(Headline USA) A “Cousin Eddie” display in Kentucky that was inspired by the holiday classic National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation apparently looked a little too real, and police were called to check it out.
After receiving the call, a dispatcher described the scene to responding officers as “a male standing outside. He is naked. He has a robe covering part of his body. He is exposing himself, and he has a hose between his legs.”
Officers arrived at the Shepherdsville home to find a mannequin in the yard that looked like Cousin Eddie, the character portrayed by Randy Quaid in several of the comedy franchise’s films.
It was decorated with a robe, a hat, a cigar and a beer and was holding what appeared to be an orange hose, WDRB-TV reported.
Homeowner Joni Keeney said she decided to put up the display from her favorite Christmas movie to have some fun.
“Everybody has a ‘Cousin Eddie,’ in their family, everybody,” Keeney said. “I just want people to have a good Christmas and get a laugh,” Keeney said.
Responding officers did get a laugh and took some photos of the display, WDRB reported.
“Never a dull moment,” Shepherdsville Police Chief Rick McCubbin said.
