DUBUQUE, Iowa - Nothing wrong with a good prank, but Rick and Marilyn Jones’ neighbors seem to have too much time on their hands.
When the Joneses, who are known pranksters, left town for a wedding, Tom and Paula Tschudi went for a little payback.
They planted 3,000 white plastic forks in their neighbors’ yard and dangled more from the roof, fence and garage.
"We just wanted to do something funny to them, because every time we leave, they pull some prank on us," said Paula Tschudi, who promised to help pick up the forks.
Over the years, the Joneses have strung beer cans like holiday lights around the Tschudi home, put a for-sale sign in their yard and strung yellow crime-scene tape around chalk outlines of bodies on the sidewalk.
