Tis the Season to be Tacky

Thanks to The Bride for putting me wise to this story: Rhode Island man creates a Chrismas Shrine featuring Paris Hilton on his front lawn. From the story:

"This is the latest in a series of artistic lawn displays decorating Moretti's lawn. Last year, he paid tribute to Martha Stewart even as he and another man faced charges for sneaking on to the domestic maven's property. The charges were later dismissed, and the men donated money to public libraries near the property. Moretti calls the incident a "big misunderstanding.""

Neighborhood reaction is mixed. One neighbor, aged 65, told the reporter "he would be upset if his young grandchildren came to associate Christmas with naked woman. He'd prefer the kids to think of Santa Claus instead.
After all, Raffonelli said, "He's been around longer.""

Woe, I say unto you, these are my people.

When I read about this this morning, I rationalized it away nothing "those Cranston people are tacky". Hold your head high.
