My neighbors have some geese that they use to decorate the yard for Christmas. While they were out of town last weekend their son and his friend decided to change the tone of the Christmas display by hanging one of the geese in their tree. I don't think he has any issues with Canadians, but if you're plastic I guess you'd better watch out.
I like the brick. It makes it more of a science project and less of an act of ornamental violence.
