If inflatable decorations make you want to shoot someone, you should probably consider counseling or medication.

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.

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.

I would not shoot someone.

Unplugging compressors?

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.

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

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.

If what someone else does with their life does not affect you and still bothers you beyond the reaction of "I guess Ill go somewhere else" The problem is YOU.

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.

We have two blow up animals in our front yard. A cat and a dog dressed like Santa. I don't care who thinks they're tacky, we like em.

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.)

If I knew who you were I'd key your car every chance I got.

That would be just as funny.

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

I feel like these inflatable decorations are the epitome of laziness. I always expect the homeowners to be fat ass hippo-people.

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.

Christmas = 2 months of displaying Chinese plastic by the shovel load.

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