Yes, it's fairly extreme, but they did try to get the van to move before they coated it in excrement, in their defence.
Is that a defence? Maybe not. Still, it's happened now, so we'll just get on with it.
The muck-spreaders exacted their revenge on the driver - who had parked inconsiderately across a farmyard entrance while they went for a pint - and left the Transit van absolutely covered in crap.
The spreaders did say they had called up the pub in an attempt to reach the driver and give them a chance to move, but they didn't manage to get through. So they decided to empty a whole heap of slurry onto the vehicle as a form of punishment.
The farmers - who, for obvious reasons, didn't wish to be named - said this isn't the first time they've had issues with parking. They explained this instance was completely 'obstructive' and left them unable to turn their tankers as the entrance is only about 10 feet wide.
They told The Sun: "Apparently the lads doing the spreading contacted the pub and warned them but the van owner later claimed he didn't recognise his own registration number when they called it out.
"He didn't realise he was blocking the entrance to the field. He came back to find his van covered. He admitted he was totally in the wrong.
"They hosed his van down and everyone had a laugh."
Mercifully, it appears as if the whole thing was resolved amicably, with the farmer travelling along to the pub and buying 'the lads' a drink.
All's well that ends well, right?
Of course, it could have all got a lot worse, as we discovered recently when a farmer was seen flipping over a car that was poorly parked in a field near to Barnard Castle.
In that instance, nobody emerged happy, and the man who the car belonged to was seen in the video chasing the car around and attempting to stop the vehicle getting damaged.
He then confronted the forklift tractor driver as he flipped the car out of the field and onto the road, which - ironically - it was blocking in the first place.
There were no winners in that one.
