    We woke up to toilet paper in the trees and on my son's car this morning! My younget son got home about 12:30 last night and the middle one came about 2 AM. During that time period was when the toilet paper bandits hit our yard. They left my DH's truck alone but covered my son's car parked next to it. They didn't miss a tree in the back yard! We all had a good chuckle from it. The neighbor called to tell us their grandkids were on their way to help pick it up about 8 this morning. They send over several grandkids, each one with a bag. The kids who had the fullest bag got the biggest cinimon roll for breakfast! Kids will be kids...and toilet paper is a harmless prank.

    I've always wondered how you get it out of your trees? I honestly don't know how I would react to that......... Sorry.

    I wish my neighbor years ago had the same opinion as you lovely people! She was absolutely horrified and called me at work to demand that I get all that unsightly stuff taken care of immediately as it was a disgrace to the neighborhood.
    Never mind that it happened on Sunday night and we all had either work or school on Monday! We took care of it Monday evening, but she was a real grump about it and seemed to think it was somehow our fault for 'allowing' it to happen at all.

    I checked to make sure you weren't our neighbor. They had so much tp yesterday that you couldn't see their house. I am glad to hear you all have a sense of humor.

    When my kids were in Jr High and Sr High, we got hit all the time. But we didn't have any trees in the front yard, mostly rose bushes. DH worked with the Jr. Highers for years and so we were "well loved" we would get TP'd, Chalked (you know sidewalk chalk outlining kids, scripture verses written and messages (no bad words)), Tortillaed and forked. It was kids from church and all in fun. A couple times we caught them. The time we were tortillaed we were letting the dogs out front to do their thing and the kids ran off and the dogs started eating the tortilla's!! We had to make sure that they weren't moldy ones, we did not want sick dogs! With forking, they stuck a couple hundred plastic forks all over the lawn and planters. It was pretty funny!!!

    One of the most fun times I ever had was driving my 2 sons and a few of their friends around to TP houses. I was forever after known as the "cool mom". It was harmless fun, not done to be malicious.

    such fun memories... my AP Bio students placed a gigantic banner across the front of our home proclaiming "Quarantined" the day after their AP test... along with lots of tp and shaving cream... They "forked" the AP Chem teacher the same night...

    fun memories...

    I guess some people have no sense of fun. It is such a harmless prank. My DGS goes to a small private school, K - 12 and on game days after the pep rally during football season all the trees in the front of the school are TP'ed. It's there the next morning and is gone and cleaned up by the end of the day. The kids have a great time doing it, it's a tradition now.

    I don't think there was any meaning behind them. The kids were just being goofy. The forks stick nicely in the lawn and ground. I don't have a clue why they used tortillas!!! That was strange. I was concerned when the dogs ran out the door and started eating them. We had no idea anyone was out there "decorating" our front yard!!!

    This brought back memories if when our 4 were young and we got TP'd quite often. One year, I did drive my nieces and my DD's over to my youngest brothers home and they TP'd the heck out of his house and lawn. He has pulled enough tricks on me over the years, I thought it was time to pay it back. He was not upset at all and agreed that he deserved it. LOL We never did it again though. Ahhhh such memories of getting up and having to go out & clean things up. I rather it be TP than paint that so many use now. *shudder*

    I agree TP it harmless, alot of kids today use things that are not so harmless. I will take TP anyday. This does bring back memories for me as well. Fun times with our kids as they grow up : )

    There's a "prank" they do now that's actually a fundraiser. You pay $10 or $15 to the football team (or whatever the group is) and they go to an address you specify and stick 50 or 60 pink flamingos in the yard. They come back 2 or 3 days later, retrieve the flamingos, and ask THAT homeowner if there's someone they want to prank for a fee, and on it goes. It's pretty funny!

    Well, if you put the forks out the racoons won't eat the tortillas cause they won't step on the forks.

    LOL..Here in podunk theres a little town called Nineveh, Every Halloween the entire town gets together and toilet papers the whole town. Its the biggest mess you've ever seen. And they dont clean it up, it stays till mother nature takes care of it.

    Your story reminds me of a time when my oldest son was still in high school. He came home early one weekend because he had to work on sunday morning, so the buddies that he was hanging with saturday night wrapped his entire car in saran wrap!

    Water hose works wonders at dissolving the paper in the trees. Ask me how I know this?
