This Pole Dancing Skeleton Was Banned From Town Authorities, Boo!
Last week I wrote a post about how Halloween decorations might have reached peak grossness and gruesomeness. We have all seen the way over the top decorations that are now everywhere on the streets of New England. 20 foot tall skeletons in all states of macabre. Some holding long scythes that we can assume are to be used to slice their intended victims to pieces, some are smothered in blood and other ghostly ghastly slime. And now pole dancing skeletons?
Too sexy for their own good?
Every year, there are debates over controversial Halloween decorations . . . usually because they’re graphic or gruesome. It’s rarely because they’re TOO SEXY
Some residents of a neighborhood in Utah are upset about a Halloween decoration that shows a skeleton POLE-DANCING . . . on a STREET SIGN. Two other skeletons sit on chairs nearby . . . holding up fake bills.
A dreary sense of humor?
The guy who created the display is Christopher Fujishin. After seeing his inspiration we assume he likes to get a little charge out of his neighbors. As it turns out, not all of them take very kindly to his idea of “fun with skeletons”. So much so, that a few complained . . . and the city told him he needed to take it down, because it’s a code violation to have anything hanging on a street sign . . . even skeletal erotic dancers. (Here’s a photo.)
So much for a dancing bone show
Christopher complied . . . but he just moved the display onto his own property. He also made it BIGGER, and added lights, music, and more skeletons
Neighbors who LIKE the display have even dropped off their own decorations to ADD to it. Others still don’t like it. One neighbor said, “I guess teaching our children respect, decency, and manners has gone by the side.
In fairness, Halloween isn’t a huge “decency” and “manners” holiday. Christopher admits that it’s a “little risqué,” but he says it’s just meant to be fun. He also says, “If kids understand what that is . . . maybe the problem is something else.”
