In Olympia, WA a man came home to find almost everything in his apartment covered in aluminum foil.

Excerpt:

No detail was too small or too time-consuming.

Trerice and his friends unrolled the toilet paper in the bathroom, enveloped the bath tissue in aluminum foil and rolled it back up again. They covered Kirk's book and compact disc collections but made sure each CD case could open and shut normally.

They even used foil to encircle Kirk's spare change -- each individual quarter he had left atop a living room bookshelf.

"It went surprisingly fast," Trerice said. "The toilet was hard. The molding around the doorways took a very long time."

Just think of what urban planners can do with tin foil to revitalize the world's worst slums.

My wife actually knows these people! From stories she's told of them, this is an easy prank to imagine them doing. This is too funny. I'll have to let her know about this.

If he wanted to clean it up quickly, all he has to do is throw a big baked potato party.
