As a teenager, the coolest thing to do in rural suburbia included cow tipping. Now, I never took part in the activity but it looks like cow tipping has been modernized and transformed somewhat to become Smart car tipping.
Instead of tipping over a sleepy, relaxing cow in a pasture, pranksters are scoping out Smart cars to knock over park on the street.
In fact, this has become the latest crazy across the world and in our very own Edmonton, Alberta.
And now a man in his 40s is charged with mischief for allegedly tipping a Smart car onto its side along Edmonton's Whyte Avenue, a trendy bar-and-boutique strip that sometimes attracts rowdy drinkers.
Windows, exterior mirrors and panelling on the car were damaged, and despite the outrage of owner Kevin Spaans, amused bystanders posed with the flipped car and snapped photos with their cellphone cameras.
So for now, all of you Smart car owners beware and wary of any pedestrians with giddy looks on their faces as they eye your car.
