Ku Klux Klan Snowman Built as Holiday Decoration by Iowa Man

Mark Eliseuson  decided he wanted something different in his frontyard this winter. Something to reflect his political/social commentary tastes, perhaps. Whatever the reason, the Hayden, Iowa resident decided to use the snow dropped by the latest storm to erect a 10-foot Ku Klux Klan snowman --  complete with a noose dangling from his arm --  as a way to entertain his neighbors.

His neighbors, however, were not amused. They complained to deputy officials, and the Eliseuson was told that he could possibly be charged with creating a public nuisance. Notice I wrote COULD BE CHARGED since no charges have yet been filed. I guess they offiicials had to go get an okay to file the charges.

Someone else, though, felt that the action needed to be taken immediately, and the snowman in the front yard is now headless.

Eliseuson has made no public statement as to why he decided to build the snowman, but this same guy also gave out bullet casings to children on Halloween, claiming he'd run out of candy.

Can't wait to see how this guy celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day in January, huh?
