PRANK DONE IN THE COUNTRY (RICHMOND, MICHIGAN)

"MY FATHER ONCE TOLD US ABOUT HOW WHEN HE AND HIS BROTHERS ONCE
TOOK A PAPER SACK AND FILLED IT WITH COW MANURE. THEY TOOK THE
SACK FILLED WITH MANURE AND PLACED IT ON A PERSON'S FRONT PORCH.
THEN THEY LIT THE BAG WITH A MATCH AND RANG THE DOORBELL BEFORE
RUNNING AWAY. WHEN THE GUY CAME TO THE DOOR HE SAW THE SMALL
FIRE AND TRIED TO STAMP IT OUT, THUS GETTING MANURE ALL OVER
HIS SHOES."

Submitter comment: WE WERE WARNED THAT IF WE TRIED SOMETHING LIKE THIS WE'D
REGRET IT.
