    They dash dreams, spoil birthdays, and cause untold headaches for millions of hard-working people every day. Why, they'd literally take candy from a baby. Who are these modern Batman villains? Porch pirates—thieves who make off with packages delivered while their intended recipients aren't home to receive them. 

    Nearly two million packages are stolen by porch pirates  every day.Chances are, you've been burned at least once or twice. Porch piracy is so common that dozens of people have taken to YouTube—if not to stop porch pirates, to express their frustration in creative ways.

    In the blockbuster smash of porch pirate retribution, a former NASA engineer rigged up a glitter bomb and a camera in a package nabbed by a porch pirate. The resulting video went hugely viral, racking up 87 million views:


    It spawned multiple sequels, including one involving fart spray and phone scammers.

    And a cottage industry of porch pirate revenge videos was born.

    And police even got into the act, baiting packages to trap would-be porch pirates:
