Proof that people are STUPID!!

Ok, I have it. Finally, proof that people are, in fact, too stupid. Break out the chlorine, time for a scrubbing..

Just wait for a big wind storm and someone sees them fall. Can you just think of the emotional impact that would have on some young female driver.

So I guess if you were driving by and happen to see this you would automatically think it's fake. That there is no possible way a person could be up there. I think it shows ,the fact that there were people who were concerned, that the human race isn't in the crapper yet. that's just my opinion.

but he's NOT bigger than life, it's a manequin, it's life size. The teddy bear has nothing to do with it. I think the dealership showed a complete lack of judgement putting this up. If it were you or me throwing a dummy out a window or putting one on top of a building we would be thrown in jail.

If you're driving on an interstate doing at least 65-70 mph, probably more like 80-90, and you glance at up at a billboard to see what could possibly be someone in danger you wouldn't do anything about it? Now mind you I guarantee not one of the people who called stopped to see what was going on, but I still think it shows that there are people out there who are concerned for their fellow man.

Then they had no reason to call.... "Uh, yeah, I saw some stuff over on the interstate, and uh... kept going... but, uh... you may wanna send somebody over there"


We had a sign company around hang one up for the local ER that was a guy hanging of the bottom like he had actually fallen with a misplaced ladder and all, and the way he hung the wind moved him a lil and it looked like somebidy hanging on. I thought it was hilarious.
