Damn Kids! Get Off My Lawn!

Saturday, December 19, 2009
This was the scene in front of the Big Yellow House this morning when the Smart Man and I awoke to begin our daily activities. Our tree was the only one so decorated in the neighborhood, so we suspect our selection was personal, although we have no evidence. And since it seems most unlikely that the Smart Man and my friends could stay up long enough to accomplish the deed without waking Boogie the Giant Schnauzer, we have also concluded that this was probably the work of some young group of folks out looking to foment some harmless trouble. The Smart Boy has indicated he doesn't think it was his friends, and I have to admit it seems a bit juvenile for college students, so it might have been a random event.

In any case, the Smart Boy had a chore waiting for him when he got up this morning, and the Smart Man and I have even more reason to tell those damn kids to get off our lawn.

College students just do it with better tech, like toiletpaper compressed air cannons.

And this is what the automated machinegun nests are good for. Just saying.

Okay, now I want a toilet paper compressed air cannon of my OWN.

Be sure and mount it on something mobile so you can chase them, if you need to. Ho, ho, ho!!!
