It’s October, and we are going to see a lot of zany Halloween stuff out in the yards. My neighbor has two giant moving spiders in her yard that scare the beejesus out of my dog. I’ll be snapping the wilder homes I see out there — feel free to send in what you find, too. This yard is in Colleyville and was found on Kathleen Thompson’s blog — I think I just found a Colleyville community reporter! Anyhow, it depicts what many feel this election season: none of the candidates out there are too great and in fact, they may all be crooks! Or spiders!
Let the debates begin!
UPDATE FROM JO: Obviously, the title isn’t meant to be offensive, but descriptive. As Thompson says on her blog, “I read this as ‘The Romney/Ryan Web of Deceit.'” The actual meaning is, of course, open to your interpretation. Let’s stay classy, folks.
UPDATE FROM CANDY: Whoa, apologize if I have offended anyone. I spent the day south of the Trinity and must say, saw no Halloween decorations this elaborate. Which was my whole point: a community’s holiday decor says so much. Park Cities is Halloween on steroids, overloaded with haunted inflatables and hay, 90 lb gourds and moving witches. This Colleyville display is elaborate and also quite political — but I want to go on record as saying that having the President and Vice President of the United States hanging from a tree is not cool. If I were the neighbors, I might ask that President Obama get out of the tree. P.S. Sometimes I lean right, sometimes left. Getting more ambidextrous in my old age!
UPDATE II: We are trying to contact the homeowner. The Dallas Morning News went out to the house for close-ups, and it appears that President Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden (as a clown) are caught in Romney’s spider web — not a tree, though the web is hanging from a tree. They have a bag of money between them. And the President sports a clown nose, so maybe they are both clowns. Here are the close-ups:
I am just now seeing the hammer and sickle on the money bag — no its a dollar sign, wow. Bet this display took some time to pull together!
