The Greatest Christmas Decoration Ever!



(I Received This In An E-Mail This Morning)
(Don't Forget To Read Description Below Image)






"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."

Demosthenes said...

I'll bet if you dressed him up like Santa people would double-take but not think it was real.

Samer said...

Absolutely fantastic. Maybe next year, you may want to put a sign :)

Dr. Rawk. said...

That is seriously funny.

zorca777 said...

mebbe dress him as santa!

Mr.Monge said...

Seriously - Dress him like Santa, and put a sign up. Like "Stay Off the lawn, he's fine"

Jim said...

if you went hand to hand towards the window, you could have planted your feet in the screens and climbed back up to the roof? ;)

Harold Fowler said...

HILARIOUS!!!

PhantomV48 said...

Man, you were just gonna leave that Little Giant ladder sit out there unattended??? Of course, not like any one human could pick it up to steal it.

Jessica Murr said...

That's the BEST Christmas decoration I've ever seen! Yes, dress him as Santa & put him back!!

filmmaker said...

wow, thanks for the great laugh (or whoever emailed it!)

Anonymous said...

Thanks paul.it sure would get the traveling public,to get there eyes away from driving.

Joshua Zimmerman said...

Kudos to the people who tried to save "you". Amazing decoration though! Probably spices up the neighborhood a bit.

Sandy said...

hhahaah classic ...sort of like my photo http://www.fotocommunity.com/pc/pc/mypics/535851/display/7414689

Hit747 said...

I love how someone is taking a picture instead of helping out LMAO

Saito said...

omg that's epic win!

mary said...

Thanks for a great laugh!

sofia said...

i think it is really wonderful that so many people just immediately rushed in to "HELP"!!!

Myles said...

the best part is the person who could help the poor man is the camera man, and he's busy taking the picture!

"Help, I'm falling and I can't get up!!"

philly said...

Awesome! I bet those people who stopped to help feel like idiots now. What assholes! Bet they'll never do that again!

Mr. Plank said...

Brilliant stuff, love it.

dude said...

definitely santa next year

deniska said...

HILARIOUS!!!!!

Gregg P. said...

You could also try making a big word balloon out of plywood and mounting it beside him, saying "WHOA!" or something -- would be enough of a visual cue for people to put two-and-two together...

KrayonKel said...

Another idea: You could put a big sign that says FAIL.

Anonymous said...

actually the best part is the fact people look at the picture and not read the description and in turn make a complete fool out of themselves!

Anonymous said...

I think you are faking people out in this thread too... its a decoration not a real person.... haha great decoration

Ben said...

it's not even that far of a fall! people are too kind these days

Scott said...

Of course, now if it happened for real and someone slipped off the ladder, passersby would just say "ah, don't worry - it's just a decoration..."

mike said...

pure genius

Anonymous said...

OGG!!!! That was great, made my day...LOL

Anonymous said...

Pretty stupid idea really, you didn't see any problems with that huh? At least you seemed to be concerned with the old lady nearly killing herself.

Anonymous said...

Next year have "him" hang out the bedroom window with his pants around his ankles!

dennisthemennis.co.uk said...

that is a great idea but im always in trouble so I dont think ill give it a go. Just brilliant, thanks for the laughs.

Anonymous said...

At least it shows how many good people there are in the world, who would stop everything and risk themselves to save a stranger.

Glad you took it down for the safety of others. It was a cute idea.

little bird said...

i love it!!!!
so creative and funny...

Black Google Search Engine said...

mrsfischy said...

EXCELLENT!! - Did you have the lights on at night?

Christina said...

You have to admire the creativity! Love it.

Kanaga Siva said...

Shockingly Funny!!!

Anonymous said...

You should've put a brown stain on the back of the jeans, you know, to add to the realism.

Cathy ~ Tadpoles and Teacups said...

Too funny!!

Anonymous said...

I gotta admit that I would have prob. swiped the Little Giant ladder. Those co$t! and don't fall out from under you.

Anonymous said...

What's really funny is next year when this happens to you, no one is going to help out.

Good laugh otherwise.

Jill said...

Hey - at least some people stopped to try to help the poor thing! There ARE good people out there! Great idea!

Margaret Waage said...

Is this your original content? I'm interested in using the photo for a poster. Can you direct me to source?

SAS ADMIN said...

Nope this is not my original content. I received this in an e-mail from a friend who sent it to me. Not sure about the source. Sorry.

Mike said...

Funny. In my neighborhood, he'd be called Target Practice.

awesome

Inwit said...

Brilliant idea, I love it!

Kelly said...

haha! This is WONDERFUL!

WoundedEgo said...

It would be awesome to have the ladder deliver a low voltage shock! Or, have an automatic sprinkler kick on as they approached!

Adam said...

If you are curious about the story behind it, check the below post. Done by a local neighboor. We had a fun time till the police came, lol. http://adamfaragalli.com/2009/12/the-greatest-christmas-decoration-ever/

Here's another similar one. It got 911 calls. http://jackhole.net/Christmaslights.jpg
I think they are both hilarious, but I will admit, I would probably have a Heart attack if I saw it!

Mandee said...

Absolutely hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

Anonymous said...

What I like is all the idiots who comment that think it's a real person! That's worth it also!

Alberto said...

Will someone in the USA please grasp this opportunity and do something with it...COME ON..!!

Lukas said...

That is so funny! I wanna try something similiar :)

Anonymous said...

hang by one arm turned facing road and apply a mask from one of the celeb costume shops. Such as Obama or the late Ted Kennedy... might add a more humorous aspect and let the poor fools know its a fake... otherwise wonderful, wish i had thought of it...

Anonymous said...

That was an awesome stunt! Thanks so much for the great laugh! We must meet sometime! Cheryle

w.o.w and LOL

Kimberly said...

Shit! It looks like Michael Jackson from Thriller!!!

Susan said...

Awesome!! I love it!! Wish I'd thought of it!

ChristianHaiku said...

That's too bad. It was a hilarious idea!

Mike said...

I probably would have dropped his pants around his ankles too and had him wearing candy cane boxers or something.

Anonymous said...

Fantastic idea, to make it even more realistic you could have done the "boxers hanging out" and pant's halfway down the cheeks which seems to be all the rage these days!

Anonymous said...

This guy must be a ton of fun at the Christmas party- love it!

Slow Christmas said...

Ha! And also a dark social commentary about the holidays.

Medina Miller said...

Funniest, best, most creative Christmas decoration, EVER. This was awesome. I am with others who say to make him look more like Santa and then people won't stop.

Anonymous said...

How does someone who's that close not tell its a dummy? The fact that it's motionless, maybe the fact that it doesn't respond to talking. Hmm lets climb the ladder and help it out.

MK said...

waooowwww....

Rie Sheridan Rose said...

Absolutely love it. Puts the Santa hanging off my neighbor's roof to shame. Wish I could have taken a picture myself...

Anonymous said...

Now that's what I call a dangerous sense of humor! Hilarous!

Juris said...

PERFECT!!!
One of the best jokes in 2009 :) :thumpsup:

A White House filled with incompetence and this brilliant lady is available. What a sad Christmas.

meeanne said...

try it again, but maybe wrap the end of the lights around him so he'll be visible at night, and ppl might see that he's not struggling and figure it's fake

Scanman said...

I think I typed my email wrong. Keryscanlon1@aol.com. My house and decoration. Be glad to share other stories

Mike said...

A neighbor of ours had this decoration up as well and the cops came by and made him take it down because they had received too many 911 calls about it.

mayankkewlguy said...

Tyson said...
