Pantyhose Corner
For more than two years someone has been dumping pantyhose near Geneseo Circle in Milford, Massachusetts. Residents report that new pantyhose appear three to four times per week. One day (the record, I assume) there were 43 pairs. From bostonchannel.com:

Most of the pairs of pantyhose are black and "queen sized," neighbors said. Some residents are considering using video cameras and walkie-talkies to catch the culprit.

I wonder if this is, in any way, related to Shoe Corner in Hanover Township, New Jersey -- the place where shoes keep mysteriously getting dumped?

What a bunch of idiots!!! Why spoil the fun of a harmless prank? It would be best to just let it go, and keep a little fun in their stuffy little corner of the world...

Are you sure you mean "Hanover Township, NJ", rather than "Hanover Township, IA"? I can't find Calumet and 109th in Hanover Township in New Jersey, but I can in IA.

Need to pick up some queen-size pantyhose, Bill?

I consider this closer to art, or at least a fun gesture, other than doing something against the law. I mean it's Pantyhose. They're Fun!
Maybe he is making a fashion statement. "Ladies, we love to see you in sexy pantyhose!"

You seem to mean in Lake County, Ind., not N.J. (nor Iowa).
