 v.— «“We decided we would ‘flamingo’ people,” she said. By that she meant, for a $15 donation, she and her friend would secretly, at night, place 16 pink plastic flamingos on the lawn of your choice. “Getting pinked,” as it is sometimes called, has been done around the country. A friend sends the birds to your lawn. You have a good laugh, then donate a few bucks to the charity to have the flamingos removed or sent to another lawn.» —“16 pink flamingos bite the dust” by J.D. Mullane Courier Times (Bucks County, Penn.) July 5, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
