    My neighbor called me out, what should I do?

    He sent his ugly 15 year old boy to tell my adorable 14 year old daughter that their Christmas lights smoke our house. Should I congratulate him on a fine looking display or should I hit Big Lots and Lowe's, take a day off from work and send the generators at Hoover Dam into hyper-drive? I've been called out, its a testosterone thing, dang it.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Gift wrap a box of "snug-fit" condoms and leave them on his doorstep, with a circle of lights around them.

    Are you and your neighbour friends? We have a fun competition in our neighbourhood where we all try to outdo each other. If you are friends, then sure, put up some extra lights and have fun with it. If you're not, then maybe ignore the challenge if you can.

    Sorry Luddite, but I don't understand where you get "inbred" from. Daspydyr said the boy was "ugly".

    The only viable solution is to napalm their house.

    huh, are you certain this is the boy Daspydyr is talking about because I've seen this photo elsewhere and I'm certain it
    wasn't in relation to Daspydyr's neighbour.

    Its on, we have been competing at everything for years. Its a blast. Me vs Barry! BBQing, Halloween, Super Bowl parties! When we golf people blush and let us go our own way. The really fun part is more and more neighbors are into it. And yes Clark Griswald is inspiring. We close Thanksgiving weekend watching "Christmas Vacation." And of course, my kids are smarter and better looking than his tribe!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I was actually being lazy in not getting a decent amount of decorating done. We travelled for Thanksgiving. I deserved being called out.

    Your penance should be say something like 3 times the amount of normal decorations.
    Except for the fact that I never decorate. Ah well. Hypocrisy is the Amercan way
