At least they haven't soiled the deck...

Re: Climate Change Blamed for Flamingo Attack in Connecticut

So far this year my boat has been "tinseled" and covered in stuffed monkeys, about two dozen stuffed monkeys. I did "borrow" a plastic owl but this means war. I just have to think up something really good...

Two approaches occur to me. long fuzzy spider brown pipe cleaners and a cream
collored center.
Alternantly nanu, nanu, clean and polish the offenders boat. In secret of course.

There must be a WallMart near the marina, I believe that is the only known natural habitat for those things, unless Divine is a neighbor! Though looking them up on the web shows that Rhode Island Novelties appears to be one of the biggest suppliers so perhaps they were just migrating?

Just remember it is all just fun and games, till someone gets hurt! Very creative I must say.

I am willing to bet that there is a number of members here who will agree with climate change being the problem without ever looking at the video..... Sounds like you have friends that are similar to mine....

I'm just glad to know that I'm not the only one with friends who travel with 50 - 100 pink flamingos...just in case...

It might take a few months but I'll post my revenge video!

Points for creativity.

A better video might have been the look on your face as you dinghy'd out to the boat :-)
