Decoration was a little too real

SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) - October 5, 2011

Someone called 9-1-1 to report a man trapped under a riding mower in Salisbury, N.C.

But it's just a little scary fun from Chris Deaton.

He's created what looks like a body with bloodstained jeans under the mower's blades.

But the supposed victim can't be in that bad of shape, because he's holding a beer can.

A local paper reports Deaton had the same display last year.

But this time around, he's moved his mower accident closer to the road.
