This is clever.  I don't live in an area where cars get stolen too
much (or maybe they don't want my piece of crap Civic -- I'm not even
sure I do).  Then again, it would be fun to go find his car and move
it a couple of spaces over, just to say "Hi, and thanks for your
private posting on the Internet."

But I really like the alligator idea.
