Christmas Lights Guy

I rarely post something I got in an e-mail forward, but I loved this:


Here is the text of the e-mail: (source unknown)

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.

It was fun while it lasted

Hope you get a kick out of it too! I thought it was pretty creative, but can totally see why the poor guy had to take it down! It’s something I’d do but my wife would make me take it down long before the police would get a chance too! Merry Christmas!

  3. Karl,

    If you ever DO decide to do this, let me know. I would be happy to drive my car onto your lawn, you know, to add to the ambiance of the scene…..
