It's an Inflatables Pandemic!
Bloated Santas and snowglobes cover more yards than Chem Lawn. Stop this trend now! Or just imagine what's coming:
--Inflatables will replace bobbleheads as giveaways. See larger-than-life Charlie Manuel above.
--The ACLU will sue towns over inflatable baby Jesus scenes.
--Writers like me will ask what famous people, besides Rush Limbaugh and T.O., would be perfect lawn icons because they're such windbags with inflated egos.
--Mini-inflatables will appear on hats and dashboards.
--Anna Nicole Smith will be mistaken for an inflatable.
--A divorce will make headlines for involving inflatables.
--Sotheby's will sell an inflatable of Van Gogh's Sunflowers for $147 million.
--Banks will display the ultimate icon of inflatability, the U.S. dollar.
--Jay Leno will make jokes about Viagra inflatables.
