Is egging someone's house for replacing the contents of Ferrero Rocher with brussel sprouts a thing that actually happens?

Asked by ragingloli (52069points) October 30th, 2022

And if the kids did it, could you nail them or their parents with a lawsuit or criminal charge for damaging private property?

Houses get egged for no reason at all, so your hypothetical seems perfectly plausible.

If it doesn’t acually happen it should.

And any charge for damaging private property gets an immediate countersuit from the kids – for inflicting severe emotional trauma & distress.

That is brilliant! A dozen more eggs please.

Oh, for sure. I’ve seen houses be egged just for the residents refusing to open the door.

Last year, as a Halloween prank, I made “cakepops”, a.k.a. Brussels sprouts covered with dark chocolate. My friends were appalled, but my husband happily ate them all.

Sure. My neighbor dared to leave out apples one Halloween and that got him the old, breakfast-for-dinner. I’m sure brussel sprouts would elicit similar donations.

@Smashley What a bummer. My kids love all of the candy. But are always excited when someone has something different to change up the pace.

@raum – it’s true, though I think some element of the indignation was that kids assumed anything not in a store package, especially the highly symbolic apple, was probably poisoned. That there was a bowl of them out, rather than being handed out at the door, only confirmed our suspicions.
