My variation of that idea is not motivated by raising funds, however. Instead, it would offer a public service by reminding our neighbors of what’s right, what’s just. Instead of flamingos, we would use TURKEYS—turkeys that would be placed in the yards of those guilty of the unforgivable sin of premature Christmas lighting.
The early illuminati may THINK they’re just beating the rush when they plug in those roof lights in mid-November, but really, they’re just negating the glory of Thanksgiving, the celebration of gratitude complete with pilgrims and cornucopias and gourds and yes, turkeys. Our Turkey Tornado™ would gently remind those overly eager homeowners to tap the brakes and make time for Tom.
So who’s with me? Ready to invest? This project would be considered an act of kindness, a gentle reminder that the halls can wait to be decked. Can't you see it? The next time you pass by a prelit home, instead of just giving your neighbors a dirty look, you could give them the bird.
