A Facebook called “Frank the Christmas Gargoyle” is gaining a lot of followers as it documents the increasing number of silly Christmas decorations accumulating on someone’s stoop.
The owner of that stoop is apparently in a longstanding feud with the neighborhood Karen over what’s considered proper Christmas decorating in the neighborhood.
“So one of my neighbors left me a note informing me that my gargoyle statue is ‘not appropriate’ and ‘not in keeping with the Christmas spirit,'” Their first post reads. “They firmly suggested that I ‘rectify the situation immediately.’ Well problem solved! Frank is now festive! I’m pretty sure that this is not what they had in mind and I look forward to the future note stating as much, but 1. Frank is very heavy and he doesn’t get moved and 2. I like him even if he’s not so great at warding off evil Karens.”
Here’s my big question about Frank the Christmas Gargoyle: is this completely made up for Internet clout? Where is a picture of the letter? Who is running this account? It’s not Frank, that’s for sure.
It’s also the perfect story to get attention because it involves an annoying woman telling people what to do, a fight with the HOA, and tips the hat to the paranoid fantasy of the War on Christmas. It’s got everything!
I decided to increase the degree of festiveness.
Sure you did, Frank.
Lots of people are enjoying the escalating number of Christmas decorations on this person’s stoop:
The decorations are pretty cute in themselves:
The flamingos are flocking today!!! Nothing says kitsch, and is at the same time completely awesome, as the plastic…
And the stories about Frank and the invisible letters his owner is receiving are fun:
We have a note!!! And she put it in the trash can!!Today, Karen wanted me to know that 1. I'm stupid and immature, 2….
The Christmas spirit is all about believing in things that probably never happened so we can feel closer together. Thank you, Frank, for keeping that spirit alive.
