Being honked off doesn't give you a right to honk on, a judge told a woman who vented at a neighbor by leaning on her car horn at 6 a.m. Helen Immelt of Monroe, Wash., expressed her anger in 2006 because the neighbor had complained to their homeowners association about her having chickens against the association's rules.

Just because it's a noise doesn't mean it's speech.

She wasn't trying to communicate anything by honking her horn, she was just trying to annoy.
