A Pennsylvania man is terrorizing his neighbors with his unusual holiday decorations, which includes a beheaded choir, a hanging Mickey Mouse and a urinating Santa Claus.

"There was a Virgin Mary here, and he placed a knife through her head, right there on the edge of our driveway," said one woman "I thought it was a terroristic threat."

The owner of the home, Bill Ansell, leaves the decorations up all year. He once had one of the best decorated homes on the block, but a complaint from one of his neighbors about bright lights turned into an all out war that has gone on for the past 6 years, according to 20/20.

The neighbors say they feel trapped, and despite being fined numerous times, he has yet to clean up his yard.

Here's a report on Ansell from a few years ago via KDKA-TV:

From the Huffington Post:

“It’s kind of ironic,” Overstock President Stormy Simon told The Huffington Post on Wednesday. Simon said someone approached her after Tuesday’s press conference to remind her of the 2013 article. She hadn’t remembered the story, but the president of The Onion texted her after Tuesday’s announcement. “It’s hysterical,” she said. “Reading it today, I thought, ‘This looks like a press release!'”

Overstock’s new service will be part of Overstock’s membership program, Club O. For $19.95 per year, a Club O membership gets you extra discounts, free shipping, special deals at restaurants and more. Membership is free for students, first responders and military personnel.

“We think this makes perfect sense for us to get into this business,” [CEO Patrick] Byrne said.
