Speaking of holiday cheer...

The neighbor kitty-corner to the Wilhelm (my un-humble abode) have a pair of those decorative lit-up deer. You know the sort: stick frames formed into the shape of deer and bestrewn with Christmas lights. Well these deer are apparently the object of holiday culture jamming on the part of the neighborhood teens. Twice now in so many days I've witnessed groups of teens--two to rearrange the unsuspecting festive decorations and one to man the getaway car--attempting to rearrange the would-be deer into compromising sexual positions. Each time they have failed, however, due to the vigilance of my geriatric neighbor. I would take a picture of the kids' failure, but I fear my cantankerous neighbor would think I was in on the gag. I also don't really want him shouting at me to stay off his lawn.


  1. I think it would be hilarious if you'd stake out the yard with a camera. Too funny. If the old person who keeps catching them catches you, just say you are undercover and trying to catch them all on camera.

  2. That's got to be depressing for the kids trying to run the prank. You know that things aren't looking good for you in high school when you can't even get your neighbor's cheesey, plastic reindeer in compromising sexual positions.
