Artist creates some unusual Santas

OBERLIN, Ohio (AP) - December 4, 2008

The northern Ohio artist has created a Santa Claus in a wheelchair.

And he's being pushed down the stairs by a crazed tree.

The Santa in McGuckin's installation has no legs because of an accident involving alcohol and some power lines.

It's not the first time McGuckin has created controversy with his Christmas displays.

In 2006, he made gingerbread Nazis that drew so many complaints, they were removed from a store window.

His current legless Santa is on display at the Oberlin Public Library.
