Alex posted something today about pranks. My response became too long, and realized, it was more “post” worthy. So I shortened my comment and here’s my post. She had mentioned, put an Eviction notice on someone’s door. To which, I thought, perfect for those asshole neighbors with the constant barking dogs…
…except then my mind went a little more demented. I saw a variation of this in the 80’s movie Can’t Buy Me Love.
At night: put a steaming pile of dog doo in a brown paper bag (with a doggie skull & crossbones drawn in black marker), place on their front door step, light the bag on fire, and ring their door bell. Jet out of there and hide in nearby bush to watch.
With the hopes, the stupid neighbor (who isn’t home during the day to tend to their fucking dog that won’t shut up … ALL.DAY.LONG.) will open the door to the flames, & stomp it out… around this time, nonchalantly come out of hiding, walk by like you’re on an exercise walk and look at them like “What just happened?”
Would that be taking a prank too far or completely acceptable? I’m thinking unless you live in our neighborhood, or find yourself in a similar predicament, you can’t really make a sound decision. Those of us living it daily, might be able to justify this type of action.
I’m not a prankster. It’s mean. But I fantasize. (sigh)
