Tis' the season to be...vulgar?
A young woman in Kansas is feeling the Christmas spirit this year...or maybe some other kind of spirits is what she's feeling, because what she put on her rooftop for Christmas decorations has the whole neighborhood talking.
Shelby Gash decided to decorate her house with Christmas lights in the shape of a man’s genitals.
According to WTKR,
"Well, it looks like a p***s," Marcelo Vergara told WDAF. "A giant lit up p***s."
Until Tuesday, Marcelo and his wife Christi Vergara hadn't seen the display that's lighting up some people in their Whispering Hills neighborhood.
"Well it's certainly a statement," Vergara said. "I don’t know to what but probably not appropriate for the neighborhood."
Questions have been surrounding the monstrosity sitting on one family's roof formed by 60 feet of lights. Could it be a guitar? Maybe a funky sleigh?
"The neighborhood's kind of like vibe's kind of gone down 'cause everyone's kind of uptight," creator Shelby Gash said. "So it's more of a, kind of, orneriness."
We asked the 24-year-old what it is.
"A giant glowing d**k," Shelby responded.
At first, some neighbors got a kick out of it.
"I don't know what I would've done if I would've driven... I probably would have wrecked my car laughing," Christi said.
And that's what Shelby intended.
"People think it's hilarious," Shelby said. "People are stopping in the middle of the night taking photos and laughing. People think it's so much fun. I think there's a lot more laughter than it's bringing out anything uncomfortable."
Many of the neighbors thought it was funny at first, but were soon turned off by the display. “It’s a joke that wears out pretty quick,” Marcelo said. His wife mentioned that it wasn’t appropriate for the little kids in the neighborhood to see, and I agree.
Shelby decided to unplug the display after 4 days when she learned how much it upset the neighbors with small children.
But it looks like Ms. Gash is definitely going to be on Santa's naughty list this year after this graphic display.
