This is the Halloween yard display created by Vicki Barrett and her husband of Parma, Ohio. Apparently some parents are complaining because there's an elementary school less than a block away and it's frightening the kids. I can see why. Hell, I'm a grown-ass man (only physically -- not mentally) and it's frightening me.
Parma officials say there is nothing they can do about it because the display represents freedom of expression.
"We don't want to scare kids. We just want to do the Halloween fun of it and but definitely no ill intent, no," explained Vicki Barrett.
Barrett says she and her husband haven't had any complaints. She says she even has a two-year-old and a special needs teenager andwould never do anything to purposely frighten children.
"If it's scaring some kids and we knew they're having a hard time leaving school, yeah, we may have toned it down," Barrett said.
Admittedly, that's a pretty intense Halloween display. Mine is much tamer. I usually just carve a jack-o-lantern. Then I lay on my porch and cover myself with all the blood and internal organs the butcher at the grocery store will sell me. When any trick-or-treaters come I claw at them and beg them to finish me off. Haha, I am the king of Halloween! But seriously, please nobody call the cops this year, that shit's getting old.
Keep going for one more shot of an impaled figure in the yard.
Thanks to Patricia, who always answers the door on Halloween revving a chainsaw. Please tell me you at least took the blade off first.
