What's the harshest or funniest thing an owner has done to a homeowners' association?

Homeowners' associations get such bad raps, seen as bullying owners.  But HOA boards are often unaware or unwilling to follow the law and are run by amateurs, so savvy owners can definitely put them in their place.

What's the harshest or funniest thing that a homeowner has done to a homeowners' association, and gotten away with?

    This was a news story and I'm not sure how it got resolved but there was one hoa that mandated that there were only 7 colors which houses in the community could be painted.  One owner was so annoyed about this that they painted thier house all 7 colors - which was not specifically prohibited.

    A homeowner's association wouldn't let someone paint a house to look like a flag.  So instead the person painted the house all black, because that would look worse.

    A person can battle tyrannical owners councils using the rosary of the Virgin Mary, and fasting.  She is Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage.
