Get Flocked!

NOT EVERYONE HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR!

Lawn Greetings aren’t for everyone and that is OK. Here is a list of people who might not want a lawn greeting in their yard.

  • Anyone who is so uptight, they are appalled at anything tacky.
  • Some one who recently experienced a traumatic event.
  • A person who HATES to have FUN.
  • Those who don’t have a good sense of humor.
  • A Flockaphobic: Someone who fears being flocked.
  • Paranoid Schizophrenics who will peep out their window and catch you.

WHO WOULD WANT A LAWN GREETING?

We have reviewed who is not a good candidate for a flocking, but here is a list of people who would appreciate a lawn greeting.

END OF AN AMERICAN ICON

Union Products shuts down

LEOMINSTER – Union Products Inc., maker of plastic lawn flamingos, shut down for good on Nov. 1, 2006. Citing rising costs for energy and plastic resins, the 50 year old company, perhaps most famous for the pink plastic flamingos, stopped manufacturing operations in June and laid off 30 full-time workers. Union Products says several companies have expressed an interest in purchasing the machinery molds for the pink flamingo lawn ornament.

On June 23rd, 2007, the Mayor of Leominster, MA declared this day Pink Flamingo Day. Don Featherstone, original creator of the plastic pink flamingo for Union Products, is from Leominster and still lives there. They picked the 23rd because it is supposed to be the anniversary of the Plastic Pink Flamingo which turned 50 years old last year.

So for Pink Flamingo Day, the association is trying to set a Guinness World Record for “The most Pink Flamingo displays set up in yards across the US and Canada on this day.” It’s a grass roots effort, but anyone can participate.
