    It's homecoming week and I need some ideas. My buddies and I have already done the usual teepeeing, chalking, etc. and we're looking for something big and creative. Any ideas are welcome.

    Forking.

    As many plastic forks as you can get. Stuck into the lawn.

    another vote for forking.

    Also shave their cat if they have not already done so.

    1. Chalk outline of a body on the driveway, surrounded by police tape.
    2. Use tile epoxy to attach a toilet to the driveway, then place a "No Dumping" street sign next to it. Dumping in the toilet is optional.

    Yes, I know "people" who have done both of these. No, I can't be held responsible for any damage or legal issues that arise.

    I've used the "invisible door" one at the bottom of the list, except I use a single piece of fishing line taped at about neck level (but not taped too securely, of course). It works especially well when they've just woken up and can't see straight to begin with.

    Dress up as a UPS man, deliver a package to their door and then pee on their lawn.

    Forget the salt/roundup unless you want to go to FPMITTAP.

    Aw brings back memories of the lawnjobs we used to do.

    Manual transmission + lawn = good times.

    just don't be a dick and do permanent damage - we homeowners have enough to do without repairing/replacing things dumbasses intentionally do to our property.

    I was going to say a flaming cross, but .... I don't know - for some reason my gut is saying it's been done before, somewhere, sometime.....

    and may be in bad taste.

    You paint/spray your message with roundup. It shows up in a week.

    Set 200+ garden gnomes on their lawn while they are sleeping and find a way to have them get out of bed and go outside in the middle of the night.;)

    Some few random thought ideas:

    Change every single light bulb in the house to pink ones. It's breast cancer awareness month so it should be fairly easy to find those. :D Try to get the 100watt ones.

    Decorate the whole house for Christmas, go totally overboard. You need at least 100 plastic candy canes, santa sled, TONS of lights, trees etc...

    use tons of these on the windows: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/i...VNAL._SL500_AA280_.gif

    Clear tape every single phone/ethernet cord

    Put broken eggs in the mailbox

    Cover the entire roof with styrofoam plates (preferably in some really ugly color, or mix of colors)

    Get some empty cleaned paint cans and scatter them near/on the driveway. Find some easy to clean substance to look like paint just got thrown all over, make sure to get the house too. Not sure what you could use though... something that sticks to some degree but can be hosed down.
