    Greg sends along this DIY FYI:

    "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 know the cops have to be responsible and tell you that, but did they atleast laugh a little before or after they shook their finger at you? :)

    That is a classic one there.

    And as for the cops have been there as they came by my place years ago and said people were calling saying we were hanging a dog:huh: Turned out the pit bull hanging from a strap that he played with caused a problem.
