Worst Possible New Vandalism Trend: Tipping Smart Cars

Back when I was a kid in Vermont, a rumored but never really proven vandalism past time was supposedly cow tipping. That meant going out into fields and knocking over unsuspecting cows who might or might not have been sleeping.
Possible dumb new trend: Tipping over
these little Smart Cars  

That could be rural legend, but now we have what might be the beginnings of a new "tipping" vandalism trend that is real: Smart Car tipping.

There were four instances of Smart Cars being tipped over in San Francisco recently, according to the Huffington Post.

It's unclear if these were random acts of vandalism or a reaction among locals with modest incomes revolting against all the rich techies moving to town and maybe driving up rents.

But knowing how the Internet and YouTube works, I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of Smart Car tippings. The cars are very fuel efficient, but also tiny and lightweight, and no doubt easy to tip over.

So a few obnoxious, drunk teens will be doing this type of thing until the fad runs its course in a few months.

Hey, how about tipping your waiters and waitresses instead?
