Man's Bizarre Holiday Decoration Causes Neighbors To Call 911, And We Can See Why

There’s a neighborhood in Boulder, Colorado, that is getting freaked out by one man’s holiday decorations. Chris Olson has had concerned community members rush into his yard, greeted both the police and the fire department, and made it onto the local news for his work here, and he seems thrilled about it.

Olsen spoke with KUSA about the dummy hanging from the edge of his roof which is so convincing, people contacted the authorities. It’s actually kind of touching that people care so much, but when it looks like someone is about to fall to their death from a roof, folks step up.

Olsen used his own clothes, stuffed with yet more of his clothes, and he got a lot of the details nailed down perfectly. Gloves, hat, warm parka. This dummy is dressed better than I am.

Up close you may not be convinced, but from a distance, it really does look like a guy was stringing up his lights, then took a tumble:

Olsen says that he and his wife have had to go out in the yard to reassured freaked out Good Samaritan’s that the dummy is fine and not a real person. 

They also say that if they do it again next year (they will), they plan to contact the local police so they know not to rush over with the fire trucks. Apparently, the officers who responded to the emergency call were amused, and didn’t even ticket Olsen. 

Guess it’s slow around Christmas?

People Are Convinced Donald Trump Pretended To Be His Secretary In A Bizarre 1992 Letter

Back in 1992, a woman claiming to be Donald Trump’s secretary, going by the name of Carolin Gallego, wrote into the New Yorkmagazine, defending Trump against an article by one of the magazine’s writers, Julie Baumgold. 

The letter recently resurfaced online because people are convinced it was written by the now-President Trump. Why? Let’s just say that it’s in his style…

Just look at that last sentence. It’s worth noting that Trump’s assistant for years was a woman named Norma Foerderer. She retired in 2005 and was replaced by Rhona Graff. 

To top it off, Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen told the Washingtonian that he doesn’t recognize the name as someone who had worked for Trump. 

This wouldn’t be the first time Trump has pretended to be someone else. In 2016 the Washington Postreported that Trump would call media outlets under the names “John Miller” and “John Barron,” to give quotes and insights about himself. In 1990, Trump testified that he used those names “on occasion.” 

Twitter seems convinced, though.
