The practical jokes came to a halt when bodily injury was threatened after the last practical joke went a tad too far. Having used a pitch fork to retrieve a dead skunk along the side of the road, said skunk was then buried in a shallow grave of sorts in the dirt of the unfinished living room of the rival crew's structure. Evidently it took that crew more than half the day to locate the offending smell. The same crew was particularly unimpressed with this latest joke so having opted to re-gift the skunk, they performed the increasingly popular drive-by skunking. This was accomplished by gathering the skunk in plastic and while sitting in the bed of a speeding pickup, swinging the skunk around and around much like a cowboy prepares to lasso a calf, then attempting to fling it through the open trailer door of their rivals' living quarters. They missed. Decomposing skunk remains relatively exploded along the siding of the trailer. Mayhem definitely ensued. There may have been a high speed chase involved although no one will directly admit to it.
Witty quip of the day: Boys will be boys. However, they really ought not be allowed to play with power tools and skunks.
