It's a Psycho Penguin Christmas!

It's a week before Christmas and there's no snow on the ground.  (I love living in the South!)  We headed out grocery shopping yesterday and near our house we spotted this.  This house usually has about a half dozen blow up decorations on the lawn.  You know the type, 8 foot tall blow up decorations that are kept filled by a big fan in the botton and some are even lighted from within. 

At night, the homeowner usually shuts them down to conserve energy but in the early light of morning, you  get a whole new look.  The penguin, front and center is not the inflated type, and thus gives this whole scene a somewhat CSI meets Stephen King sort of look.  

My wife and I looked at this and we both  got the same impression.  The penguin went all Norman Bates on the rest of the lawn gang. (You can almost hear those violins from the shower scene in Psycho going  EEEE EEEE EEEE !)  Even the little Christmas tree at the right is leaning over as if smashed by the Psycho Penguin.  
I slammed on the brakes and was out taking pictures in a flash.  I got back in the car to find my wife singing  "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  EEEE EEEE EEEE EEE"  - yeah, I''m gonna sleep good now...
All this one is missing is a chalk outline...

Hope you have a good and Very Non Psycho-Penguin Christmas!
