(n) Cone-shaped life form, often orange but occasionally green and very rarely fluoro yellow. Often gathers with similar species around construction sites. Different species of cones are rarely found intermixed with one another.
Species range from very small (sidewalk, 20cm high by 15cm wide) to regular (city, 40cm high by 25cm wide) to huge (highway, 1m high by 45cm wide)
Often the victims of "coneing" (v), a non-competitive team sport where the participants collect large numbers of cones and store them for later use.
Anti-coneing (v) is the opposite action. Usually constituted by coneing off an unpopular person or persons' driveway or street, or simply using cones as crude projectile weapons thrown from moving vehicles.
Anti-coneing is often accompanied by shooting paintballs from slingshots at random targets (usually white vans or 4x4's), and general delinquency.
