What happens if you don't want to pay? What adult is in charge of this? Maybe it's just me, but it seems a little aggressive.

It's new to NY state but all over other states. In Florida and other states it has been a Big hit. You can "Flock" people for birthdays,anniversaries, new babies, etc. A friend of mine woke up on her 50th birthday with 50 Pink Flamingos on her front lawn. I think it's cool!

They are also sometimes used for charity. A person puts them on someone's lawn with a note attached to one stating they have to pay certain amount for each flamingo (usually $1.00 - $5.00) to a specified charity then they in turn put them on somebody else's lawn with a note attached. Nice and fun way for people to raise money for charity.

I dont agree with placing them unknowingly on someones lawn expecting them to pay.
Paying for having them placed is fine, but not the other way around.

Totally stupid. I give enough to charity. If I ended up finding 10 flamingos on my yard and had to pay 100 dollars to get rid of them and send them to someone else I'd be pissed.
So can we assume that when there are tons of flamingos on someone's yard they are leaving them on their lawn and not paying anything? I don't blame them. Especially for something so stupid as boy's varsity basketball. Let them wash cars or sell baked good. DUMB IDEA!

I woke up one morning and there were forty pink flaming gays on my front yard. I guess I must have been really out of it the night before. I talked to the "head-gay" and he said that for a certain favor I could get them all to leave. I showed him my "Helmeted-buddy" and they all laughed and left. I really have to watch the stuff I toke.

Yesterday I saw the devilish things all over the front lawn of the Annunciation Church rectory. This is so wrong. Somebody will pay.

Listen dumbasses!, the person who has them at their residence doesn't pay for them, r u all that retarded? You have to pay upfront ahead of time, why would someone agree to place these on a lawn of someone who might not pay, let alone expect them to pay. If you want them, you pay prior to there arrivals.

I never paid for them dang gays but they were there. It sucks to think that people could just send them flaming gays to my yard and I don't have any say in it. Must be them dang union stewards at the Arms. they're all gay and probably got connections.

your a dumbass and a retard. Why else would you be the expert on something you know nothing about. you are basing your OPINIONS on common sense, which isnt how people work. this is a stupid fundraising idea that places these ugly flamingos on someones front lawn, essetially "forcing" people to pay to get rid of the flock. its stupid and pushy. and no one wants them in their yard or a neighbors yard
you jest

I think we should put large ape men on the front yards and let them serve porn and alcohol to kids, sell sex for $, be the hottest milf and maybe even ask Roger Salvagni to stop by. get a life and a job!

no its typical Ilion Team Moms thinking with their collective heads up their backsides again. "oh let's do something presumptuous and trendy like they do somewhere else so we look classy"

While I dont mind the look of the Flamingos, I think it stinks to essentially try and extort money from unsuspecting residents. If they wanted to support the teams they would do it on their own! How about a bottle dirve? That AWAYS pulled in great revenue from "willing residents".
