They say what's old is new again, but -- in this case -- you're not likely to find much nostalgia.
Two recent occurrences may not make for a trend, but an incident in Lower Macungie Township was the second in recent times involving feces being used as the weapon of choice.
Harkening back a bit, the referenced old gag was to place feces in a bag, light the bag on fire and ring a doorbell. The startled owner, seeing the flame, would stomp on the bag and . . . well, you can figure out the rest if, in fact, you weren't already familiar with the gag.
Skipping ahead, and regardless of the motivation, Susan Harvey of 1453 Walnut Lane reported June 28 to that someone had put feces in a plastic bag in her mailbox. She said the material was left between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. She also reported that a derogatory message was written in chalk on her driveway. The incident was classified as disorderly conduct.
The other recent incident in the township involving feces occurred June 6 along Village Round E. A bag of dog feces was placed on a vehicle.
