Fallen Ladder Joke Christmas Decoration

This was my Christmas decoration this year. Well, there is good news and bad news about my Christmas decorations this year. The 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 and 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. Kind of feel like I gave in to the man by taking him down but my neighbor did confirm to near miss accidents on the busy street next to my house. I think I made him too real this time. Well it was fun while it lasted.

Oh my! When I first started editing this photo, I thought it was real too! Very funny, but I can see why it might cause some traffic accidents. At least you got a good photo.

Merry Christmas!

I thought this was hilarious! I could totally see why you had to take it down though. Good for a laugh, but not so funny if you were to get sued. I showed it to everyone in my family and they loved it too!


Perhaps if you had made him into a Santa, people would realize right away that it is decoration. Hmmm... Thanks for a much-needed giggle!

That's pretty funny . . . I like your sense of humor! Too bad you had to take it down, but at least it was fun while it lasted (and you got a pic to share!). Thanks for sharing!
