Christmas Prank causes a stir..

The following photo show some Christmas humor.

But, people reacted in a more serious manner than was thought.


People driving by seen this man hanging precariously from the roof, Ladder tipped over.

But, this was not real.  Police was called and a traffic started to pile up.

It was not long before the Police got a hold of the home owner and ordered it taken down.

It was a great prank, but had farther reaching consequences than expected.

I've seen these before and been fooled, too. Funny but I can understand folks' concerns.

Good morning William.  I can see where this would cause a traffic jam.  Hopefully there were no accidents or better that no one was injured.

I don't like such pranks, Bill, as they can tie up first responders in the wrong way.

Funny, but the resources it takes to calm the public is costly

Good morning William. Too bad the guy had to come down. It really is good.

That does look real and all the calls to the police show people are still willing to help. Oh what a prank.

Hi William.  I can understand the concern from those passing by.  Great idea, but the execution needs some tweaks.

Surprising that people would call the police rather than just go over and put the ladder back in place.
