Jerk House

Our neighborhood has its very own Monster House. Let me tell you about it.

It's this white house with a nice white picket fence, and it's always had a "No Tresspassing" sign and a slightly foreboding nature. But last week on garbage day, due to circumstances I can't imagine, there was just a HUGE MOUNTAIN OF GARBAGE on the sidewalk and patch of lawn in front of the house's picket fence. As soon as you got near it, birds, squirrels, and insects would scatter. It smelled terrible and was totally heinous.

After trash day, the mountain still remained. Unsurprisingly, the garbage guys seemed unwilling to tackle a mound of loose garbage. The next day, there were little orange and white warning dividers around the mound, and the single "No Trespassing" sign on the house had become a DOZEN "No Tresspassing" signs, each one bearing its own, personal message, such as "You WILL be arrested by the owner of this house!" or "You will be persecuted to the fullest extent of the law!" and finally, and strangely, "Anthony does NOT live here!"

So, a mystery. Perhaps Anthony had something to do with the garbage mound, and the owner of the house resented being harassed about it? Anyway, the garbage has been removed now, but the many signs remain. It's kind of overkill, and really has the oppposite effect on me. Seeing that little house plastered in signs just make me want to tresspass all over it.

You should TP them. But from the sidewalk so they can't shoot you if you get caught. I mean, they can, just not legally.

I am worried that they would, be it legal or not.
