flocked

noun; zero derivation
term used when one’s yard has been filled with hundreds of plastic pick flamingos I heard about this last year in my senior year of high school when a few girls were talking about a practically joke they played on a good friend a few months earlier. It is used to describe a specific practical joke in which someone puts around a hundred of those decorative garden pink flamingos in another person’s yard and leaves a sign that says, “You’ve been flocked!” This is a relatively new practical joke that has come to replace the old art of toilet papering someone’s house. It derives from the technical term of a group of flamingos. Thus, the meaning of the word flock is being widened in a metaphorical extension to imply hundreds of pink flamingos in one’s yard as a joke.
