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

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?

ManateeGag: I have one of them in front of my house. it's Frosty. who doesn't like Frosty?

IMMA COME SHOOT YOUR FROSTY. Put the kids and pets inside. You brought this on yourself.

It's awesome that they're using all of that crap as a fundraiser, but that shelter only helps babies six months or younger (and their families, of course). What about older children?

doubled99: I clicked on the story, Ray.

You... you sir, are a funny, funny man.

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.

NutWrench: 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.

/Siiiimmmmplyyyy haaavving, a wonderful Christmas time!

Goddammit. Now it's stuck. Fark you, man.

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 like the old school plastic Santas and such from my youth. Just think what today's children are gonna miss when they get older. That's right, blow up decorations.

I like them. And all kinds of inflatable things.

/I would.

Oak: I don't hate them, but I also wonder what these peoples' electrical utilities did to make these folks love them so much.

Had 3 on my front yard last year (A six footer and two fours) the increase in my electric bill was negligible.

/just FYI

That's not how you do it. You have to slide it off onto the bar. That you can just flip.

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

if you shoot inflatable Christmas decorations your heart is obvious two sizes too small.

This is close to my house. I always greet Dr. G with "Is this the meeting for Inflatables Anonymous."

He really is a great guy.

If the world ends on 12/21/12 and in 1000 years when they start digging up xmas decorations. They will say it's from some kind of fertility ceremony.

ABSOLUTELY the worst Christmas song EVER, IMHO.

/and I otherwise like Paul
