I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a public building covered in toilet paper until early Sunday morning after I logged onto Facebook.
The trees on the courthouse lawn were covered in white streamers.
Apparently the “rolling of the courthouse” caused quite a stir among locals.
Folks commenting that they had never seen so much traffic moving around the four corners of the Square for a glance at the white streamers blowing in the wind.
Those who that ventured onto the courthouse lawn to “TP” the trees will become the stuff of Kosciusko legend in time.
And, of course, in their minds, it will grow more and more grandiose with each passing year.
We’ve all pulled a prank or two in our teen years.
We’ve also gotten caught and had to clean up the miss as well.
It is my understanding that the “vandals” admitted to their “crime” and picked up the toilet paper.
Kids will be kids and they will do silly stuff. I’m sure they are mighty proud of the act they accomplished.
So, to those who are outraged at the courthouse lawn being rolled with toilet paper, I say this – Always remember you were a teenager once and you too did stupid stuff.
And , if you could, would you take back all the stupid stuff you did? I think for the most part the answer would be “No!”
Plus nothing was damaged and no one was hurt. It’s just paper.
I’ve only got one real questions to the culprits – Where did you get the money for the 600 rolls of toilet paper? That stuff’s expensive.
