Egging - Not Funny

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Brandt Scanlan, Aug 30, 2005.

  1. Alright, my parents went to Seattle to watch a Mariners game for my mom's 50th birthday. I'm left in charge of the house for a grand total of two days. I'm halfway through, and apparently my house has already been egged.

    OMG ***!!?!?!?!!!11111!!11!one


    None of my neighbors' houses were hit, so I must assume it was some "friends" of mine. The only person that I actually told about my parents leaving is definitely innocent, but I have a few people in mind. I would love to retaliate, but I don't want to be wrong about it. After all, then I would be leaving someone in my exact position. I seriously don't know what I did to deserve this, but I'm pissed off right now.

    Anyway, I need to know how to get dried egg off of my house. If anyone has any advice (not jokes), please let me know.

    That sucks man..sorry to hear it. Some punk kids were egging houses around where my parents live and I think one lady just got it off with a hose. But I don't know how dried it was. A power washer should get it off easily. Other than that, some sort of plastic scraper that would scrape the egg but not paint/vinyl.

    I wouldn't retaliate. Report it to the cops and be the bigger person about it. Retaliation will only get you in deeper egg. I once told off a group of kids who were bugging me and they keyed my car..won't do that again :)

    If you have to retaliate, take them down with a 3 iron and a pile of poo.... :eyebrow:

    I'm a jerk so in typical Ericman197 fashion:

    el oh el that's highlarious tee hee hee ;)

    Personally, I would either camp out in the front yard with an assault rifle or somehow get them back. I wouldn't recommend that course of action though. Well, I would, but I'm not supposed to say that.

    Oh, well. I saw the opportunity and took it. :smug:
  9. Well, the hose wasn't quite enough. I mixed up some LOC and dish soap (two random things I grabbed), and that, along some healthy elbow grease, seemed to take care of it. A friend of mine came down to help me clean. The worst part was definitely climbing the ladder to clean the eaves above the garage door.

    I am significantly calmer now (I walked around and took pictures of my yard at dusk), so I won't be trying to retaliate, even on the off chance that I do figure out who it was. I guess it wasn't that big a deal in the first place, I was just ticked because I don't know why anyone would egg my house specifically.

    Heck yes for LOC. Cleared up the non-malicious egging of my car like a charm.

    My car and house have been egged. A pressure washer usually takes care of it fine with no damage.

    While not in real-life, it's funny in this song.

    I looked out the window and seen his bald head
    I ran to the fridge and pulled out an egg
    Scoped him with my scopes he had no hair
    Launched that shot and he was caught out there
    Saw the convertible driving by
    Loaded up the slingshot and let one fly
    He went for his to find he didn't have one
    Put him in check correct with my egg gun
    The egg a symbol of life
    Go inside your house and bust out your wife
    Pulled out the jammy he thought it was a joke
    The trigger I pulled his face the yoke
    Reached in his pocket took all his cash
    Left my man standing with an egg moustache
    Suckers they come a dime a dozen
    And when I say dozen you know what I'm talking about
    Humpty Dumpty was a big fat egg
    He was playing the wall and then he broke his leg
    Tossed it out the window three minutes hot
    Hit the Rastaman he said *bloodclot*
    Which came first the chicken or the egg
    I egged the chicken then I ate his leg
    Riding the trains in between cars
    When I pull out the station *you're gonna get yours*
    Drive by eggings plaguing L.A.
    *Yo they just got my little cousin ese*
    Sometimes hard boiled sometimes runny
    It comes from a chicken not a bunny dummy
    People laugh it's no joke
    My name's Yauch and I'm throwing the yoke
    *Now they got me in a cell* but I don't care
    It was then that I caught catching people out there
    We all dressed in black we snuck up around the back
    We began to attack the eggs did crack on Haze's back
    Sam I am down with the program
    Green eggs and ham Yosemite Sam
    Come Halloween you know I come strapped
    I throw it at a sucker K-pap
    You made the mistake you judge a man by his race
    You go through life with egg on your face
    You woke up in the morning with a peculiar feeling
    You looked up and saw egg dripping from the ceiling
    Families puck rocks the businessman
    I'll dog anybody with an egg in my hand
    Not like the crack that you put in a pipe
    But crack on your forehead here's a towel now wipe

    Even though I was up working by Husky Stadium the past two days, I swear I did not do it.

    Egging DOES suck...

    Back when the first redesign of the Mustangs came out in 94, I bought one of the first ones in town. Within the first week, I just happen to be cruising thru town, & some punka$$ teenagers hit my car w/ a couple of eggs as I drove by.

    The egg shells literally pitted & stained the paint job of my brand new car.
  19. I would have promptly pitted their paintjobs for that.
  20. If you ever find out who it is, what you do is get a package of bologna and on a nice warm day (the hotter the better) throw some slices onto the hood or anywhere where there is paint. Then when they peel them off they have a lovely new polkadotted car. :D
