am too old for halucinegenics.
    Anyway, There are a ton of these displays in small neighborhoods all over the metro. check out my video blog guide i threw together this wee.

    If some wants to do that to his house, it is his right. HE OWNS THE HOUSE. It is his property. Granted the dude from Iran has a right to be pissed off that people are walking on his property. It is Christmas, a holiday that we celebrate here in the United States of America, which is where freedom lives. I use to live down the street from that house and if people don’t like that he has done that to his house, too damn bad. It’s his house, not yours. People just stay off of the Iranian dude’s property. The signs on the street say “No parking.” So the police should ticket people who park near those signs, which I’m surprised PV cops have not done yet since they will give you a ticket for anything.

    You guys have no idea how annoying this guy is. I live on Falmouth a few houses from this guy and believe me, it is extremely brutal to deal with. It starts a week and a half before Thanksgiving when PV turns the street one-way and puts up no parking signs only in front of the 2 houses to the south of Babick. Then, since everyone in this neighborhood is white trash and doesn’t rake their leaves, all that can be heard everynight of the week until around 11 are kids shuffling through your front yard. Good luck trying to go to sleep before 11 because every F-ing minivan in a 20 mile radius is shutting their doors when they park in front of your house. And let me tell you about the weekend, have fun getting into your driveway when there are 2 school buses and 3 limos Friday and Saturday lines up in the middle of the street for 30 minutes at a time. God forbid you have a beer or glass of wine before you go to dinner because if you back out of YOUR driveway and hit a kid, you’ll be going to jail. Yeah, this guy is a real saint, thank God he’s here to make sure everyone has a merry F-ing Christmas.

    I can see the problem here. Easy solution to that would be to restrict the hrs to 10 and then he would have to turn it off. It is just the coolest house though. Really someone should buy the display from him or help him set it up where it is more accessible and make it even better. Make a whole village display with trains and the works. He would know how to do it right and it would be a KC Xmas tradition forever.

    Maybe Babick can add a few live camels to the display, so his Iranian neighbor will feel more at home, or let him borrow his weedeater so he can trim his wife’s bush. Take him a nice Honey Bake ham and have him over to watch videos of Lou Dobbs.

    A couple of boxes of carpet tacks and several hundred cans of Fix-a-Flat, now there’s a business idea for you, Rick.

    I hear ya Uncle Dick. I used to teach Iranian men to perform cunnilingus. We’d get ’em to suck mayonaise through a brillo pad. I still get thank you letters from Iranian women during the Haaj.

    I bet. Must have killed off most of the camel jockeys that tried. The survivors probably found they could clean shag carpeting with their newly aquired skill. How’d you simulate the smell, take a dump on a dead mackerel and wrap it in a wool bag?

    Wow and Mermaid thinks I’m crude. Speaking of which…Mermaid. HELLO? Anyone home there? It has been a KC tradition forever. At least 30 years.

    From this story I gathered it was just the guy from Iran mad. But if you watched KCTV 5 last night you saw that other neighbors don’t like it. And from the brief interview with the guy i can see he can be a jerk.

    Bottom line is this. The minority should never rule over the majority. If a majority of the neighbors want it gone it should go. Why should this one man rule over his neighbors?

    Also for the record Uncle Dick. I’m a bush supporter. I have no clue as to why this current generation is anti bush. It’s like dating a six year old. So no weed eaters in my neighborhood.

    Holy shit, Roman? A six year old? What, you Italian? I might be a hillbilly, but we wait until they are driving age, so they can go to work if they get knocked up.

    Come on, pubes are like parsley, mostly worthless. Just push it to the side and keep on eatin’.

    Also Mermaid I just read a previous post that said he has been doing this for 44 years. Sounds like a tradition.

    Imagine your neighbor having a party every night with constant car doors slamming, kids screaming, and a racist christmas loon yelling at his neighbors. Imagine trying to pull in your driveway to find it blocked by someone, who say ” we are only going to be parked here for a few minutes” Imagine looking in the christmas garage to see a “tip’ jar.

    I go to this house at least twice a year with my friends. We like to get real drunk and go look at the light and santa robots.
