I absolutely love this email that has been forwarded around. Check out the photo below and be sure to read the "story" at the bottom. Well worth it...
"Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.Great stories. But two things made me take it down.
First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.
Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard."
I'm tempted to put this up at our house... we live in a neighborhood surrounded by renters and college kids. My guess is that no one would try to help the guy down, rather they'd stand there and take bets as to how long he'll stay up and/or when he'll fall. Ha ha. This is hilarious, complete with the Christmas lights partially hanging down. Props for super creativity by the homeowner! Merry Christmas.
