Giant Yard Skeletons

Has anyone else seen these 12 foot monstrosities that are being left up year-around? It’s becoming a thing with millennial Karens and their Chad husbands who think they’re edgy and are incapable of doing anything with subtlety. Seems like the type of thing that some former mid-2000s punk rockers turned corporate drones would do to seem cool as they approach middle age. Complete trash.

There's one on my way to/from work - not a skeleton, but a tall, huge werewolf. I imagine there's no place to properly store it, so they just embraced the fact it would be kept up year round.

Yeah, there's one in my neighborhood that they dress according to whatever holiday is nearby. Right now it's dressed as Uncle Sam 🙄

Can someone explain the thought process? Storage issue? Lazy? Defiant rebel? Dumb trends/dumb bitches?

^ Yes

It could work in conjunction with a yard globe atop a resin Corinthian pedestal.

These are the McMansions of seasonal decorations — stupidly out-of-scale with everything surrounding them. I doubt they last more than a few years before breaking down from sunlight damage and hauled off to the landfills.

^ I'm in a tornado prone area. I'm just waiting for one of these to go sailing through someone's house giving grandma a heart attack 😂

One of my neighbors keeps a giant skeleton out front all year round. It even has an ad for its Instagram page. I picture the neighbors along the lines of OP’s description.

R4, how appropriate.

This woman is out of her mind, but the result is epic:

Tacky, but, I honestly don't care what other people put in their yards.

And here I thought people from Giuliana Rancic's home planet were invading!

It's edgy to be an emotional cripple and make too much of seasonal holiday decorations, Xmas trees, Halloween skeletons, whatever, leaving them up way too fucking long (or forever until they melt and dissolve and blow away) as crutches for the emotionally underdeveloped.

Maybe some people display Halloween decoration year-round as a Jehovah’s Witness repellant.

I actually watched that disco ball skeleton video.

I mean, I can't really say anything bad about it/her, because at least she was very excited to do it and produce a cool-looking (for Halloween) skeleton. She had fun doing it. I can't really bag on people that have weird hobbies and their enthusiasm over it. It's like me and gardening, honestly.

I CAN bag on the people that buy these monstrosities and are fairly short-sighted about storage of them - or just plain lazy, now that I've seen they are fully able to be dis-assembled, and don't take them down after the holiday.

I decorate my yard with naked men.

This is why I keep a missile launcher in my garage.
