A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

WHAT A BLOW UP!

An inflatable Halloween lawn display wasn't as scary as a Lloyd, N.Y., woman's drunken neighbor who flew into a fit of rage and attacked her three ghosts and giant pumpkin.


Dawn Garcia told police she heard hollering and swearing before she looked outside to see her neighbor, John Odee, 43, struggling with the giant pumpkin. But, when she yelled at him to go away, he charged the house and used his head to smash a window.

Garcia called 911 and police arrested Odee after a brief struggle and charged him with burglary. He is being held in Ulster County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.

Garcia said she didn't know why her neighbor attacked the display since it was the same one she put up last year and it didn't bother him then.

Inflatable Halloween display ... $200.

Using your head so you don't have to look at the cheesy display for another year ... priceless!

I thought the giant inflatable santas and snowmen were tacky, now encroaching into other holidays. What's next? A 12 foot blow-up vinyl Jesus or worse, an entire nativity scene encompassing an entire front yard. Is so depressing to find Jesus or Baby Jesus in a heap on the lawn after it's been deflated overnite. But I guess after inflating it every morning, Christ is reborn and newly risen!
