Used as a verb, in New Zealand it commonly refers to the practice of putting roadcones in eccentric, high-up places, for example flagpoles, statues, church peaks, tall trees and traffic lights; usually by teenagers as a form of dare or attention-seeking. As with tagging and urban culture in general, the main motivation is the expected reaction of the public, and peers - thus it is common for the act to be recorded for posterity with photos and/or video and subsequently posted to social networking sites. Also occasionally called punking.
You can tell it's the holidays, all the traffic lights have been coned at the intersection.
We should try coning that statue au!
You keen to go cone that flagpole tonight?
