I live on South Main Street (busy busy street in our town) and am planning on hanging an effigy from a tree in my front yard.

I don't want it to be slanderous. What should the sign around the neck read?

Fair warning for those that don't realize that we no longer live in a free country, there was an efigy hanged within the last couple of days here, and the FBI is investigating...:) Seems effigy's are ok, as long as they're NOT BLACK. I refuse to go further about the level of brain death involved...

Yeah, hanging a black effigy seems a little callous. This guy will be white... Might draw a Guy Fawkes "V" face on him...

Lets just say I believe in the free market when it comes to effigy's, callous or otherwise, it's fair game....:)

This would be pretty easy and cheap to do right now, as there are lots of those autumn "scarecrows" in the stores now.

Hmmm....

"Taxation Without Representation"

I like to add "Inflation Is..." before that.

As for the OP, American Taxpayer is great and seeing how it's almost Halloween you shouldn't have too many problems with it. Maybe a lot more beeping when people drive by your house :D
