fingering your neighbors for christmas

Hold the presses. I'm not ready to give Batgirl her award yet.

Peat of Diversionz has found a link to what may be the most offensive - yet oddly amusing - Christmas decoration yet:

You don't have to look very carefully to spot the giant wooden middle finger among the lawn Santas, reindeer and lights in one Pompano Beach neighborhood.

The homeowner said he was inspired when someone speeding by his yard hit and killed his Jack Russel terrier, Whiskey....

...His finger, according to city officials, is a personal expression on private property. So for now, the unique display will remain.

I think he should have at least strung some festive lights on it, or at least blared this song through speakers. It would make a much bolder statement.

Do you ever watch MadTV? They did a series of claymation type spoofs of the classic Rudolf shows combined with The Godfather movies. The first one is called The Reinfather. I managed to download it a while ago and I would be happy to try and email it to you if you are interested. There was a third one that crossed Rudolf and Apocolypes Now called A Pack of Gifts Now. Have not been able to find that one but it is killer.

oops. Sorry.

Ok, I come in here to comment and now I can only think Rudolph + Godfather and what a great idea that is...

And yes, I think this one definitely is an award winner. And yes, he needs to have lit the thing up, maybe strung some tinsel on it, a few ornaments - just think it could be a substitute for the traditional yard tree...

A bold statement indeed. Touching monument to a dead terrier. Looking at this innovative road sign, though, I must ask...does the bereaved iconophile in question have two thumbs, perchance?

The Mr. T experiance Rocks.

Is it just me or does that hand have six fingers?

do you still have the reinfather?

Desperately seeking those Corky Quackenbush Claymations..."The Reinfather" and "A Pack of Gifts Now".
Can anyone help? I've surfed for days with no luck.
