Yeah, if given the choice, I'll take the urinating dog, please. The firecrackers were left maliciously. It's a lousy thing to do as a prank. Please, moron responsible - if you read this thread (can you read?), please do something less harmful & more in line w/your maturity level - like play doorbell ditch.
Not to be over alarmist, but if there's mail in the boxes & it gets destroyed, is that a federal offense?

When I grew up in the 80's in Fremont, a few kids in my neighborhood would blow up mailboxes with firecrackers called "M-80s". The word was that each M-80 was equal to a quarter stick of dynamite. Regardless of what firepower they actually had, they were damn powerful and could certainly seriously maim or kill someone if they were close enough.

I don't know about the rest of the over-reactionists here but when I see someone put a firework in a mailbox I generally don't immediately check the mail. Besides obviously if you've left your mail in the box past 9pm, chances are its junk anyways. Dumb prank...dumber reactions.
