Abominable Turkey

I wish I could offer lovely sights like my friend N (Life in Paris blog). Alas, I have to go with what's available in this neck of the woods:

Yes, he's eight feet of pulsating poultry. You may commence disgusted clucking noises.

I should add a disclaimer - he's certainly NOT in my yard! This is what the neighbors subject us to. His predecessor was a 10-ft-diameter inflatable jack-o-lantern, and I feel unhappily certain he'll be followed by a huge, puffy snowman. Grrr.

Is this a tribute to a disfigured turkey? LOL!!

I can only imagine what it may be during the day (was this taken at dusk?) at least at night you cannot see it that clearly. :)

Tell your neighbour not to make many of these. ;D

HA! You just gave me the biggest laugh. Too funny, D.

And, you know, it's not nearly as bad as those horrifying geese statues that people dress up to change with the season/holiday.

But I have to ask - I get the pilgrim hat, insofar as anyone can "get" poultry in millnery. But whence the neckerchief/tie/scarf? I do not recall the Purtain fashion of donning red checkered neckercheifs.

LOL @ 'poultry in millinery'!

As for the red-n-white neckerchief, I can only imagine it is a nod to the *day after*, when leftovers go Italian in the infamous Turkey Tetrazzini.

Oh, I am in tears from laughing! It could have been worse. Well, maybe... I think... :)

Happy Thanksgiving, D! Hope that your day has been wonderful.

Oh my dear Lord! I feel your pain! The lovely folks in our neighborhood have already started putting up their inflatable light-up Grinches and snowmen. If those don't qualify as justification for a BB-gun spree, I don't know what would! When did these gigantic lighted lawn ornaments become popular, and WHY? Why, God, why?!?

LOL - 'BB-gun spree'! What a grand idea!

I feel compelled to add that my neighbor here in lovely Orange County, California has some type of 5' tall inflatable bull. Texas Longhorns or such?
