    But it’s too tall for the gate.

    I would have gone with a pink flamingo.

    Or a gnome. It could have been a gnome strike – the first of many in what would then be known as the Gnome Wars.

    I’ll take a ride to Beverly Hills, just before dawn.
    And knock the little jockeys off the rich people’s lawn.
    And before they get up, I’ll be gone. Frank Zappa

    In some versions, that was the point—the Trojans tore down the gate to get their trophy in, creating a fatal weakness in the walls. That way, the Greeks could not be kept out, even if the band in the horse would have been killed.

    of which the bard’s lament was written: Gnome-body Knows the Dibbles I’ve Seen.

    Lawn jockeys aren’t so bad once you get to gnome.

    I have never heard of a lawn jockey.
    Gnome, yes, jockey, nope.

    The black lawn jockeys often had exaggerated features, such as big eyes with the whites painted in, large red lips, large, flat nose and curly hair. These pieces were typically painted in gaudy colors for the uniform, with the flesh of the statue a gloss black. These statues are widely considered offensive and racially insensitive and many remaining samples have now been repainted using pink paint for the skin while the original sculpture’s exaggerated features remain.

    simpsonfan2, so they should have made their lawn jockey shorts.

    It doesn’t help me think of a huge Trojan statue when that one soldier’s shield reminds me of a lady bug shell.

    This PC version is white….. Probably Christian so it’s OK to denigrate it.
