A woman in Lenexa, Kansas is definitely on the naughty list this Christmas because of a light display in suburban Johnson County. In fact, the display is downright graphic and had to be blurred out due to its mature content.
The lights are what appears to be a man’s genitals. Although some neighbors speculated that it could be a guitar or maybe some misshapen sleigh.
Neighbors Marcelo and Christi Vergara saw the display that lit up their small suburban neighborhood. Christi said “Well it’s certainly a statement. I don’t know to what but probably not appropriate for the neighborhood.”
“I don’t know what I would’ve done if I would’ve driven… I probably would have wrecked my car laughing,” Christi said.
The creator is a 24-year-old Shelby Gash. When asked about it she said “The neighborhood’s kind of like vibe’s kind of gone down ’cause everyone’s kind of uptight. So it’s more of a, kind of, orneriness.”
At first, some neighbors got a kick out of it which is 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.”
But then neighbors were turned off by the image. “It’s a joke that wears out pretty quick,” Marcelo said. His wife also commented that it wasn’t appropriate for the little kids in the neighborhood.
After hearing how much it upset the neighbors with small children, Shelby decided it was best to unplug the lights and take down the display. The lights lasted for only four days, not nearly as long as Shelby had anticipated. She only wishes that the neighbors had come to her if they were really bothered about it.
