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)]

Isn't the spirit of Christmas embodied in the thought of killing reindeer anyway?No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13

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 onehttp://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
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
