(SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS) How many goofballs does it take to tip over a Smart car?

Andrew Smith sure wants to know. Early Monday morning, just past 1, he heard a loud racket outside his apartment in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights, and thought nothing of it. But when a neighbor knocked on his door and told him, you-gotta-see-this: His wife’s 2009 Smart Car — all 1,808 pounds of it — was sitting on its roof.

“It was pretty hard to believe,” Smith said Monday, a victim of an expensive prank that’s being compared to an urban-style of cow tipping.
