I like the gay-pride flag idea.  Make sure to state it in several languages.  I have a small yappy dog--she works wonders!  Also, the concept of glue-ing (sp.?) the neighbors refuse to their porch has a certain appeal.  I applaud your positive use of passive-aggressive behavior.

I'm a very private person which has many downfalls living in an apartment community but if I had people crashing on my territory, no matter what the language the fire extinguisher would be making an appearance.  That would teach them!  Muhaha.  I love your vindictive chair - wonderful idea...and slightly less messy then mine LOL

I'm poor and I'm weird, baby, you've got no time for me!

Spray a cloud of girly perfume to have wafting around your patio-or burn a very floral inscense. Something cheap and obnoxious,but definitely girly! And spreading some irridescent glitter where they sit-they'll look so cute covered in glitter later. I like something motion activated that triggers lights or noise. I just bought a personal alarm from the lock store.They said a lot of people rig them to windows and doors as a cheap burglar alarm.Mine costs ten dollars,and it's ear piercing! My aunt had a plastic bullfrog that croaked loudly every time you walked in front of it.
Seriously, I'd be tempted to just call the cops. Or have a friend do it. "I heard strange male voices outside my friend's window-I thought for sure it was burglars!" It's a shame you don't have a cop buddy who can drop by to visit while in uniform.
And something I would never have the nerve to do-when they show up on your patio-you and some friends come out carrying chairs and a radio-smile and wave, and walk past them to THEIR patio,and make yourselves at home! I'm not seriously suggesting this-you have to live near them,and I don't know how they'd retaliate! But it's fun to think about.
Oh,and your plants? Buy some manure-you can buy bags of it at a garden supply-and heap it around them. Or something else gross-hey,you're just fertilizing your plants!
Got it-put an automatic sprinkler and a hose in the yard near your patio-it comes on at night? Oops, set it wrong, or hey, you use your yard during the day. It sprayed the patio? That's where your plants are, or oops, better adjust the spray.People do set sprinklers anywhere and anytime.Someone on my block had one that sprayed the sidewalk-so you had to time your walk past the house just right, or step into the street.And had the hose on the sidewalk where you'd trip on it.And god knows how early-I know it was going at 6 a.m. when I went to work.But they had to water their yard to the very edge, so they didn't care.
I love what you did to their chair!

LOL! I love how your vindictive expression of anger involves rainbows and unicorns. That's adorable.

No really, this is hilarious... and so creative! I literally laughed out loud when I read this. It's also hilarious that the neighbor opted to take a seat on the steps rather than the happy rainbow sunshine chair.

This is all too awesome.

By the way, whoever painted the chair is extremely talented! It's really cute!

I think there is  motion detected cat spray
or some other motion detector that makes an annoying noise if they get within a meter
like a croaking frog or barking dog

that you could leave on the porch....


either that or take spanish and learn  how to say hola...

 I love mexican food....  if you can get invited to a cook out your in!

sucks that such an awesome chair is going to a couple of douches.

I like the idea of some sort of alarm... although it would annoy everybody in the vicinity,not just these guys.

Maybe try planting some poison ivy? They're going to have to stick their hands into the pot to butt out their cigarettes... what, it's not your fault that they had an "allergic reaction" to your plant.

How about a simple "no trespassing" sign? If they still hang out on your porch when you've got the sign up, well then that's a crime now isn't it?
