There just might be a bunch of flamingos that show up in your yard overnight

This is pretty cool: a high school senior class is running a fundraiser by means of extortion. For $5, you buy “insurance” against your yard suddenly getting overrun by plastic pink flamingos. For $20 (suggested “donation”) you can make them appear elsewhere.

For example, in morgajel’s yard, if he lived in that county.

Too bad the high school seniors here are more interested in texting and in everything being handed to them on a silver platter. Clever thinking like what the kids are doing in Washougal is the kind of thing that motivates the general public to be generous.
