What a funny thing to do. This homeowner wanted to play a prank for the holidays, so put a fake man hanging from the gutter. Read his story below. I'm still laughing. I would totally be one of those stopping to help the poor guy out.

Quote from the homeowner:

"Good news is that I truly outdid 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."


  1. I literally can't stop laughing! That is soo stinkin' hilarious!!!

  2. I feel for that poor old lady who tried to rescue him!

  3. My bishop did the same thing, but it only lasted a day. His wife said she would cringe every time she heard the cars brake out front. With one guy she had to have her son finally go tell him it wasn't real.

  4. I've seen this a couple of places, but still giggle every time I see it. This is something my husband would do. I'm not sure my neighbors would appreciate his humor.

  5. Funny! I would have probably stopped to help.
