Skunk Surprise

I had to remove a dead skunk from our barn. The skunk was relatively intact, so much so that we weren’t sure it was dead at first.

And that got me to thinking – what could we do with a whole skunk?

Like practical joke-type things.

First thing that came to mind: put it in a friend’s mailbox. Or maybe that would be soon-to-be-former friend’s mailbox. Unless your friend has a very good sense of humor. Put it in the mailbox with the tail on a spring so when he opens the mailbox, the tail sticks out. And of course there would need to be a camera nearby, capturing that moment on video.

Another thing that came to mind: put it in a friend’s car. Similar concept, but this time loosely tie the skunk to the inside of the car door, so that when he opens the door the skunk falls out. I’m picturing it happening like the skunk is walking out of the car, toward the person.

Another car possibility: put it in the back window of the car. The goal here is that the friend does not notice the skunk until he is in the car and glances in the rearview mirror the first time. Hopefully before he has put the car in gear, because I could see something bad happening if the car was already moving at that point.

Any other good places to surprise someone with a skunk?

Note: check local and federal laws before placing anything in a mailbox

Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field are they,
And they cannot speak;
They must be carried,
Because they cannot walk!
Do not fear them,
For they can do no harm,
Nor can they do any good.”

Jeremiah 10:5
