the jesus toilet.
"The members of the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Waukee have come up with a novel method of raising funds. They place a brightly painted toilet in people's front yards. The toilet has "I ♥ Jesus" written on the tank. They'll only remove the toilet if the homeowners make a donation."
I'd love for them to try that one with me.
"Ok, here's how this is going to work. I'm going to close my front door, and go fetch my sledgehammer out of the basement. If you and that thing are still on my property when I get back, I'm going to remove it." *closes door*
Does that seem a little harsh of me? My feeling is that it's basically extortion...
That's like that legendary subway musician who plays his horn really loudly and terribly and demands ten dollars to go on to the next car.
Seriously, if someone planted an "I <3 Jesus" toilet in my front yard, i'd probably fall over laughing. In fact, i think i'd leave it there, just so i could giggle some more every time i came home. I might even put some explanatory signage on it so other folks could get in on the joke.
