Puckish pranks

Today's highlights on mention the ancient act of Halloween vandalism called TP'ing, which reminds me: where I grew up, back in Nashville, we referred to this not as TP'ing but rolling. As a lad I first heard the word TP'ing from stepsiblings who grew up in the Chicago suburbs.

It was years before I realized that TP is short for toilet paper. Till then I thought TP'ing referred, for reasons I developed theories about, to Native American housing. I shit you not.
