    Shootin' Santa Turns Heads

    Santa's up to no good in one Louisiana family's front yard.

    The Christmas display in Princeton, Louisiana is turning a few heads.

    "It came up just kind of as a joke, trying to do something Christmasy without the lights, just do something random. Totally different," explained Matthew Caillouet.

    While other folks string their homes with twinkling lights and scenes of Christmas joy the Caillouets went a different route.

    Using wooden cutouts, they have jolly ol' Saint Nick with a shotgun, aiming at none other than that red-nosed reindeer, Rudolph.

    The Caillouets have been putting up their tongue-in-cheek display for seven years, and in that time, it's caused quite a stir.

    "You either love it or you hate it. I've had people say they were going to tear it down. Others say they'll fight to keep it up," Matthew said.

    Even the house was divided over the display.

    "Mom was against it, and Grandma was really against it. They didn't want to cause trouble."
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
    [George Washington (1732 - 1799)]

    Loosen up people!!!




    Isn't the spirit of Christmas embodied in the thought of killing reindeer anyway?

    You'd thing Grandma would have been on board with this, considering the song "Grandma got ran over by a Reindeer"

    oh this is funny i want one

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
