Trick or treat?
You know your uncle...the one who's always playing tricks on you?  Wouldn't it be fun to see his face when a large flock of pink plastic flamingos migrate to his perfect lawn?  This Area 9 fund-raiser will help you pull off the feat...and will also sell you "insurance" so he can't turn the trick around to your yard!
