If inflatable decorations make you want to shoot someone, you should probably consider counseling or medication.
 
2012-12-04 08:47:35 AM
No, but given how loud just one or two can get on a quiet night, i can't imagine what the sound of all those fans going at once must sound like.
 
2012-12-04 08:54:50 AM
Shoot someone? No. But they're pretty ugly, inflated or not.

In the morning they look like giants had sex on the lawn and left the used condoms.

So a bunch of inflatable Christmas decorations piled randomly on the lawn = elaborate holiday display? got it.

/good cause though

Shoot someone? A psychopathic grinch maybe. I am not murderous about it but I absolutely hate the neon style led light strings that have become popular. The colors are not Christmassie, more gay ravie.

Displays like this don't bother me because I can drive past them in a few seconds.
I think the music is far more annoying and it has kept me out of the malls this year.

'Tacky' ain't a shootin' offense 'round here, pardner.

The worst part about these setups is the army of morons who heard about it on the news last night and half-park in the middle of the road so they can stare at your neighbour's lights, oblivious to the fact that people live here and may want to get home. Also, ambulances.

This is what happens when retards forget to grow up. Believe me, this is nothing compared to what some arseholes do to decorate. Thank goodness none of them live in my neighborhood. The decorations here are quite tasteful and low key.

My only problem with the people who do excessive Christmas displays is when they play music. Light's are one thing, but I shouldn't be able to hear your music in my house with all my doors and windows closed.

The same music played over and over and over again all night long. Now THAT makes me wanna get stabby.

On my way home from work there is a house like this. They must have at least 40 of them it is a pretty big yard. Last year they left them up and running until Febuary.

Does shooting the decoration itself count?

If so, then guilty as charged. I used to shoot those things with a BB gun when I was a delinquent teenager. We also used to steal plastic Santas and Babby Jebuses, and place them in the middle of the street.

...Also would snip Christmas lights with a pair of bolt cutters....

Damn, my friends and I were little bastards.

I wanted inflatable Christmas decorations this year but Carl said they're a waste of money - so we compromised.
We now have a slutty choir of blow-up dolls on the lawn with their mouths wide open in mid-song
- and Carl has an inflatable date for every month of the year. (I ain't putting out cuz of my incontinence issues.)

I don't really like them. It irritates me that the HOA I live in complains when someone puts a shed in their backyard because someone can see it over the fence line (but you can only have a six foot high fence!) but Bubba's inflatable NASCAR Santa can sit like a trash-bag on his lawn from November to February.

However the people in this story are raising money for a good cause so I can't really complain about it.

How many Santas do you need in one display?

I didn't think it was tacky until I realized it's an army of about 40 inflatable Santas

My neighbor had an inflatable santa a few years back. The pump didn't work so well and santa was always lying in the yard like a derelict. One of the neighborhood kids taped santa's hand around an empty Jack Daniels bottle. It was pretty hilarious. My neighbor decided to leave it as it was.

That gives me such a good idea. Next year I'm going to get a bunch of them and put choir robes on them and stage them to make it look like they're singing.

It will be a true test of the neighborhood busybodies and the HOA.

A .20 caliber Sheriden air rifle is very effective in keeping these yard punks under control.

Home Depot had an inflatable Santa in a tree stand. He was holding a rifle with a terrified reindeer looking up at him. Santa even had camo on. They pulled it after a shiatload of complaints.

Inflatable decorations are too big. Those oversized balls hanging on trees, swinging in the breeze. would make nifty target practice, though.

That is awesome.

But honestly, what is the point of these things? I mean they were cute when the first came out and people put up, say, 1 of them. Now there's lawns that are just covered with these things.

Are they TRYING to have bad taste?

If you're going to waste a lot of energy inflating a balloon for a couple of weeks, I'd like to make a modest proposal: inflatable Mother-in-Law house in the back yard. You can inflate the room with the heat and fan energy you save by keeping the guest room closed and winterized.

Better yet, why not turn in-ground pool into a Mother-in-Law house? It's below ground, probably well-insulated, roomy enough. Your inlaws could live in it like a little neolithic hut. The advantages of the pool-house are many, but the greatest advantage may be that the thing would be out-of-sight, out-of-mind.

Some neighbors on my street have been putting those up during the holidays. They seem to be poor decorations in a perpetual state of being half deflated (or half inflated, depending on how you look at it.)
Might get stuck with one of the much maligned Hello Kitty in my yard this year for redacted reasons.

I admit, the idea of having a semi inflated Hello Kitty in the yard that looks like it has been face-melted with hydrofluoric acid tickles me a bit Pepto pink.

I hate those decorations, just about as tacky as you can get. China must make millions sewing them in sweatshops.
